Liverpool FC – According to recent claims, 29-year-old goalkeeper Loris Karius is close to returning to the English first division.
The German goalkeeper left Liverpool in this current summer transfer window after his contract with Anfield came to an end.
A disappointing career for the former red stopper, who showed promising vocals early in his tenure, until the 2018 Champions League final. A date soon to be forgotten for the goalkeeper and for many Liverpool fans.
Many will remember Karius for the two mistakes he made when he conceded two goals against Real Madrid. He gave the first ball to Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale’s long shot that eventually slipped out of his hands and went in.
Although Liverpool gave the stopper plenty of opportunities to redo his career, sending him on loan and even letting him work with the coaching staff at the club, he was never able to come back to his best.
At the end, Loris Karius had no choice but to leave Liverpool, with the suggestion that he would travel back to Germany, where many Bundesliga clubs ‘said’ they were interested in him.
