Salah Backs Karius Despite Texting Alisson To Join Liverpool
Striker Mohamed Salah has thrown his weight behind Loris Karius after the goalkeeper’s apparent error saw Liverpool suffer a 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in an international club friendly game.
Karius gifted Dortmund a goal and almost cost Liverpool another, but his teammate has rallied behind him.
Salah had reportedly sent a message to his former Roma teammate, Alisson Becker, asking what he is waiting for, as negotiations entered advanced stage to bring the goalkeeper to Anfield. Becker responded that he was on his way.
Becker has finally completed a record £65m move to join Liverpool, making him the world's most expensive goalkeeper.
In his words of advise, Salah asked Karius to stay strong and not get distracted.
"Stay strong Karius, it has happened to the best of players. Ignore those who hate", he tweeted on Monday.
It has been a harrowing couple of months for Karius, which began during the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on May 26 in Kiev.
Two second-half mistakes resulted in Madrid goals and handed them their 13th European crown, before it was subsequently revealed that he had suffered a concussion shortly before the first error.
