Jurgen Klopp recently admitted he was pleasantly surprised by the reception of Loris Karius received before their last game with Chester.

The eventual 7-0 thrashing of Chester FC was Karius’ first appearance after the brutal mistakes he made in the final of the Champions League against Real Madrid, which the Reds lost.

Klopp has promised to give him a fresh start and that was received by fans as well as they applauded his comeback.

“I am not sure I should have expected something different but the reception for Lori was nice,” Klopp said, according to Liverpool Echo.

“It was a difficult save but he made that and it looked good and the high ball he took, it was difficult.”

“Many goalkeepers would have dropped it and then everyone would have been ‘Oh that happened’ and it starts again.”

“I need to cool down the whole situation. We just need to play football and work on our weaknesses, use our strengths and everything will be good,” Klopp went on to add.
