Karius eyeing long-term future as Liverpool’s number one

Loris Karius, who has been in and out of the first team, now says he is targeting a long run in the Liverpool team after he was installed as the club’s No 1 goalkeeper.

Jurgen Klopp insists the German is now his first-choice having finally displaced Simon Mignolet over the last month.

Karius said:

“I just want to present myself well and then I’ll have the chance to play at this club for the next season as well. That’s the challenge facing me personally, I also want to help this team achieve as much as we can. As well as the top four, we still have the Champions League. We want to go forward in that and why not win it?”

“If you read the press as a Liverpool player then every week we would have five new signings in every position. You can’t go crazy about the speculation,”

“When I look at the training, I think we do have good quality already with the keepers. I think we’ve been a bit unlucky at times. Often you don’t have much to do. Then if you don’t do something 100 per cent right it weighs a lot heavier than for other goalies at smaller clubs who have several more saves to make in a game.

“That’s life at a big club like Liverpool and you have to deal with it.”
