Liverpool fans on social media aren’t happy with those bashing Karius

Being Loris Karius this summer must have been hard. After some howlers in the Champions League final and now a string of errors in pre-season, Karius has been forced to come out on social media and defend himself, which you can read on Empire of the Kop. It also looks like the German will be playing second fiddle at Anfield now as the club has signed Alisson Becker from Roma.

Karius took to Instagram yesterday after he committed yet another mistake in Liverpool’s pre-seaosn friendly against Borussia Dortmund. The German put a message out to the fans defending himself after his errors and claiming that he hopes good things come to those who have so much anger and hate in them that they enjoy seeing others fail. This came across as a big message from the 25-year-old as he looks to regain some of his shattered confidence.

It’s never easy making a mistake as a top-level pro. Especially when that mistake comes in your football club’s biggest game in 13 years. Even with the Champions league final aside, yesterday Karius looked shaky against Dortmund, shanking a clearance straight to Maximillian Phillip in the first-half, although Phillip was unable to score the open goal. Then, in the 93rd minute, Karius parried a tame Christian Pulisic straight into the path of the on-rushing Jacob Bruun Larsen who made the score 3-1.

You can see what the Liverpool fans have been saying in defence of Karius here:

A lot of Liverpool fans are yet to forgive Karius, although that doesn’t warrant them attacking the goalkeeper personally and many fans are starting to defend their out-of-favour ‘keeper.
