Loris Karius has responded to his critics after making yet another error in Liverpool‘s 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup.

The German fumbled Christian Pulisic’s shot in stoppage time which led to Jacob Bruun scoring Dortmund’s third goal of the game.

Karius’ performances have come under scrutiny ever since the Champions League final against Real Madrid where he made two major errors that led to the Reds’ 3-1 loss.

He lashed out to his ‘haters’ in an Instagram story, saying: “To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you.

“Whatever it is that is happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you.”

And while Jurgen Klopp might have to the 25-year old’s rescue quite a few times now, it was former Los Blancos and Spain’s World Cup winning goalkeeper Iker Casillas who leapt to Karius’ defence after the pre-season game.

“This attack on Loris Karius, will it ever end? I’m talking about him like so many other goalkeepers,” Casillas wrote on Twitter.

“There are many more serious problems in the world… f***!

“Leave the kid alone. He is also a person. As we all are!”
