Danny Murphy can’t see Loris Karius playing for Liverpool again after his two mistakes in the Champions League final against Real Madrid on Saturday.
The German was at fault for Real’s first and third goal as the Reds lost 3-1 in the showpiece event and he was pictured going over to apologise to the fans at the end of the match.
The goalkeeping position has been a problem for Jurgen Klopp for a long time with Karius and Simon Mignolet struggling to put together a consistent run of form.
Liverpool have been linked with a number of new goalkeepers and Murohy thinks it is unlikely that Karius will ever play for Liverpool again.
“I actually feel sorry for him, I really do,” Murphy told Jim White on talkSPORT.
“Nobody goes into a game wanting to make mistakes. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’ll play in a Liverpool shirt again.
“I think it’s impossible for him. I think the magnitude of the mistakes, the enormity of the game, the supporters will struggle with him being in goal for them and the continual ribbing he will get week in week out where ever he goes, that’s going to be huge pressure for him and I just can’t see him playing again.
“That’s not being dramatic, that’s just the reality of the situation.
“I can’t remember too many games of such importance where the keeper has had such a bad influence.”
