Liverpool fans have taken issue with what David James has said about Loris Karius

It’s been a nightmare week for Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius.

The young German stopper produced two horrendous mistakes on the biggest stage – and his Liverpool career appears to be hanging by a thread.

Karius was at fault for two goals as Real Madrid beat Jurgen Klopp’s side 3-1 in the Champions League final on Saturday night.

He was in tears on the pitch and apologised to the travelling Liverpool supporters after the full-time whistle.

Retired goalkeeper David James has weighed in with his opinion on the 24-year-old’s future.

James – who was known as ‘Calamity James’ during his time as a Liverpool player – believes Karius should be given the opportunity to “prove what a good goalkeeper he could be”.

“Yeah, he’s got time on his side for sure,” James told the Mirror. “He’s a talented goalkeeper. Unfortunately, it was a Champions League final where it didn’t quite go right for him.

“If you want to be playing in those games, you have to expect things like this. Playing for Liverpool comes with a tremendous upside, but if there is a downside, then every mistake is going to be amplified more than anyone else’s.

“I hope Karius is given an opportunity to set the record straight and prove why he was such an important buy. I hope he’s able to bounce back and prove what a good goalkeeper he could be.”

Still upset over the Champions League final defeat, Liverpool fans on social media were inclined not too agree with James’s comments.
