Arsenal legend Ian Wright: I thought Liverpool would have learned from this
Ian Wright discusses Liverpool's problems with their goalkeepers this season under Jurgen Klopp
Ian Wright has admitted his surprise at Liverpool’s problems with their goalkeepers this season.
Loris Karius was brought in from Mainz by Jurgen Klopp in the summer transfer window to add competition for shot-stopper Simon Mignolet at Anfield.
Karius was immediately handed the number one jersey at Anfield but the German has failed to convince for the Reds and was criticised for a shaky performance against Bournemouth at the weekend.
Liverpool conceded four second-half goals as they were pegged back and beaten 4-3 by the Cherries at the Vitality Stadium.
And Arsenal legend Wright has admitted that he has been surprised that Liverpool did not bring in a more reliable goalkeeper over the summer.
Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live’s 606 show, Wright said: “Mignolet came across to Liverpool and he was brilliant and I thought ‘he’ll be fine’. But then he continued to make mistakes.
“And you would think Liverpool would learn.
“I thought Karius would be somebody who would be ready to go. But he is too nervy, he’s apprehensive.”
Liverpool’s loss to Bournemouth at the weekend left Klopp’s side in third place in the Premier League table and four points behind leaders Chelsea after 14 games of the new season.
The Reds take on West Ham United this weekend in their next top flight game.
