As things stand, it looks like Loris Karius will continue as Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper heading into the new season.
If you recall, the German made two rather substantial errors in the Champions League final a couple of months ago, thus scuttling the Reds in their efforts to usurp Real Madrid and exposing himself to several weeks of sustained pillory from all and sundry.
Still, Jurgen Klopp has reportedly decided not to sign a new ‘keeper, instead placing his faith in Karius to defy the lingering doubts and come roaring back to form.
Unfortunately, as spotted in the background of a pitchside broadcast from Liverpool’s pre-season friendly against Chester FC on Saturday afternoon, Karius seemed to be still suffering from the after effects of that pesky concussion…
Might be worth giving Jan Oblak’s agent another call.
