Karius's Endless Calvary

Everything points to Liverpool trying to sell him at the end of the year to get rid of his high record. In Berlin, the Union is not willing to continue assuming it.


Loris Karius' fortunes have not changed in the Bundesliga. The German goalkeeper, who is still fondly remembered by Real Madrid due to his unfortunate performance in the Whites' Champions League final against Liverpool in 2018, fails to become the starting goalkeeper for the Berlin Union. This past weekend he was under sticks again due to an injury to Andreas Luthe, Berlin's first goalkeeper, but everything points to the Union not extending the loan of Karius, still owned by Liverpool.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper replaced Luthe in the 69th minute after a collision with an opposing player and ended the game against Borussia Mönchengladbach without conceding a goal, saving a point for Union. Of course, from the point of view of the East Berlin team coach, there is no reason to question Luthe's ownership under the sticks. "I don't know why a debate about the goal would arise now," were the words of Urs Fischer as soon as the game ended. "From my point of view, there is no discussion," he stressed.

In other words, if Luthe recovers in time he will return to the title next Saturday against Mainz, thus condemning Karius to ostracism again. His future is not looking good. Everything points to Liverpool trying to sell him definitively at the end of the season to get rid of a relatively high chip. In Berlin, the Union is not willing to continue assuming it, so the Thirteenth's jinx, little by little, will have to start looking for a team. Karius doesn't want to know any of that for now. "I clearly see myself under sticks here," he said. It is seen that his coach, no.
