Loris Karius rocks Liverpool with admission about future

Posted by

Loris Karius admits he is weighing up his options in the transfer window after being demoted to Liverpool’s backup.

 

Jurgen Klopp recently confirmed Alisson will slot straight in as Liverpool’s new first choice goalkeeper following his £65million move from Roma.

Karius will subsequently play second fiddle to the Brazilian following his nightmare Champions League final and nervy start to the club’s pre-season campaign.

The German was subject to more criticism on Sunday when he mishandled a shot into the path of Borussia Dortmund’s Jacob Bruun Larsen for a close-range tap-in.

Karius took to social media after the 3-1 defeat to Dortmund to stand up to his critics after receiving a host of hurtful messages.

Speaking after the game, Karius hinted that he is considering his future at the club ahead of the transfer window’s deadline.

He said: “Of course that’s not perfect for me, but I cannot say much more about that either,” per the Telegraph.

“I do not know that, I cannot say what I’m doing right now, there’s still some time left [in the transfer window].”

It seems unlikely Liverpool would be open to selling Karius having recently allowed Danny Ward to join Leicester City in a permanent deal.

Simon Mignolet has also been strongly linked with an Anfield exit this summer after falling out of favour under Klopp last season.

The Belgian was recently rumoured as a target for Barcelona, who are preparing for life without wantaway backup Jasper Cillessen.

Klopp now faces a tough decision over how to utilise Karius until Alisson is able to make his debut against Napoli in Dublin on August 4.

The Liverpool boss could hand first-team opportunities to youth keepers Kamil Grabara and Caoimhin Kelleher over the Reds’ remaining two games of their USA tour.
