Plenty of Liverpool fans have been reacting after images emerged of Loris Karius in training with the Reds’ squad in Austria.
The 27-year-old’s Liverpool career has been overshadowed by his two costly errors in the 2018 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, with further mistakes in pre-season later that summer adding to the damage to his reputation.
Karius’ spell in Turkey was also tainted by errors, including a misjudged charge from his goal in a Europa League match against Slovan Bratislava last year, while he blamed some mistakes on the positioning of floodlights impeding his vision.
Does Loris Karius deserve a shot at redemption with Liverpool?
Empire of the Kop asked followers if they feel that Karius deserves another chance at Liverpool, but many have already lost patience with the German following his error-strewn career:
No, sorry. Best of luck. Just never had the confidence to be a top GK. Doesn't command his box, too timid on corners and set pieces, below average with the ball at his feet, poor distribution, and lacked mental toughness.

Sell him for whatever we can get – give him away if necessary. Never want to see him play for any Liverpool team again.

Nope, sell him. Form was still patchy on loan regardless of the pay issues, not good enough even as a backup for us now

Get rid ASAP. Too many mistakes in him

In a word no. I’d also be worried about squad influence and just move him on
