It was 90 minutes that conditioned his future. The young archer Loris Karius felt the pressure to play a Champions League final against Real Madrid in a packed stadium to overflow and was the star of the night at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine.
No football lover who has seen that game can forget the mistakes of the German goalkeeper, who gave the first goal to Karim Benzema and could not contain a distant shot and in the middle of the goal by Gareth Bale with which Real Madrid ended sentencing the match.
Her tears touched fans. The 24-year-old goalkeeper (in that final) knew that he was ultimately responsible for that defeat and Liverpool subsequently made the decision to send it on loan to a lower quality team so you can regain confidence.
Two months later, instead, the “Reds” they hired Alisson Becker in exchange for 62.5 million euros plus 10 in variables, making it one of the most expensive in history.
Karius went straight to Turkish football, Besiktas welcomed him and gave him ownership. The agreement was signed for two seasons, which would come to an end next June. However, the German continued to have problems under all three suits. conceding unusual goals and being the protagonist of bloopers that traveled the world.
According to the statistics provided by the specialized site Transfermarkt, in the last year, the former Liverpool played 32 matches and received 46 goals.
Beyond its performance, the relations between the player and the institution are broken. The footballer denounced the Turkish club to FIFA and asked to terminate his contract for non-payment, Besiktas must pay him 450 thousand euros.
“Karius has gone to FIFA for defaults on his salary to request the termination of his contract. He wants us to pay him for the months he has not played ”, Erdal Torunogullari, a club manager, said at the time, while showing his discomfort.
Although the goalkeeper’s return to England would be a good way to start again, the truth is that at Liverpool he no longer has a secure place.
It will be impossible for Karius to obtain ownership, knowing that he will have to fight with one of the least beaten goalkeepers of the season, who was champion of the Champions League last tournament and who, before the suspension of the league by coronavirus, was about to be champion of the Premier League .
When looking at the bank you will also have another name that is above it. Adrian the experienced 33-year-old goalkeeper who he won the relay position of the Brazilian based on good performances while his colleague was injured.
In this context, the footballer and his agent are obliged to get a club quickly If he wants to maintain a certain prominence within professional football, he could still be relegated to the shadows, occupying the place of Jurgen Klopp’s third overall goalkeeper.
