Is Karius’ Stunning New Fitness Model Girlfriend Pamela, The Reason Behind His Resurgence In Form?
Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has grabbed the headlines again but this time for matters off the field.
The German footballer has started dating the sizzling and hot social media fitness guru Pamela Reif.
According to reports, Karius has been dating the stunning blonde Instagram icon since November.
The 23-year-old German goalkeeper recently broke up with his former girlfriend, German fashion model Annelie Alpert, 22, after a two-year long relationship.
His new girlfriend Reif, has more than 2.7 million followers on social media, where she uploads snaps and videos of her perfect curves and also promotes her own personal fitness website.
An unnamed friend of the couple told The Sun: “It is still at an early stage.”
Reif has a huge fan following in Germany and is one of the country’s most popular social media personalities.
She said: “I love to motivate and inspire people all over the world.”
Reif started uploading snaps and videos on social media during her teenage days and now her selfies and fitness videos garner more viewers than German footballers such as Thomas Mueller.
She is among the top five online German celebrities and only Mario Gotze and Mesut Ozil have more followers than her.
Reif said: “I get an incredible amount of feedback. People write me that they started with sport because of me. Guys tell me that their girlfriends started training with me because they love me.”
Karius had joined Liverpool last summer from Bundesliga side Mainz 05 for a transfer fee of £4.7million and replaced Simon Mignolet between the sticks.
He started his debut Premier League campaign on a positive note but midway he drew huge criticism for his blunder which led to Liverpool’s 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth in the earlier half of the season.
Later he was also under the scanner after his mistake in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with West Ham and faced the axe in December, when Reds boss Jurgen Klopp insisted that he wanted to keep him “out the firing line” but accentuated that he would bounce back.
And now Karius saved Liverpool from suffering more embarrassment during their 1-0 defeat to Southampton in the EFL Cup semi-final first-leg clash.
It could have been worse for Liverpool but Karius proved his mettle after making a number of incredible saves.
Klopp said: “Loris was good, he saved us.
“If we had lost three or four-nil then it would be much more difficult in the second game. He kept us in the game.”
“It was his job, I’m not too surprised that he did it.”
“But if a goalkeeper has to make saves like this then something else is wrong in the game. That was our problem.”
