Karius needs to revive career away from Liverpool scrutiny

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius should leave Anfield this summer after admitting that he is considering his future, reports the Daily Star.

What’s the word?

The writing was on the wall for Karius following his blunder-filled performance in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May.

The German was given the chance as number one in January, but after two costly mistakes in the 3-1 loss in Kiev, everyone – even maybe Karius – knew that a change had to be made.

It took a while, but manager Jurgen Klopp finally landed the keeper of his choice in the form of Brazil international Alisson from Roma.

At the moment it is unclear what this means for Karius, but according to the Daily Star, the 25-year-old suggested to reporters that he could leave Liverpool this summer.

“I don’t know. I can’t say what I’m doing right now. There’s still some time left.”

What should he do?

Merseyside cannot be the most enjoyable place for Karius right now, for a number of reasons.

The former Mainz player has just lost his number one spot and he has been subjected to vile criticism online, from Liverpool fans as well as rivals.

Every single mistake he has made since has been intensified, and unfortunately for the young keeper, it is becoming toxic.

The best option for him would be to move on and get back on track elsewhere, but there probably will not be that many top-level clubs that will want him.

Karius may have to drop down a league or join a club overseas in order to build up his confidence.
