Loris Karius struck again when he made a clanger for Besiktas who then went on to fall to a shock defeat to Swedish side FC Malmo.
The Liverpool goalkeeper who is with the Turkish giants on a two-year-loan deal from the Reds was at fault for the first of the two goals they fell to, misjudging a cross which then took a deflection and went into the net.
The German goalkeeper came under serious fire in May as he was seen as a major reason Liverpool were unable to win the Champions League, making two costly errors in the game which ultimately culminated in a Liverpool defeat.
His manager, Jurgen Klopp, later admitted that he didn’t have the words to say to him after the game, “I am a strong supporter of the idea of just shutting up if you don’t have the right words,” Klopp told Sport1.
“And other than a few comforting words I did not have the right words. I did not have a clue what you could say.”
The latest clanger by Karius is unlikely to do his confidence any good as he is in very real danger of being labeled as an error-prone keeper.
Feel bad for Loris Karius. Not having a good time by the looks of this https://t.co/X21W02oCHx

He did keep a clean sheet in Besiktas’ last game against Kayserispor which the Turkish side won 2-0.
