Watch: Loris Karius Makes Another Goalkeeping Gaffe In Warm-Up

Watch: Loris Karius Makes Another Goalkeeping Gaffe In Warm-Up

Loris Karius made his return to action for the first time since his Champions League final horror show yesterday, playing 45 minutes in a 7-0 friendly thrashing of Chester.
