Liverpool fans react on Twitter as Loris Karius guilty of howler for Besiktas

Loris Karius’ reputation has taken a serious knock since committing two blunders in the 2018 Champions League final with Liverpool, and he has made another huge mistake for loan side Besiktas – prompting reaction from Liverpool fans on Twitter.

Karius, 26, rolled the ball against Karim Benzema who scored for Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final, before failing to keep out Gareth Bale’s long-range effort as Liverpool suffered a 3-1 defeat to Zinedine Zidane’s side.

The summer after that defeat saw Karius move to Turkish giants Besiktas on a two-year loan deal, but he hardly showed the quality that is needed to return to Liverpool last season with just six clean sheets in 35 outings last term.

This season, Karius has hardly improved, conceding eight goals in four games and he compounded that form with an awful mistake as Slovan Bratislava beat his side 4-2. Karius misjudged the ball, allowing Andraž Šporar to tap home.

Back in the summer of 2016, Karius joined Liverpool for £4.75million (Telegraph) and did decent at Anfield. He conceded just 47 goals in 49 outings for Liverpool, and clocked up a very strong record of 22 clean sheets.

Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to Karius’ appalling mistake, which is just another example of a string of poor performances that has seen Karius’ career to dwindle downwards.
