Loris Karius Comments On UEFA Champions League Horror Show

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has broken his silence regarding his horror show against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final in Kyiv on Saturday.

The 24-year-old's errors gifted Los Blancos two crucial goals which helped them walk away as 3-1 winners on the night, seeing the Spanish giants being crowned European champions for the third consecutive season.


In a series of posts on Twitter, the Reds' No. 1 apologised to the Liverpool fans for his mistakes and admitted that he had not slept much since the two incidents, which saw Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale find the back of the net. 


"Haven't really slept until now... the scenes are still running through my head again and again... I'm infinitely sorry to my teammates, for you fans, and for all the staff," Karius wrote on Twitter.

"I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down...

"As I said, I'd like to turn back the time, but that's not possible. It's even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time…

"Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game. I don't take that for granted, and once again it showed me what a big family we are. Thank you, and we will come back stronger."


The German goalkeeper has had several death threats sent to him and his family via social media since the final whistle, and Merseyside Police have confirmed that they are investigating these comments. 


"Merseyside Police can confirm officers are aware of a number of comments/threats made towards football players via social media," a statement from Merseyside Police read.


"The force takes social media posts of this nature extremely seriously and any offences identified will be investigated.


"Merseyside Police would like to remind social media users that any offences including malicious communications and threatening behaviour will be investigated."

Karius made 33 appearances for Liverpool in 2017/18, keeping 16 clean sheets along the way.

Mistakes do happen in games like these; small margins. Loris is still young. He'll grow from these mistakes. Let's not forget that he made crucial saves in the Kyiv final. To him: go for counseling, recharge, chin up and come back. You're a good keeper

Shame on you boy you were supposed to fake n injury so that they withdraw you frm the starting 11, Barcows supporters are not talking abt your blanders they shift it to Mr S Ramos, that game was 4 men not boys it was too big for you, look Salah was clever he fake it, its working for him, not long ago he will be playing again

You're forgiven boy you managed to take Liverpool to this height, at your age it was expected that you can commit these kind of mistakes playing UCL final against the experienced Real Madrid
