Meet Loris Karius. He's just signed for Liverpool and he's really proud to be at the club.

Karius is a goalkeeper, which is good news for Liverpool fans because they really wanted their club to sign a goalkeeper.
Here he is showing off his shirt number after signing from Mainz.
The reason why Liverpool fans were so keen to see their team sign a goalkeeper was this.
Simon Mignolet has committed the most errors that led to a goal (8) in last 3 Premier League seasons. Goalkeeping investment was essential.

Yes, everyone's had just about enough of the error-prone Simon Mignolet.
The numbers certainly suggest 22-year-old German Karius might be an upgrade.

A lot of Reds fans admitted they didn't know too much about their new signing - but they immediately spotted some things about him they like.
I've studied Loris Karius intensely, and can reveal his 3 best assets are
1 - He's not Mignolet
2 - He's not Mignolet
3 - He's not Mignolet

But has he been brought in to replace Mignolet or as competition?
Fans know what they think...
Let's all gather and rejoice to celebrate this beautiful day. May 24th the day Mignolet's replacement arrived.

Happy with Karius even though I've never seen him play just because it means Mignolet won't be starting next season

Mignolet has only just caught wind of Karius joining LFC. He then fumbled it and Jack Colback tapped it into an empty net.

Asked a former professional GK why Karius would be better than Mignolet. He told me "his spine is not made of vegan waffle batter"

Watching Karius' interview & it's the little things that set him apart from Mignolet 'I speak English, I can tell MY players what to do'

And as for Mignolet, how did he react to the news?

Cheer up Simon. It might never happen.
