Plenty of Liverpool fans have shown little sympathy with Loris Karius after comments he made to German media regarding the 2018 Champions League final.

The goalkeeper suffered a concussion after a blow to the head from Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos and went on to make costly errors for two goals in the Reds’ 3-1 defeat in Kiev, after which he was the subject of some death threats.

Speaking to Sport Bild about that night and its aftermath, he claimed that the concussion restricted his spatial vision and felt that a lot of the post-match abuse he took was “below the belt”. He criticised those who levelled personal abuse at him following that Champions League final, insisting that the receipt of death threats was way over the top, along with pointing out how people would abuse him online but say nothing when encountering him in person.

However, these Liverpool fans on Twitter still don’t seem ready to forgive Karius over that difficult night and insist that he should have come off if he had been concussed, with some accusing him of selfishness over staying on the pitch in such circumstances:
