Loris Karius has explained the upturn in his form on being named the regular no.1 and playing consecutive matches.
The German reckons his shaky performances last term and earlier on in this season were the result of a lack of mach sharpness and being brought in on an irregular basis.
Yesterday, the 24-year-old helped Liverpool earn a clean-sheet, making two terrific saves in the first-half especially when Southampton were on top.
“It’s good and I feel good. Getting weekly game time is very important,” he told the official website.
“I’m still young; I had plenty of experience in the past but it’s different if you play week in, week out again and not just come in every other week for a midweek game.
“My confidence is coming and growing, I’m getting used to the game time again. It’s good for me.”
Karius must maintain this form if he wants to remain our long-term option between the sticks.
Liverpool are eyeing new goalkeepers for the summer, but if Karius proved he’s up to scratch, Jurgen Klopp will no doubt stick with him.
Simon Mignolet’s time at the club is up and we’re 100% certain he’ll be sold in the summer, but Karius’s future is in his own hands.
