Turkish website Asist Analiz report Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has taken legal action against Besiktas over his unpaid wages.
It’s claimed the Black Eagles informed Karius they cannot pay his wages due to the Coronavirus outbreak, despite an agreement about restructuring being reached between the two sides earlier.
Asist Analiz say Karius has approached FIFA about the situation as he’s looking to terminate his contract with Besiktas.
They report the German goalkeeper is now likely to leave Besiktas before the end of the season, and even if the Turkish Super Lig restarts after the outbreak he won’t be picked.
Speaking about the situation, TRT Spor’s journalist Firat Gunayer said the Super Lig side have informed Karius he can terminate his contract if he gives up his unpaid wages, but this was rejected by the 26 year old.
Gunayer added that despite there being no agreement between the two sides, it’s very likely that Karius will leave the club soon.
Karius has had similar troubles with Besiktas in the past, but those issues were resolved. However, this time things could be different as the Istanbul club are in deep financial trouble due to Covid-19 spreading in Turkey.
