Karius Excited to Face New Challenges


Liverpool – Loris Karius ‘ career has been a mess in the last four years. The 2022/2023 season will be the momentum for Karius’ revival.
Karius was brought in by Liverpool from Mainz in 2016 and has alternated between goalkeepers with Simon Mignolet. Then, in 2017/2018, Karius officially locked the position.

However, Karius’ performance was never fully convincing due to several blunders. The climax was in the 2018 Champions League final when Liverpool lost 1-3 to Real Madrid.

Two of Madrid’s three goals were the result of Karius’ blunders which made him all-out in the spotlight. The arrival of Alisson Becker that summer https://minimore.com/b/xvOds/1 officially ended Karius’ career at Anfield.

Karius was twice loaned out to Besiktas and Union Berlin, but his career slumped even further. Sent home last year, Karius ended up not playing at all in the 2021/2022 season and was released free of charge.

Karius admits that the dark times during these four years were painful. However, it provides a valuable lesson for Karius, who is mentally stronger to face new challenges.

“There were ups and downs while I was there. It’s part of the game, yes, that’s how football is. But I became a better individual,” Loris Karius told Sky Sports Germany.

“The level of our training every day and also the professional attitude of the players is so unique. I’ve never felt it before and that’s why we’ve been so successful here. That’s the spirit that I want to bring to my next job.”

Karius made 49 appearances for Liverpool, conceding 47 goals and keeping 22 clean sheets. It is not known where he will be next season.

“I am now free and can make my own choices. I can’t wait to face this new situation. New challenges lie ahead, but it’s always exciting. I’m mentally and physically ready.”
