‘That’s how it goes in football’

TRANSFER NEWS

Klopp initially backed Karius after his nightmare performance in the Champions League final but now the goalkeeper seems to be heading for an Anfield exit

Jurgen Klopp has defended his U-turn regarding goalkeeper Loris Karius who is edging closer to an Anfield exit.

The 25-year-old’s future at the club appears to be over following the £67million arrival of Alisson Becker from Roma last summer.

Karius’ last competitive appearance in a Liverpool shirt came in the Champions League final loss to Real Madrid

Besiktas is the likely destination for Karius after the Turkish side appeared to confirm the £9.5m signing on their official Twitter account.

Karius was at fault for two goals during Liverpool’s 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May, but it was implied the club would give him another chance.

He also made a series some mistakes during Liverpool’s pre-season game against Tranmere as well as their International Champions Cup defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s clash against Brighton, Klopp insisted that “things in football change.”

Karius’ move to Besiktas appears imminent

The Liverpool manager said: “There’s nothing new about Loris.

“If it happens that’s how it goes in football, these things can happen.

“As a manager you don’t usually need much time between one game and another to get the sack, that’s how things can change.

“Things in football change.”
