The season has not even begun yet and Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius is already under fire.
The 25-year-old was ridiculed for making two costly errors during the Reds’ Champions League defeat to Real Madrid in May.
Under zero pressure, the German shot-stopper rolled the ball into the path of Karim Benzema, who opened the scoring for Los Blancos.
Later in the match, Karius fumbled a comfortable save, which led to Gareth Bale’s second goal in the 3-1 triumph.
After the final whistle, it became clear that Liverpool fans no longer wanted the German as number one.
That feeling intensified when Karius made another fumble during a pre-season friendly earlier this month.

Just when it looked like Liverpool were going to be resigned to keeping the former Mainz shot-stopper, the club announced the arrival of Alisson.
The Brazilian finalised a £66m move from Roma, and in the process became the most expensive goalkeeper in the world.
