Pundit 'can't believe' Karius latest after Liverpool update on his future

Paul Robinson “cannot believe” Loris Karius is still a Liverpool player.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one said he “would be surprised” if the 28-year-old hasn’t left the club by 31 January.

Karius is into the final six months of his contract at Anfield.

The German shot-stopper has not made the bench for a single match this season.

Speaking to The Athletic‘s James Pearce (10 January), goalkeeper coach John Achterberg said it’s up to Karius’ “agent and the club to try to find a solution.”

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Karius’ situation, Robinson said: “I can’t believe he’s still there.

“They will not get any value in selling him. He’s fourth choice now.

“He’s a player who’s gone under the radar. He has gone out on loan and has come back.

“I can’t see him having a future at Liverpool. For the rest of his career and for peace of mind he needs to leave the club. He’s got no chance in playing with the three goalkeepers that are in front of him.

“I’d be surprised if he’s still there in February even though there’s little value in Liverpool selling him.”

Karius has made 49 appearances for the Reds since joining from Mainz in July 2016.

He has spent the last two season out on loan at Besiktas and Union Berlin.
