Mo Salah Offers Public Support To Under-Fire Liverpool Teammate Loris Karius

Liverpool forward Mo Salah has advised under-fire goalkeeper Loris Karius to ignore public criticism in the wake of the latest barrage of abuse.

Karius has been the target of intense criticism from a section of Liverpool fans in the aftermath of his errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May. The Twitter abuse has only been made worse in pre-season, as a result of the goalkeeper making several mistakes in Liverpool’s recent friendly matches.

Karius took the step of directly responding to the critics on a (now deleted) Instagram post after the Reds’ friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Sunday night.

Salah, taking to Twitter on Monday, offered his public support of Karius amid a troubling period of the 25-year-old’s Anfield career:

Karius’ Liverpool future has been thrown into doubt recently with the club moving quickly to sign Brazilian international Alisson for a fee that could rise to £65m.

Reports on Monday suggested that the former Mainz man may look to move on this summer – but with Danny Ward already having departed, one of Karius and Simon Mignolet may have to stay at Anfield and act as Alisson’s understudy for the upcoming season.
