Loris Karius taunted with f-word by rival after friendly gaffe

Loris Karius’ was labelled “f***ing s****” by an opposition player after making another mistake in Liverpool’s win over Tranmere last night.

The Liverpool No.1 failed to gather a powerful free-kick from outside the box, allowing Tranmere to score from the resulting rebound.

But worse was to come for the for the German because he was mercilessly taunted by one of the Tranmere players immediately after the incident.

Ben Tollitt mouthed: “You’re f***ing s***e,” in the keeper’s direction, before the camera panned back to Karius.

Tranmere’s official Twitter account initially posted a video of the howler but quickly took it down.

Karius was at fault for two of Real Madrid’s three goals in May’s Champions League final defeat – after which it was revealed he was suffering from concussion – and Klopp knows the focus will continue to be on the 25-year-old.

“Yeah, it will probably happen for a while until he has a few fantastic games, that is how the situation is,” said the manager.

“We cannot change that. Our job is to perform and you do what you do and that is part of the deal.

“You (the media) can all stop it immediately – promise? You never ask again, that would be one little step.

Liverpool went on to win the friendly 3-2 with Fabinho and Naby Keita enjoying 45 minutes of action.
