Danny Murphy suggests Loris Karius may have played his final Liverpool game

Danny Murphy suggests Loris Karius may have played his final Liverpool game

July 2, 2018

Former Liverpool defender Danny Murphy believes Loris Karius may have played his final game in the Reds shirt after his Champions League final showing against Real Madrid. The German footballer was guilty of making two calamitous errors during the match and this eventually cost the Reds, who lost the final by a 3-1 scoreline.

Speaking after the game, Murphy sympathised for the shot-stopper but does not feel that he would feature in the Liverpool shirt again, he told TalkSPORT: “I actually feel sorry for him, I really do. Nobody goes into a game wanting to make mistakes. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’ll play in a Liverpool shirt again. I think it’s impossible for him. I think the magnitude of the mistakes, the enormity of the game, the supporters will struggle with him being in goal for them and the continual ribbing he will get week in week out where ever he goes, that’s going to be huge pressure for him and I just can’t see him playing again.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that he is unsure what the future holds for Simon Mignolet, who is presently the Reds’ back-up shot-stopper. The Belgium international has fallen behind Loris Karius in the pecking order for the number one role with his last appearance coming in the 3-2 FA Cup loss to West Bromwich Albion.


Speaking in a press conference, Klopp refused to discuss Mignolet’s long-term future with the Reds, and admits he is more focused on the club’s Champions League tie versus Porto on Wednesday night, he said: “Nobody knows about the future, or I don’t know about the future. In this business it is always the same – it says nothing about that. It’s not for me to think about these kind of things. I have to make a decision for tomorrow night and that’s all. No problem.”
