Karius to remain Liverpool No.1
Jurgen Klopp is ready to disappoint – and shock – Liverpool fans by reiterating his faith in Loris Karius as his number one.
And the Reds boss is prepared to back the under-fire keeper going into the new season, as he refuses to panic or over-react to the desire amongst the majority of the support to see him replaced.
The German coach takes his squad to Chester on Saturday for the first pre-season game of the summer, with Karius pencilled in to start, as new signings Naby Keita and Fabinho are also given a run-out.
Klopp understands may fans will be amazed at the prospect of Karius still in goal after his Champions’ League final meltdown.
But the manager is insistent with NO target he rates currently available, there is no point in plunging into the transfer market just for the sake of it – and he will passionately argue that point with fans.
Liverpool HAVE targeted a keeper this summer. Yet they have simply been priced out of any move Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak, and Brazil number one Alisson.
