Liverpool fans can’t help but feel sorry for Loris Karius after horror final performance

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius had a Saturday night to forget after contributing heavily to a 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final.

Gifting the Spaniards’ opener after throwing the ball into the path of Karim Benzema, he then failed to deal with a Gareth Bale shot, palming it into the net for the third and fatal goal.

After months of consistent form between the sticks for the Reds, it was a cruel end to the season and hearkened back to periods when the goalkeeper was under pressure on a weekly basis due to mistakes.

No-one was more disappointed with the performance than the shot-stopper himself, visibly emotional at the end of the game and seen trying to apologise to the thousands of travelling supporters.

While there was obvious frustration from Liverpool fans around the world at his display, many have, perhaps surprisingly, taken to social media to offer him support and their backing, believing that he should not be singled out for the errors.

Can he put this mistake behind him? Or is it the beginning of the end of his Liverpool career?
