Karius Receives Klopp Backing As Liverpool Stumble Against Bournemouth

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has backed his shot stopper Loris Karius after a shock 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth on Sunday.

loris-kariusThe loss ended Liverpool’s 15 match unbeaten run as Eddie Howe’s side recovered from 1-3 down to win a seven goal thriller at the Vitality stadium.

“He [Karius] is yet to convince me in any game,” Carragher said after the game. “It’s still early days but he would need a massive improvement.”

“No problem. If you make mistakes you get criticised,” Klopp responded. “I’m sure somebody has criticised Jamie Carragher in his career.”

karius-liverpoolKlopp then defended Karius’ role in the goal, where he initially saved Ake’s first rebounded effort, insisting he was unfortunate.

“The last goal was not a lucky situation for goalkeeper,” Klopp admitted. “Loris would have made a really decent save, this says nothing about him.”

Liverpool missed the chance to hold 2nd position as Arsenal leapfrogged them after a thumping victory over West Ham.
