A number of Liverpool fans have been calling for Loris Karius to remain at Anfield this summer, replacing Adrian as Alisson’s deputy in goal.
Karius famously experienced a shocking night back in 2018 as the Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the Champions League final. The German made two huge errors which ultimately proved fatal to his side’s chances of European glory and it was hard to see how he would come back from that nightmare.
In truth, Karius hasn’t recovered, with the 27-year-old not making a single Liverpool first team appearance in the three years since, undergoing loan spells at Besiktas and Union Berlin.
With the 2020/21 campaign reaching its conclusion, however, Karius is expected to return to Merseyside for pre-season, at which point a decision will be made over his future.
While it appears unlikely that he will be retained by Jurgen Klopp, some supporters would like to see him stay instead of Adrian, who has also been unconvincing for the Reds on the domestic and European stage.

These Liverpool fans took to Twitter to provide their thoughts, reacting to a social media post shared by @LFCTransferRoom.
“Keep him as number 2 and get rid of Adrian“
“I’m over it, get him in the squad“
“Would rather him over Adrian“
“Much better than Adrian in my book“
“Better number 2 than Adrian! People forget he was decent before the EL”
“Bring him back. He’s miles better that Adrian“
