Loris Karius is determined to prove himself worthy of the chance Jürgen Klopp has given him to be Liverpool’s regular goalkeeper.
After continuing his role between the posts in the cup competitions for the Anfield victory over Everton, the German was selected again when Manchester City visited in the Premier League last weekend.
On the day, the manager confirmed that the position is the 24-year-old’s to retain, stating: “Usually I could say it’s a decision for today but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the goal.”
Karius was naturally encouraged by those words, of course, but is conscious of the need to repay Klopp’s faith in him with a series of consistent displays.
“Now you are back in goal you have to prove yourself and show how good you are to stay No.1 in the long-term, not just for the moment, to prove maybe I’m the long-term No.1 that can be in goal here for Liverpool for years to come,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“But that’s far ahead. So, for right now I just want to help the team in the remaining four months of the season to reach our goals and do well.”
