Loris Karius: Police investigate death threats to Liverpool goalkeeper

Salah injury tweet Champions League final

Salah injury tweet Champions League final

Minutes after his introduction, the Welshman pulled off a superb bicycle-kick from the edge of the Liverpool box, leaving goalkeeper Loris Karius flat-footed.

Gareth Bale's brace atop a fortunate Karim Benzema goal helped Real Madrid to a 3-1 victory over Liverpool and their third UEFA Champions League trophy in three years.

It prompted Bailly to put aside United's rivalry with Liverpool to reply to the German stopper on Instagram.

Karius had little to do early in the game as Liverpool threatened to sweep Madrid aside in an impressive first 25 minutes.

Sadio Mane scored for the Reds but it was Loris Karius who stole the headlines after making two costly errors that effectively handed the title to Madrid.

"I'm sorry for everyone - from the team, from the whole club - that the mistakes cost dearly". Fantastic boy, first one, and of course the second one, I think it's because of the first one. Today I lost my team the game and I feel sorry for everyone. "I judged it wrong and it went in".

Champions League final: Madrid to edge Kyiv thriller
Knowing Liverpool as a club, the people I had spoken to about Liverpool also, I knew Liverpool belongs to the Champions League. Ronaldo is looking to join an esteemed group of 10 players to win five European Cups by scoring in his fourth separate final.

"Karius got in and was very consistent towards the end, we all thought Liverpool had finally solved their goalkeeping problem".

As one of the oldest members of Klopp's squad, James Milner may have felt defeat worse than others, but insisted "we had a great run in Europe beating some top teams on the way".

"There's not much I had to say", he said about facing his teammates after the game.

Real had their own injury blow with right-back Dani Carvajal having to go off, replaced by Nacho in the 37th, and ended the half with Benzema's effort being disallowed for offside after Cristiano Ronaldo's header was saved by Karius.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has since offered his sympathies to Karius, who received death threats on social media after the final in Kiev.

A Merseyside Police spokesperson told the Telegraph: "The force takes social media posts of this nature extremely seriously and any offences identified will be investigated".
