Nightmare performance as the German was at fault for two goals in the 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid albeit one tempered by the fact he suffered a concussion left him with a near insurmountable task. So much so that Liverpool paid a world-record transfer fee of £65 million for Roma goalkeeper Alisson.
And Karius has now been allowed to leave and rebuild his career in the Turkish Super Lig side after agreeing a two-year loan to Besiktas.
Karius was named on the bench for Liverpool’s Premier League opener, a 4-0 defeat of West Ham, but was omitted from the squad for Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace and Saturday’s win against Brighton and Hove Albion.
He made 49 appearances for Liverpool after arriving from Mainz in 2016.
“Everybody at LFC wishes Loris the best of luck during his loan spell,” read a Liverpool statement.
