Loris Karius Receives Incredible Standing Ovation During Pre-Season Friendly
It's been a tough few weeks for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius and things are going from bad to worse for the German goalkeeper, just days after he fumbled a free-kick to hand Tranmere's Jonny Smith a tap in from close range.
Karius' Champions League final horror show has somewhat hampered his progress at Anfield but he was immediately thrown into the first team when he played 45 minutes in a 7-0 friendly thrashing of Chester last week, but was rarely tested.
Then 'that' fumble against Tranmere happened, which didn't help his cause as fans continue to cast doubts.
Just days later, it looks like Liverpool fans still have belief in Karius, even if it is just a pre-season friendly against League One side Bury.
A number of sources on Twitter originally claimed that the German shot-stopper was jeered when he touched the ball in the first half, which could have severely effected his confidence as the 2018/19 Premier League season approaches.
If Karius was hoping people would quickly forget his Tranmere howler he's sadly mistaken. Jeers as he (comfortably) controls a long ball arriving at speed.

One Twitter user said: "Karius getting jeered by our own fans doesn't sit well with me. But that's just me until he stops wearing the shirt then support as always." while another said: "These so called fans are just muppets of the highest order!"
But a video soon emerged of him receiving a massive standing ovation.
He's clearly lacking confidence but some Liverpool fans still have faith in the shot-stopper.
