Loris Karius Liverpool: Reds goalkeeper backed by club legend Steven Gerrard


Jurgen Klopp moved swiftly following the Champions League final defeat against Real Madrid in May to secure the services of the defensive midfielder who completed a £39million move from Monaco.

'But if nothing happens then they will play of course.

Klopp explained that the former Germany manager told him that a highly respected doctor believed that Karius suffered concussion in Kiev that night. Perhaps we can win the Champions League; we were so close to winning it last season. I thought it was too late, you can not check that but now I know a concussion isn't coming and going in a day - if you have one, you see it days later. "We don't think about that anymore and we start completely new", said Klopp".

"When someone like Mo Salah commits and says this place is my home now, it speaks very loudly I think".

Karius, who was diagnosed as suffering from concussion by two American doctors days after the final as a result of an elbow from Real hardman Sergio Ramos, is likely to start in goal for the Premier League side in a pre-season friendly with Chester City on Saturday.

Harry Wilson is determined to do well at Liverpool this season and the club's fans want him to get an opportunity to do so. "Is he capable of parking that up, moving on and drawing from the experience", he said.

Rangers manager Steven Gerrard has suggested to The Liverpool Echo that Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has the potential to be very good.

Klopp is happy with the quick turnaround and wants his squad, which should contain new signings Fabinho and Naby Keita, to hit the ground running at the Deva Stadium. If you make a mistake in a Champions League final, it's a mistake you can not change anymore, even if you want to - and we all want to.

It will be tough for the German youngster to recover from his horror-show against Madrid and Klopp has been tipped to sign a new keeper this summer with Alisson reportedly his prime target. "I'm optimistic about the future and I'm looking forward to winning a lot of titles with Liverpool".

"It's great to see how quickly he adapted to Liverpool which is obviously encouraging for me".
