Loris Karius has shared that he believed in everything manager Jurgen Klopp was telling him before he joined Liverpool.
The 23-year-old shot stopper made the switch to Anfield from Bundesliga side Mainz in the summer and has established himself as the club’s number one ahead of Simon Mignolet.
He has now spoken of the “easy decision” he made to make the move, while also stating that he knew Klopp would change a lot in the side from their “very good conversation.”
“When I heard that Klopp wanted me, I was very excited because I felt it as a great honor after all that I’ve been through,” said Karius to Bild. “I’ve already seen Liverpool like many in Germany before, who wanted to know how Klopp is in the Premier League.
“I knew he (Klopp) would change a lot in the summer and that it would set Liverpool in motion. I believed in everything he told me. We had a very good conversation, and in the end it was a decision that was easy for me. ”
Karius has made seven appearances for the club this campaign after he received an injury in pre-season, which delayed his debut for Klopp’s team.
However, his performances have received questions from fans after conceding six goals in those appearances and looking like a mistake waiting to happen in goal.
The Reds are currently sat at the top of the Premier League table, but their goals against record hasn’t improved with 14 goals conceded from 11 fixtures, which is the worst of the top seven.
