Despite his doubters though, the majority of Anfield have delivered an incredible amount of support for the German shot-stopper.
During Tuesday night's friendly against Italian side Torino, the Anfield crowd stood and applauded the 25-year-old as he was subbed on for the most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Alisson.

Liverpool managed to record another comfortable win thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Georginio Wijnaldum, but the reception towards Karius, who has suffered a torrid few months, was by far the best moment of the game.
This one might give you goosebumps. What a moment for the German, uploaded by Twitter user Nic Mason.
