Loris Karius set to be handed further Besiktas lifeline

Liverpool goalkeeper, Loris Karius, is set to be handed another chance by Turkish giants Besiktas. 

The 26-year-old is currently in 18 months into a two-year loan deal with the club. After flopping for Liverpool and making numerous errors, the Turkish side took a chance on Karius.

And despite a nervy start to life with Besiktas, Karius has been in fine form of late, prompting the club to consider making another move for the ‘keeper.

According to Turkish media outlet Fanatik, Besiktas will look to offer Liverpool another loan deal for Karius at the end of the season.

That would ensure the stopper is in Turkey for the 2020/21 season at least. Any move permanent move after that would need to be discussed between the two clubs.

Karius has played every game in the Turkish top-flight this season for Besiktas. He’s kept an impressive enough six clean sheets too.


Few goalkeepers have struggled at Liverpool quite like Loris Karius did. He seemed to make mistake after mistake and a lot of those came in high profile games.

Indeed, he even gifted Real Madrid a goal in the Champions League final two years back.

However, he seems to have recovered somewhat and is now playing well for Besiktas. Sometimes players just need to build up some confidence and get a run of games behind them.

Loris Karius certainly seems to have done this with Besiktas and the signs are looking positive for his future.

This won’t bother Liverpool and is arguably the best-case scenario. They get a club willing to pay his wages and potentially get someone willing to take him full-time too.

Karius won’t be remembered too fondly at Anfield. But all he can is get his head down and knuckle down. In fairness to him, he seems to be doing just that.
