I’m sorry’: Liverpool’s blundering goalkeeper Loris Karius begs for forgiveness as he faces ridicule and abuse over Champions League final defeat – and shields his face as team land back home

By Dail Mail

Liverpool’s blundering goalkeeper Loris Karius was hit with a torrent of abuse last night after his two errors gifted Real Madrid a resounding Champions League victory.

In the wake of his team’s 3-1 defeat Karius ran to the sidelines and begged for forgiveness from a sea of Liverpool fans.

This morning he arrived at John Lennon Airport in Liverpool to ridicule and abuse – covering his face as he disembarked alongside his team.

The goalkeeper admitted he felt his errors cost his team the game but, despite his heartfelt apology, fans took to Twitter to attack the German 24-year-old.

‘My Liverpool boys fought hard and I’m proud of them. Except for Karius, he can die in a hole,’ wrote one Liverpool fan.

‘Hope Karius f*****g dies,’ said another appalling comment.

Some tweets called the German keeper a Nazi, while others directed vile threats towards his family.

One sickening football fan threatened: ‘Get out of our club or die.’

After the final whistle blew Karius had made his way over to the stands where he apologised to fans who had made the 1,500-mile journey to Kiev – only to see their team lose.

‘If I could go back in time, I would. I feel sorry for my team. I know I let them down,’ he said in the wake of the match.

‘It’s very hard right now but that’s the life of a goalkeeper. These goals cost us the title, basically.’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists Karius will deal with his calamitous night.

‘I have only had very few words [with Karius] after the game but there’s nothing to talk about in the moment,’ he said.

‘It’s really hard for him. Nobody wants that. The mistakes were obvious. We don’t have to talk about them. He knows it, I know it, you all know it.
