Loris Karius snapped a selfie at Melwood training ground after his first two sessions as a Liverpool player.

The Germany Under-21 international lined up with his new team-mates for the first time this weekend after the shot stopper completed a £4.7m move from Bundesliga side Mainz in May.

Karius, who started his career at Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Manchester City before a return to his native Germany, has been handed the number one shirt at Anfield.

And the 23-year-old posed for a selfie in Melwood training ground following his second pre-season training session ahead of his first Premier League campaign.

Karius posted the above photo and wrote the following caption on his Instagram page: “First two days of preseason @liverpoolfc: done ✔️ More to come… 💪🏼😉 #LK1 #LFC #YNWA”

The German shot stopper made 96 appearances for Mainz during four seasons at the Bundesliga outfit.

Karius has made one appearance for the Germany Under-21 international side after having worked his way up through the national team’s youth system.
