Footage Shows Marco Asensio Shouting 'Karius' To David De Gea

Iker Casillas criticised himself to support Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius after a torrid start to pre-season. He posted a video compilation of his own errors on Twitter to echo that everyone makes mistakes.

"Behind each one of us, there is one person." he said. "Let him raise his hand who has not ever failed. Learning from our mistakes will make us stronger and accept them more human."

It was a touch of class from the former Real Madrid goalkeeper, but another Los Blancos player has hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons, this morning.

Footage has emerged of Marco Asensio mocking Loris Karius after their defeat to Manchester United in pre-season, this week.

You can clearly hear the Spaniard call international teammate, David de Gea, 'Karius' following his mistakes at the World Cup.

It took 205 minutes for Spain's number one, and arguably the best goalkeeper in world football, David de Gea, to make his first save at this summer's tournament. Before the 27-year-old made that save, he faced a total of four shots on target in the opening three games and made zero saves.

The 2010 World Cup winners were tipped by many to go all the way. But, days prior to kicking-off their Russian adventure, crisis hit the Spanish camp.

Asensio has since been criticised for his actions in the tunnel, with plenty reacting on social media after the footage emerged:
