Besiktas goalkeeper Loris Karius is once again dominating the sport headlines in Turkey following the club’s Europa League clash with Norwegian side Sarpsborg.
The Liverpool loanee was at fault, at least according to some, for both Sarpsborg’s goals but the Turkish side eventually won the match 3-2.
Turkish newspaper Takvim has criticised the goalkeeper’s performances and they’ve used the headline ‘Karius madness once again.’
This has opened up suggestions the German keeper could return to Liverpool at the end of the season if his form doesn’t improve.
Gunes Besiktas reporter Safak Malatya has explained the agreement Besiktas has with Liverpool: “There’s no mandatory clause on Karius contract. The agreement is two-year loan deal. Besiktas have the option to cancel or extend the deal at the end of the season. There’s also no clause in the contract for the future sale. The thing is, Besiktas have the total control over the loan deal.”
Karius was sent out on loan to Besiktas in the last transfer window and it was hoped he could find his confidence after the mistakes he made in the Champions League final in May.
However, his move to the Istanbul club hasn’t gone to plan and he was recently dropped from the starting line up.
With Liverpool having Allison and Simon Mignolet at their disposal it seems Karius doesn’t have a future with the Premier League club and he may have a decision to make next year.
