Flashback: Loris Karius’ Champions League blunder

Flashback: Loris Karius’ Champions League blunder - Transfer Flashbacks

It’s finally here. Champions League fever has once again swept through the streets of Liverpool, which must now collectively brace themselves for yet another final. What a season it’s been. But if it is to end without a trophy it will have to go down as a missed opportunity of mass proportions.

The Reds enter the fixture as heavy favourites, but fans will certainly not be celebrating just yet. The pain of their devastating defeat at the hands of Real Madrid is all too fresh. Perhaps even more so because of the fashion in which it entailed. Goalkeeper Loris Karius took it into his own hands (or rather failed to) with not one, but two calamitous blunders that essentially handed the prestigious trophy to the European giants.

It’s fair to say, the fans were not best pleased. Some of the abuse was horrific. Others understood that while this was disgracefully inappropriate, Karius could no longer retain a place in the team.

Karius is now a thing of the past, currently located in Turkey after a loan move to Besiktas. But the memories of his blunders live on in the despairing memories of Liverpool fans. With a win all will be forgotten. But just as there wasn’t last year — there’s no room for mistakes.

Liverpool fans, how did you react to Karius’ performance last year? Was it the worst goalkeeping performance in a Champions League final of all time? Comment below.
