Loris Karius’ bid for a clean slate at Besiktas started off on a disastrous note after his late error cost his new club a win on his debut

The German goalkeeper has signed a two-year loan deal with Besiktas, which will become permanent in 2020.

Karius made the move to Turkey after losing his place in the Liverpool squad to new £67m arrival Alisson Becker from AS Roma following his two harmful errors in last season’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Moving to Besiktas was supposed to give Karius a much needed clean slate.

And Marca reports that things started well in his Super Lig debut after denying Allano at 0-0 with an excellent one-on-one stop.

Then Ryan Babel, a former Liverpool player himself, put Besiktas into the lead in the 80th minute.

However, after being booked for taking his time over a goal kick, things then began to take a dark turn for Karius.

The 25-year-old misjudged a cross with fatal consequences in the 86th minute to allow Diafra Sakho to score an equaliser from Yusuf Erdogan’s cross.

The match ended at 1-1 between the sides.

Besiktas are in 7th place in the Super Lig after four games.
