Police investigating death threats against Liverpool’s Loris Karius after Champions League defeat


Salah had also scored the goal that took Egypt to the World Cup when he netted a dramatic late penalty in a qualifier against Congo in October.

Karius has since come under heavy criticism, with hundreds of posts on social media majorly from Liverpool fans accusing the keeper of costing them the game.

"I went straight to him because you know how it feels and you try to help him and pick him up again".

The 24-year-old, inconsolable at the final whistle, has apologised to fans, while Merseyside Police are investigating "threats" made on social media to the German.

"As I said I'd just like to turn back the time but that's not possible".

The Reds' 44-goal top scorer was forced off midway through the first half of Saturday's Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid after spraining ligaments in the shoulder during a tangle with Real defender Sergio Ramos.

Liverpool shotstopper Loris Karius's errors became the decisive factor which saw Real Madrid becoming the Kings of Europe for the third successive time.

Real Madrid signed Gareth Bale in 2013 for a then record transfer fee of 100 million euros and Bale has said that there are only two clubs he wants to leave Madrid for, Manchester United or back home to Tottenham Hotspur.

But it does seem like Salah will make the World Cup next month after he said he was "confident" of making the tournament.

'It is hugely frustrating and we can't change it.

"Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game. We have lots of young players on the team now and it is mixed with players who have the experience of playing in two World Cups and it is a good mix in order to achieve the objective we have established".

"It was a big blow for the team, but we still managed to go to half-time at 0-0". We created a few possibilities to score a goal, but I think after the injury of Mo it was really hard for us.

"Ramos tried to do exactly what he did to Salah a year ago when he faced Dani Alves in the Champions League final", said one Twitter user, as arguments continue surrounding the challenge.

Merseyside Police says it is aware of death threats made to Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius after the Champions League final.
