Klopp impressed with Karius on Liverpool return

TOPSHOT- Liverpool's German goalkeeper Loris Karius reacts during the UEFA Champions League final football match between Liverpool and Real Madrid at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev Ukraine

Loris Karius has much to prove this summer and he has guaranteed the spotlight will remain on him for the foreseeable future after his mistake led to a Tranmere goal in Liverpool's latest friendly. That's how concussions are. He appreciates the difficulty Wilson will have in dislodging star men Sadio Mane and Mo Salah, but is aware of the need for options in wide areas this season, particularly ones who have a goalscoring record such as his. If that's not possible then we will weigh up the options and go from there.

Until he has a few fantastic games, you can not change that.

"I am concentrating on doing well every day in training and hoping that first team opportunities will come", he said.

The goalkeeper had been elbowed by Sergio Ramos prior to his first mistake, and tests after the final found that he displayed 26 of the 30 signs of concussion.

"No-one likes that goal but if we talk about the second goal I think it was Millie's (James Milner's) fault together with (Pedro) Chirvella".

"He was influenced by that knock, that is 100 per cent".

"That's always important, that's what analysis should be: you explain why things happen". What the rest of the world is making of it, I don't care.

"Now Loris concedes that goal but we can not start the story always after each mistake".

Fabinho made his first start for his new club when he helped the Reds to claim a thumping 7-0 over Chester in their first pre-season game over the weekend.

They open their Premier League campaign on August 12 when they host West Ham United at Anfield.
