A number of Liverpool fans are unhappy with the fact they did not manage to offload goalkeeper Loris Karius in the summer transfer window, with some fans even calling to ‘terminate his contract’.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper has spent the previous three seasons away from Anfield on loan at Besiktas and Union Berlin after his memorable Champions League final performance against Real Madrid in 2018.
Of course, it was memorable for all the wrong reasons, leading Jurgen Klopp to bring in Alisson to replace Karius before also signing Adrian as back-up, pushing the German shot-stopper further down the pecking order.
Despite their best attempts to find Karius a new club, there was no deal struck before Tuesday night’s deadline and the goalkeeper will now likely remain at the club until at least January, taking home £25k-per-week.
It concludes a pretty quiet and disappointing transfer window for the 2019/20 champions. Their only incoming was defender Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, with the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Marko Grujic, Harry Wilson and Xherdan Shaqiri all departing on permanent deals.
Liverpool fans furious with Karius situation
These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to make their feelings known that Karius is still at the club whilst they failed to bring in more faces in the transfer window, with one supporter calling it a ‘shambolic decision’.
“Making some living that lad”
“Doing what Exactly???”
“Terminate the contract”
“The club is answerable for these horrible decisions. They say affordability was an issue, so why is the limited money we got being wasted on the wages of 2 of the worst GKs in recent memory and a forward who can’t make the matchday squad? Shambolic decision making”
“That sums it up doesn’t it”
Liverpool fans couldn’t believe this piece of deadline day news…
