Loris Karius in danger of losing Besiktas spot amid social media criticism - reports

After Loris Karius' tumultuous Champions League final, Shaka Hislop feels his move to Besiktas will be a breath of fresh air for him.

Liverpool goalkeeper Karius, who is on loan at the Turkish club, was beaten by a deflected cross and faced heavy criticism on social media.

Liverpool never told me to leave after Champions League final - Loris Karius

Liverpool may be top of the Premier League and unbeaten, but Stevie Nicol says they must be far more clinical to keep top spot.
Liverpool cantered past a limp Southampton at Anfield to stay perfect in the Premier League this season.

Loris Karius said it took him nearly two weeks to get over the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May but insisted he was never told he had to leave the club this summer.

After Loris Karius' tumultuous Champions League final, Shaka Hislop feels his move to Besiktas will be a breath of fresh air for him.

On-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius conceded a late equaliser in his first appearance for Besikstas, a 1-1 draw against Bursaspor on Sunday.

Karius, who finalised a two-year loan on Aug. 25, came out to claim a cross from the byline from Bursaspor midfielder Yusuf Erdogan, but forward Diafra Sakho reached it at the edge of the box before the goalkeeper and tapped home in the 86th minute.

Replaced in July as Liverpool's No. 1 by Alisson, who signed from Roma for a club record €62.5 million,...

Jurgen Klopp wanted me to stay at Liverpool - Loris Karius

Loris Karius says he had to convince Jurgen Klopp to let him join Besiktas as the Liverpool manager was keen on keeping him at Anfield for the season.

Karius was unveiled as a Besiktas player on Wednesday, having joined the Turkish side on a two-year loan deal that could become permanent if certain performance criteria are met.

He had lost his place as Liverpool's No. 1 following the arrival of Alisson, with the German keen on securing game time after his nightmare performance in the Champions League...
