Loris Karius was born on 22 June 1993 in Biberach an der Riss, Germany. His career started in the Stuttgart team. Later in 2009, he joined Manchester City. From 2009 to 2011, the young footballer played in the second team of Manchester City. Karius made his official debut in the Bundesliga for Mainz 05 on 1 December 2012, when he came on as a half-time substitute for Shawn Parker after goalkeeper Christian Wetklo had been sent off.
One of the most important events in the young player’s career happened on 24 May 2016, when Karius joined legendary Liverpool. He signed a five-year transfer contract for of 6 million euro.
Loris Karius was invited as a first-choice keeper, ahead of Simon Mignolet. Liverpool team management hopes that during this season Karius will manage to prove his skills and join the first eleven instead of the talented but very temperamental Belgian goalkeeper.
Loris Karius is very different from Simon Mignolet – mainly in his way of thinking. The German player is always calm and in control. Loris has everything he needs to become leading player in the high-class club. It should be noted that none other than Thomas Tuchel offered Karius to play in the first team for Mainz.
Loris Karius selected the number 1 jersey, which proves his purely serious intentions and ambitions in Liverpool. Time will show whether the goalkeeper from Biberach an der Riss will manage to become number one or not.
