Loris Karius is going to be haunted by his Champions League final clangers for a while, and supporters too are still nervous seeing him in goal.

He made his return for the Reds yesterday in their first pre-season game against Chester.

One fan captured a video of Karius fumbling an effort through his hands in a warm up, suggesting his Champions League mistakes were far from a one off.

 

Karius' Champions League howlers were blamed on a concussion... yesterday he had no such excuse.

Fortunately for Karius he kept a clean sheet against Chester, a game Liverpool won 7-0, and for his efforts he got a standing ovation from the fans in attendance.

On one hand what happens in a match is far more important than a warm up, but on the other hand, the pre-game errors simply serve to highlight his tendency for fumbling the ball.

Liverpool have been linked with replacing Karius but are yet to do so, and manager Jurgen Klopp is getting behind the German goalkeeper.

Some supporters were left angry by the Karius video and believe he needs replacing if the club is to win silverware this season...
