Revealed: Majority of Liverpool fans want to swap out Karius for Ward

There was nobody more upset on the pitch in Kiev than Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius when the final whistle blew on the Reds’ Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May.

Jurgen Klopp’s side lost 3-1 to the Spanish giants, largely because of two preventable howlers from Karius.

Under hardly any pressure from Karim Benzema, the Liverpool keeper rolled the ball out inadvertently into the Madrid striker’s path, which led to Los Blancos’ first goal.

Later in the match, Karius failed to cope with Gareth Bale’s second goal of the night, despite the fact that it should have been a routine save.

In the weeks and months after the showpiece, transfer rumours were rife that Liverpool were on the hunt for a new goalkeeper.

The speculation keeps on rumbling, but there is one name that has received very little mention, and that is Danny Ward.

The 25-year-old has been at Anfield since 2012, but is yet to really get his chance in the first team.

The Wales international caught the eye during Euro 2016 when his nation reached the semi-finals of the tournament, and he also played  big hand in Huddersfield Town earning promotion to the Premier League when he played there on loan during the 2016-17 season.

Losing his position to third-choice keeper would be humiliating for Karius, but we asked you if Klopp would be right in giving Ward a chance if he fails to land a world-class stopper from elsewhere.

The majority of fans seem to have faith in the Welshman.
