Report: Klopp will block 25-year-old from returning to Liverpool this summer

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will block Besiktas’ efforts to send Loris Karius back to Anfield before the official end of his loan spell – as reported by the Mirror (22 March, page 56).

The German appeared to be on course for a stellar career in England when he moved to Liverpool from Bundesliga side Mainz 05 in the summer of 2016, in a deal which only cost around £4.7 million.

However, Karius’ time at Anfield has hardly gone according to plan and that might not change.

The 25-year-old committed several goalkeeping errors last season after moving above Simon Mignolet in the pecking order and matters got worse for him as his blunders resulted in Real Madrid beating the Reds in last term’s Champions League final.

Karius was then shipped out to Turkey for a two-year loan spell at Besiktas but the 25-year-old has even been jeered by his own fans after another string of blunders with manager Senol Gunes publicly criticizing the player.

Thus, Besiktas are looking to send the German goalkeeper back to Liverpool this summer but Klopp is expected to block that move since the player has no break clause in his contract.
