Liverpool fans want Loris Karius replaced

Loris Karius

Some fans on Twitter have urged Liverpool to focus all their attention on signing a new goalkeeper as their top priority, with the likes of Nabil Fekir less important.

The Champions League final against Real Madrid last season was a nightmare and the way things went down left a bad taste in the mouth. Mohamed Salah’s injury was unlucky and unavoidable but Loris Karius really let his teammates down.

Concussion or not, the German was poor and the fact that he made a similar mistake to the error for Gareth Bale’s second goal in Kiev in the second game of pre-season really highlights the lack of quality on his part and hasn’t put fans at ease following the cup final defeat.

Worse yet, it seems unlikely that Jurgen Klopp will be making a move for a new goalkeeper this summer despite the wishes of supporters on social media.

Simply put, Liverpool cannot go into the new season with Karius as the no.1 and seriously expect to win silverware. The German’s display in Kiev backs this up and hopefully after his most recent mistake, Klopp has taken note and will act accordingly.

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.


  1. We can’t keep chopping and changing three average keepers in the vain hope one of them might come good. Can anybody really compare our keepers with the ones at City, United, Chelsea, Spurs or even Everton? Come on, let’s get real here. We get a top keeper or we are trying to overtake four top teams with a known weakness in our team and that is just not going to happen. Alisson had a very indifferent WC so, personally, I would go for Butland as he is used to the knocks of our game here and is an imposing figure.
