Loris Karius revealed his pride at making his Liverpool debut after Friday night’s 1-0 victory over Tranmere Rovers.

The Germany Under-21 international started in goal for Jurgen Klopp’s side against the Merseyside rivals as the Reds got their pre-season campaign under way.

Karius managed to keep his first clean sheet, too, after second-half substitute Danny Ings scored a winner 11 minutes from time to help Klopp’s men make a winning start to the 2016/17 pre-season campaign.

The Liverpool signing took to his Instagram page following the 1-0 victory over Tranmere to express his pride at pulling on the famous Red shirt for the first time.

Karius posted the above photo on the photo-sharing app and wrote the following caption:

“Proud to have made my debut for @liverpoolfc tonight! 🔴👌🏼 #LK1 #LFC”

The 22-year-old shot stopped put pen to paper on a long-term contract after the German goalkeeper completed a £4.7m summer transfer from Bundesliga outfit Mainz in May.
