Loris Karius sends message to his Liverpool team-mates
Loris Karius was preparing to watch his first game as a Liverpool player on Sunday as the injured goalkeeper settled on his couch for the Red’s clash against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
The Germany Under-21 international is currently sidelined with a broken hand after the 23-year-old suffered the injury following a clash with Dejan Lovren during Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat by Chelsea in United States last month.
Karius was the first of Jurgen Klopp’s seven summer signings after the shot stopper completed a £4.7m switch to the 18-time English champions from Bundesliga outfit Augsburg at the start of the summer.
Liverpool’s first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet started in goal for Klopp’s side against the Gunners and Karius could only watch on from the comfort of his home on Sunday afternoon.
Karius posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:
“Finally @premierleague starts for us! I’ll support the lads in front of the TV today… Can’t wait for the kick-off! 💪🏼🔴 #YNWA #AFCvLFC @liverpoolfc”
Liverpool are bidding to improve on their eighth-place finish under Klopp last season after the German coach replaced Brendan Rodgers in October.
The Reds haven’t won the English top-flight crown since 1990.
