In 2018, in Kiev, Liverpool faced Real Madrid in the final match of the UEFA Champions League, a match that the English team would lose as a result of the mistakes of their goalkeeper at the time, Loris Karius.

Alisson Becker would be the new signing to replace Karius despite the club trying to mitigate the consequences of that final, even presenting diagnostic reports from a medical professional in Boston, it was claimed that Karius suffered a concussion in the game, although it was clear that the best thing would be Karius' departure from Liverpool.

His time at Besiktas

After this Liverpool loaned him out to Besiktas in Turkey, but his performance was again poor, with the goalkeeper's playing style leading to him ending up in bad form and disputes over wages. Later he was loaned out again, but this time to his home country Union Berlin, but despite being in his own country, with his own climate and his own people, Karius did not perform at his best.

For 2022 only two teams were interested in signing him, Montpellier and Basel, but Karius was unwilling to give up the contract he already had with Liverpool, even though the club thought it was the best thing to do.

Currently the sixth choice goalkeeper ahead of Alisson, Kelleher, Adrian, Marcelo Pitaluga and Harvey Davies, even Karius was no longer travelling with the team, this summer he did not receive any offers, he left Liverpool after not playing a single minute of the 2021-2022 season.
