Loris Karius looks unrecognizable as he rebuilds after years on the Liverpool sideline

Loris Karius has no chance of making the pitch for Jurgen Klopp’s side and has spent his time in the gym lifting weights before making a free transfer in the summer

Loris Karius hasn’t played a game for Liverpool for almost four years but he’s clearly put that time to good use on the touchline as he’s seen lately Instagram Post Office.

Karius stays in Liverpool player, although he has not played for the club since his disastrous performance in the Champions League final against real Madrid in May 2018. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been away from Anfield for the last three years, on loan at Besiktas and Union Berlin but is currently back in training with the Reds.

He had been expected to leave the club on a free transfer in January but his £65,000-a-week wages proved a stumbling block to an early exit. As a result, he’s stuck in training at Kirkby, behind Alisson, Caoimhin Kelleher and Adrian – and promising young goalkeepers Marcelo Pitaluga and Harvey Davies – in Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order.

The German has at least made good use of his free time, training hard in the gym to transform his physique. Karius used to look skinny in the Liverpool goal, but his latest Instagram post features a bloated version alongside the caption “An afternoon well spent” and a strong arm emoji.

The comments tell a story, and fans react with shock at his appearance. “Wow someone [sic] was in the gym,” wrote one supporter. “Beast Bro,” added another. “He’s like the Terminator, nothing can get past him now,” joked another. “Woaahh, someone trained hard. Looks so good,” wrote another commenter.

Karius is clearly using the dead time before his Liverpool contract expires this summer to focus on the physical side of things. As he is in the last six months of his contract, he can talk to other clubs about a free transfer – and a move back to Germany seems the most likely move.

Karius made 50 appearances for Liverpool after joining from Mainz in July 2016 for £4.7million. He was the first-choice goalkeeper in the 2017/18 season but his nightmare performance in the 3-1 Champions League final against Real Madrid proved true at the end of his time with the side as Alisson arrived to take first place that summer to take up space.

WILL YOU PARTICIPATE! Will Loris Karius ever recover from his 2018 Champions League final mistake? Comment below.

Klopp spoke about Karius’ situation in January, explaining that he simply has too many goalkeepers to play his compatriot. “Loris Karius, the player who does absolutely nothing wrong, who is in really good shape, who trains very hard,” he said. “He’s committed, the goalkeeping coaches are fully committed, that’s clear.”

He added: “Before the season we made a decision. Of course it was also in the interest of the club that Loris found a new club, things like that. That didn’t happen, so fine. We have made a decision. He’ll be treated quite normally, absolutely, but we have the goalkeepers… Loris, I wish him all the best and he’ll find a club anytime – now or in the summer. And then he will continue, I’m sure of that.”
