Loris Karius (born 22 June 1993) is a German footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Liverpool.

Liverpool careerEdit

Despite Simon Mignolet signing a new long term contract, his inconsistent performances continued speculation that Jurgen Klopp- known to be ruthless with transfers- would sign a new goalkeeper in the summer of 2016, to compete with or even replace Mignolet.

Many names were linked, Bernd Leno, Timo Horn, even Barcelona's young keeper Marc Andre Ter-Stegen was linked with a move, but on 23 May 2016, it was reported that Karius was in Liverpool to undergo a medical. A day later, it was officially confirmed that Liverpool had agreed a deal of a reported £4,700,000 to sign Karius. It was also confirmed that the German would take the number one shirt, last worn by Brad Jones.

Karius started pre-season well, but broke his hand in a training session, ruling him out for six weeks. On 20 September 2016, Karius finally made his competitive debut, keeping a clean sheet in a 3-0 win at Derby. Karius kept his place for the next game, a 5-1 thrashing of Hull City, which seemed to solidify his place in the starting eleven.

After a shaky start at the club, Karius came under a lot of criticism after spilling a shot in the last minute, allowing Nathan Ake to score a late winner in a 4-3 defeat at Bournemouth, with some fans calling for Simon Mignolet to return to the starting lineup. He kept his place however for the next game, but was again seen to be somewhat at fault for both goals in a 2-2 draw with West Ham. This led to him being replaced by Mignolet for the next game.
