Klopp: Karius concussion explains his mistakes

Loris Karius

The Welshman is keen to impress Jurgen Klopp during pre-season to earn himself a place in the Liverpool squad for the upcoming campaign and with some of the Reds established stars still away due to their World Cup exploits, Wilson has every chance to catch the manager's eye. So, from this point of view, from my side everything is fine.

"After four days I got a call from Franz Beckenbauer, [Germany's] Bobby Moore, our biggest football player who is a good friend of mine", Klopp told the club's official website.

'He called me and said he came from a doctor, he told me: 'your goalkeeper had a concussion'.

'He was influenced by that knock, that is 100 per cent.

Goalkeeper is an area which fans want strengthening but Klopp seems set to continue with Loris Karius, who made two costly mistakes in the Champions League final even though it was later revealed he was suffering from concussion.

However, Karius proved he was desperate to remain in Klopp's plans as he appeared in the Reds' opening pre-season friendly against Chester FC on Saturday.

Fans in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland can watch the whole match live on LFCTV or LFCTV GO, while supporters across the rest of the world can watch live on LFCTV GO. That was, for me, the explanation and I thought: 'OK, come on, we need to check that'. It's really not important what the people say. Of course I wanted them to win the Champions League and I'm disappointed they never (did) but when you look at the big picture - and the journey they are on - it is a very exciting time being part of this Liverpool set-up. We do not use it as an excuse.

A total of 26 players returned to the club on Monday for the start of the preseason, but Salah and Mane have been granted an extended break following their participation in the World Cup.

Klopp launched a passionate defence of Karius last week as he suggested that he would be willing to stick with the goalkeeper as his number one next term.

"The easy thing to do is put a cross through his name and bin him but you have to remember he took Liverpool to the Champions League final".
