Besiktas Manager Senol Gunes Shares Brutal Assessment Of Loris Karius

Besiktas Manager Senol Gunes Shares Brutal Assessment Of Loris Karius

There is something wrong with Loris Karius. That's the assessment from Besiktas manager Senol Gunes after the German's latest mistake whilst on loan in Turkey, with things clearly not improving since he left Liverpool.

Virgil van Dijk has correctly received a lot of credit for how he has helped Liverpool turn around their fortunes when it comes to defending. The centre back's been so good some think he should win the Premier League's player of the year award.

However it's not just the Dutchman who makes a difference but also Liverpool's goalkeeper, Alisson Becker, who was signed in the summer.

Karius was clearly distraught from his mistakes in Kyiv last year and it looks like it's still affecting him 10 months on.
