Besiktas boss Gunes upset with 'stagnant' Karius: No motivation

Besiktas boss slams Liverpool flop Loris Karius over failed loan move

From the moment he first donned the Liverpool kit - before presumably looking in a mirror, spotting a black cat in front of him and reacting to this all by breaking the mirror - the German goalkeeper has looked more like a child who has lost in mother in Primark than a top flight goalkeeper.

Earlier on Wednesday, German outlet Bild reported that Karius had taken legal action against the club on February 20.

Goal report that "it is possible that Besiktas could be stung with a point deduction or exclusion from the Europa League".

Karius' performances in Turkey have been inconsistent and his relationship with the club's manager, Senol Gunes, is understood to be strained.

It is worth remembering that Gunes will be leaving Besiktas at the end of the season.

And which long shots stun the golfing world? He had an absolutely brutal 2nd round at the Honda Classic to miss the weekend. That Woods has turned to a coach shouldn't come as a surprise given his performance on the greens in his last two starts.

And while Gunes took his share of the blame for Karius' poor form, he questioned the German's "enthusiasm for the game", saying he has stagnated since his arrival from Liverpool. Something is wrong with his electricity, motivation, enthusiasm for the game.

"It has been like that since the beginning". He doesn't really feel a part of the team.

'Something is wrong, he has also been unlucky.

Karius infamously endured a horrific night in the 2018 Champions League Final for Liverpool, gifting Karim Benzema a freaky opening goal and then letting Gareth Bale's strike from distance slip from his grasp and into the net. "[He] is talented but it hasn't worked out and we have a problem", he added.

Karius may never recover and realise his true potential - but in the interim, the cut-throat world of Premier League football dictates that Klopp was right to let him leave rather than try and rebuild him in the middle of a title race.
