Loris Karius, Liverpool’s David De Gea?

Loris Karius has had a tremendously difficult start to his Liverpool career. The 23 year old signed from Mainz has made a number of mistakes which have cost Liverpool in recent games.As a supporter of another club that dons red colors, I wouldn’t be blamed for ripping him to shreds and saying how rubbish he is, but I won’t. To the contrary, I see a little bit of our own keeper in Karius. David De Gea had an equally tough start to his time at Man United. He was scrawny and struggled under the high ball but he had undoubted quality as a shot-stopper. Sir Alex could see it and instead of hanging his young keeper out to dry, Sir Alex continued to play him and shielded him from the harsh criticism of the press. Fast forward a few years and David DeGea is arguably the best keeper in England one ...
