David De Gea Was Once Called "Karius" By Real Madrid's Marco Asensio In Tunnel

Back in 2018, 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 hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons shortly afterwards.

Footage emerged of Marco Asensio mocking Loris Karius after their defeat to Manchester United in a pre-season clash in 2018.

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 de Gea to make his first save at that summer's tournament and before the 27-year-old made that save, he faced a total of four shots on target in the opening three games, making no saves.

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