Shocking: Klopp Receives Warning From Liverpool Legend, Drop This Player And You Will Lose All
Liverpool legend Dietmar Hamann has warned Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp against dropping under-pressure goalkeeper Loris Karius. The 23-year-old, who replaced Simon Mignolet as Klopp’s first-choice keeper earlier this season, is facing widespread criticism for his costly error in his side’s 4-3 defeat at Bournemouth last weekend which allowed Nathan Ake to score a stoppage-time winner.
The likes of Jamie Carragher, Gary Neville have blasted the German custodian after the error. However, Hamman has insisted Klopp to stick with Karius to bring the best out of him. Goalkeeping has always been an area of concern for the Red Devils ever since Pepe Reina quit the Anfield in 2014. Simon Mignolet made a series of blunders last season and things have still not improved. But Hamman has said that dropping Karius will destroy him.
Writing in his column for the for Paddy Power, Hamman wrote: “There’s been a lot of questions about the goalkeeping position at the club, but you have to stick with Loris Karius. The fourth Bournemouth goal was a bad mistake and he should really have stopped the second one as well. But if you take Karius out of the team now you destroy him. But there is no doubt he needs to settle down and up his performances.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Karius will have a chance to make amends for their poor show last week when the Reds welcome West Ham United on Sunday. Jurgen Klopp’s men are currently third in the league with 30 points and will look to keep up the pace with Arsenal and Chelsea.
