Karius To Stay Despite Allison Arrival

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Alisson Becker will be his first-choice goalkeeper for the 2018-19 season but says Loris Karius will have another opportunity to prove his worth at Anfield.

Alisson became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper upon confirmation of his six-year deal with the Anfield club, arriving in a move worth £65 million (€73m/$85m).

The Brazil international became the club’s fourth signing of the summer transfer window, joining Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri in moving to Merseyside.

Karius has been the focus of widespread humiliation since the Kiev final and has lost his spot as Liverpool’s first-choice between the sticks as a result of Alisson’s arrival from Roma.

“We brought in Alisson and it is clear that he will be our number one,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “Otherwise, you don’t pay that kind of money.

“For Loris Karius, this transfer is not so great. When you sign the Brazilian number one you don’t tell him he has six weeks to prove himself.

“Still, we have enough matches so everybody can play. He still has the possibility to develop. He is a great keeper and he can still show that with us in the future.”
