Loris Karius reveals nobody at Liverpool told him they were signing Allison from Roma for £67m

LORIS KARIUS has revealed he was in the dark about the arrival of Alisson from Roma and admits his Liverpool future is uncertain.

Alisson moved to Anfield this month for £67million, a world record fee for a goalkeeper and is nailed on to be Jurgen Klopp’s first choice this season.

After a string of blunders last season including his howler in Champions League final, Karius has started pre-season badly letting in soft goals in games against Tranmere and Borussia Dortmund.

The German keeper admits things are not ideal for him, knowing he will be set for a lengthy spell on the bench if he stays at Liverpool.

Speaking after the defeat to Dortmund on Sunday he said:“Of course, that’s not ideal for me, but at the moment I cannot say much more about that.”

Asked if he was informed of the Brazilian’s arrival, Karius replied:“Nobody spoke to me beforehand.”

The 25-year-old joined the Kop from Mainz for £4.7m two years ago and claims he has no idea what his future holds.

He continued: “I do not know at the moment.

“I cannot say what I’m doing right now, there’s still some time left.”

Shortly after Liverpool’s 3-1 defeat to Dortmund in Charlotte in the International Champions Cup on Sunday, Karius took to social media to hit back at his critics.

He said on Instagram : “To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you.

“Whatever it is that is happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you.”

Team-mate Mohamed Salah tweeted support, posting:”Stay strong Karius, it has happened to the best of players. Ignore those who hate.@LorisKarius”.
