Jurgen Klopp asks media to back off Loris Karius following latest howler

11 July 2018

Jurgen Klopp was forced to defend Loris Karius after the goalkeeper's latest error in Liverpool's pre-season friendly win over Tranmere Rovers.

Karius, who cost Liverpool dearly with a pair of very bad mistakes in the Champions League final against Real Madrid, spilled Ollie Norburn's free-kick and Jonny Smith scored on the rebound.

A month-and-a-half on from the Champions League finals and Loris Karius is obviously still suffering the after-effects of that bothersome concussion he picked up in Kiev.

'No one likes that goal, but if we talk about that then the second goal is Milly's (James Milner's) fault, ' he said.

"Two brilliant footballers make this mistake, but we don't talk about it".

'Loris conceded that goal, but we can not create a story after every mistake.

On July 29, an appeals court will hear the case, which represents one more chance for el-Mazboh to get a reduced sentence. She also accused men of sexually harassing her and even called Egyptian women "prostitutes".

While senior figures like Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have to convince Klopp that they are better value than pursuing a forward in the transfer market.

"It will probably happen for a while until he has a few fantastic games, that's how the situation is". Our job is to support Loris. That you [the media] do what you do, we have to deal with it. I've seen this situation 500 times at least in my life - bam, against the chest and the ball is going down.

'You can stop it by not asking, promise?

Liverpool are understood to be tracking a number of goalkeepers.

It appears that one of the Tranmere players wasn't too impressed with Karius' howler, and he showed him little sympathy. "I would be really insane if I would not give these boys a chance - they are fantastic players, they've played fantastic games, so we will see what happens".
