Loris Karius Makes Another Massive Blunder During Friendly Against Tranmere
It goes from bad to worse for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.
The 25-year-old has produced yet another embarrassing error during a friendly against Tranmere on Tuesday evening, fumbling a free-kick to hand Jonny Smith a tap in from close range.

Karius, who made his return to action for the first time since his Champions League final horror show last week, playing 45 minutes in a 7-0 friendly thrashing of Chester, has been criticised in recent weeks.
And this gaffe in Liverpool's second pre-season tie has not helped his cause as fans continue to cast doubts.

Liverpool might have come out victorious in a close 3-2 victory, but Karius' mistake in the second half has been the biggest talking point as Jurgen Klopp prepares for the start of the 2018/19 Premier League season.
Fans are doubting whether the German shot-stopper will be able to bounce back from his errors during the Champions League final.

If anything, this game should signal the end of Loris Karius' chances of being number one. We need a new goalkeeper.- Matt (@FalseFirmino) July 10, 2018
What we've just seen from Karius is an indication that he hasn't bounced back from his major errors. I thought it was likely he wouldn't but was willing to wait and give him another chance. It's clear he's shattered by the final and this preseason error will only pressure more- Indigo :ideograph_advantage: (@IndigoLFC) July 10, 2018
Really hope we don't go into the new season with Karius as the main Keeper. He is terrible. Blind loyalty & faith in him will end in tears and will 100% come back to bite us on the backside. He simply isn't good enough & never will be. New Goalkeeper please @LFC- Jay Riley (@TheKopHQ) July 10, 2018
Just seen that Karius has made another mistake in a pre season friendly tonight, guess he must still have concussion.- MR DT :copyright: (@MrDtAFC) July 10, 2018
I don't like being a twat to a Liverpool player, but just get it done. Bring in Schmeichel or someone. It's obvious we can't begin the campaign with Karius as no.1. Mindbogglingly obvious. Wish the lad well but it's not going to work with us.- Empire of the Kop (@empireofthekop) July 10, 2018
Does Jurgen Klopp need to make a move in the transfer window to replace Karius or should he continue to put his faith in the German?
