Loris Karius: Mohamed Salah posts message of support to Liverpool keeper

Loris Karius joined Liverpool from Mainz in 2016

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has told team-mate Loris Karius to "ignore those who hate" after more criticism following his latest pre-season match.

Karius, 25, was blamed for Borussia Dortmund's third goal in their 3-1 victory over the Reds, having made a mistake at Tranmere earlier this month.

In May, the German made two high-profile errors in the Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid.

"Stay strong Karius, it has happened to the best of players," wrote Salah.external-link

"To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you," he wrote.

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

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has defended Karius, but warned the goalkeeper will continue to be criticised until "he has a few fantastic games".

The Reds have strengthened their goalkeeping options this summer with the acquisition of Brazilian Alisson from Roma.
