Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Friday night that the goalkeeper – who signed for the Reds from German side Mainz earlier this summer – would be out of action for a number of weeks after suffering a broken hand in Wednesday night’s 1-0 defeat by Chelsea in their International Champions Cup clash in Pasadena.

It marks a frustrating start to life at Liverpool for Karius, who would have been hoping to challenge first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet for a place in the Reds’ starting line-up in the early stages of the season.

However, the new Liverpool signing used his personal Instagram account to insist that he is staying positive as he now turns his attentions to a quick recovery.

Karius posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Saturday morning and wrote: “No time for negative thoughts. I’ll do everything to come back as soon as I can to join the lads again.

“It’s a long season and we have big plans. I wont let a broken hand stop me from chasing my dreams! #nevergiveup #LK1 #LFC @liverpoolfc”

Liverpool finished eighth in the Premier League table under Klopp last season.
