Jurgen Klopp defends under fire Loris Karius

Jurgen Klopp defends under fire Loris Karius

Divock Origi of Liverpool controls the ball during the Pre-Season Friendly match between Tranmere Rovers and Liverpool at Prenton Park on July 11, 2018 in Birkenhead, England.

Karius failed to keep hold of Ollie Norburn's freekick and Jonny Smith was quick to capitalise on the German's error to score Tranmere's first goal of the game.

And Karius managed to spill the shot, allowing it to bounce in front of him rather than taking it cleanly.

Liverpool emerged as 3-2 victors but in his second appearance since the Champions League final - when his two mistakes cost Jurgen Klopp's side - Karius made a big error.

"Yeah, it will probably happen for a while until he has a few fantastic games, that is how the situation is", said the manager.

Trump’s order for OPEC to reduce prices is insulting - Iranian oil minister
Earlier this week, Trump lashed out at OPEC, accusing the oil organization of failing to help the USA to reduce domestic gasoline prices.


While senior figures like Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have to convince Klopp that they are better value than pursuing a forward in the transfer market.

And Klopp replied: "You can all stop that immediately, promise?"

Until he has a few fantastic games, you can not change that. That's our part of the deal.

Elsewhere Klopp said that he was impressed by the performances of forwads Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge and added that he will give the duo time to show that they deserve to stay at Liverpool following respective loan spells at West Bromwich Albion and Wolfsburg last season. I liked the second half as well because although we were not that ruthless maybe, we created a lot and played good football, came in the right spaces, last third not as good as first half but it was pretty good.

"Everybody has a place [here]".
