Loris Karius Makes A Big Mistake On Besiktas Debut

If Loris Karius was hoping that his move away from Liverpool would magically change everything that happened to him in the Champions League final then he was mistaken. That's been proved after his error on his Besiktas debut.

May's Champions League final will live long in the memories for a number of reasons, other than Jurgen Klopp constantly being asked about Sergio Ramos, but perhaps most famously for Loris Karius' mistakes.

The Liverpool goalkeeper may well have been concussed during the final but his two errors in allowing Karim Benzema to score the first and Gareth Bale to score the third, sandwiching Bale's ridiculous first, were to blame for the Reds' loss to Real Madrid.


Those errors, added to ones in pre season, led Jurgen Klopp to go out and break the world record fee for a goalkeeper by signing Roma's Alisson, of course Chelsea would break that record just weeks later.

That transfer led Karius to leave the club with Turkish side Besiktas signing him on a two year loan deal but life in the Super Lig hasn't started too well.

He was partially at fault for Bursaspor's 86th minute goal in the 1-1 draw with Besiktas on Sunday:

Former Real Madrid defender, and red card machine, Pepe certainly didn't help the goalie but the German's half decision to come for the ball, before stuttering, was a big mistake. Had he stayed on his line there's every chance he would have saved it.

In fairness to the former Mainz goalkeeper he did make a fantastic one-on-one save earlier in the game, before another former Liverpool player, Ryan Babel, put Besiktas 1-0 ahead:

The 25 year old can also take some heart from the fact that the heir to his spot as first choice goalkeeper at Anfield didn't exactly cover himself in glory with Alisson messing up for Leicester's goal in the 2-1 win for Liverpool.

It seems you can take the goalkeeper out of Liverpool but you can't take the Liverpool out of the goalkeeper, or something.
