Danny Murphy makes prediction about Loris Karius at Liverpool FC
Danny Murphy believes that Loris Karius won't play again for Liverpool FC
Danny Murphy believes that Loris Karius won’t play for Liverpool FC again after his Champions League final nightmare.
The German goalkeeper was at fault for two of Real Madrid’s goals as the Spanish side claimed a 3-1 win over Liverpool FC in Kiev on Saturday to win the Champions League for the third season running.
Karius had been in good form in the months leading up to the final, but his two glaring errors led to Real Madrid lifting the trophy on Saturday.
Attentions will now inevitably turn towards the summer transfer window and whether Liverpool FC will look to bring in a new goalkeeper this summer or not.
And former Liverpool FC midfielder Murphy feels that the writing is on the wall for Karius after the disappointment of his performance on Saturday.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Murphy said: “I actually feel sorry for him. I really do.
“Nobody goes into a game wanting to make mistakes.
“Unfortunately I don’t think he’ll play in a Liverpool shirt again. It’s impossible for him.
“I think [with] the magnitude of the mistakes and the enormity of the game, the supporters will struggle with him being in goal for them.
“And the continual ribbing he will get week in, week out, wherever he goes – that’s going to be huge pressure for him.
“I just can’t see him playing again. That’s not being dramatic, that’s a reality of the situation.”
Liverpool FC confirmed their first signing of the summer on Sunday when they announced that they had agreed a deal to land Fabinho from Monaco.
The midfielder will officially become a Liverpool FC player on 1 July as Jurgen Klopp moved quickly to significantly bolster his squad at the start of the summer transfer window.
The Reds are still looking to win their first trophy under Klopp.
