It could be a long, hard season ahead for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius after he made another notable mistake in between the sticks.
The German, who is valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt, received huge criticism for his performance in the Champions League final two months ago.
Two mistakes led to goals as Real Madrid ran out 3-1 winners in Kiev, which led to many fans calling for Karius to be axed from the squad.
Liverpool have been linked to a handful of keepers in this summer’s transfer window, but as of yet, the club have had no luck in finding the ideal candidate.
At the moment, Karius remains number one, but plenty of fans have urged manager Jurgen Klopp to make a change following yet another gaffe in goal.
Who do you think will win the World Cup? Let us know here and win any World Cup shirt of your choice.
On Tuesday night, the Reds took part in a pre-season friendly against Tranmere, which ended in a 3-2 win for the Premier League club.
The main talking point after the match, though, was Karius’s howler which led to a goal from Jonny Smith.
Ollie Norburn’s 25-yard free kick was hit straight at the keeper, but he ended up spilling the ball and feeding it to Smith, who slotted home.
On Twitter, hordes of Liverpool fans vented their frustration.
Keeping Karius as our first choice smacks of a team that aren’t interested in winning stuff. No point in all those goals from Salah bobby and mane when you have a crap keeper

Type Karius in twitter search. Brutal. From every fan base. It’s only gonna get worse.

Our biggest strength is often our biggest weaknes too; The ONE thing that worries me most about Klopp is the same thing I love about him, his Optimism.

I don’t mind Karius making these kind of mistakes in friendlies… it’s not like he has done it in the a Champions League final… oh wait. #LFC

Just seen #Karius mistake, surly there must be a better keeper out there that won’t cost the earth to replace him, what must Danny Ward be thinking being number 2 to him. #LFC will win nothing with him in goal.

I hope to god that klopp sees sense before its too late! If he still believes that karius should carry on as first choice GK for us then im sorry to say it but my confidence in klopp has gone completely!

I get the whole point around supporting our players through thick and thin but Karius is testing us…the fact that he has this arrogance about him doesn’t help. Arrogance is accepted when you’re world class, not when you’re Karius ?
