Klopp defends Karius after latest Liverpool blunder

Klopp defends Karius after latest Liverpool blunder

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp may be getting a headache as he tries to determine whether Sheyi Ojo, Harry Wilson or Ryan Kent can make a difference to his first-team next season.

"It [criticism] will probably happen for a while until he has a few fantastic games, that is how the situation is", he said.

Karius was back in goal on Saturday as Liverpool sauntered to a 7-0 win over Chester but the 25-year-old was caught on camera fumbling the ball into his own net during the warm-up.

A month-and-a-half on from the Champions League finals and Loris Karius is obviously still suffering the after-effects of that bothersome concussion he picked up in Kiev.

"We can not change that". We can't make a story after each mistake.

Ben Tollitt, who is a huge supporter of Klopp's side, turned around as he ran off to celebrate with Smith and shouted towards Karius 'you're f****** s****'. Our job is to support Loris, that's our part of the deal.

He smiled: "I don't like to say anything about myself but I am a hardworking player who always wants to help the team". Sadiq, 21, has struggled to pin down a regular shirt since linking up with AS Roma from Serie B side Spezia in 2015.

The first ones were small but as they evolved they tended towards gigantism to defend themselves against predators. Until now, it was believed it emerged with the appearance of the first sauropods in the Jurassic period.

After the pre-season friendly, Klopp was quick to defend his goalkeeper and while I expect nothing less from him, I really hope it's not an indication that Karius will continue between the sticks next season.

He remains Liverpool's preferred target, however, Karius is for now remaining Jurgen Klopp's No.1.

'Two brilliant footballers make mistakes but we only talk about one.

"No-one likes that goal but if we talk about the second goal I think it was Millie's (James Milner's) fault together with (Pedro) Chirvella".

On the match, Klopp continued: "Apart from the goals [conceded] everything was pretty much good". We play the games, we have the training sessions, they are nice fellas so it's nice to have them around and then let's see how it fits at the end.
