Karius Apologises for Costly CL Final Howlers

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius apologised to “the whole club” after making two terrible mistakes in their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Madrid collected a third consecutive Champions League crown after substitute Gareth Bale struck twice from the bench in Saturday’s 3-1 triumph.

But Karius’ errors had a huge impact on the result, the German goalkeeper bizarrely throwing the ball in off striker Karim Benzema for the opening goal in Kiev.

After Bale’s brilliant bicycle-kick restored the Madrid lead following Sadio Mane’s leveller, Karius then allowed a long-range drive from the Wales international to escape his grasp, wrapping up the title for Zinedine Zidane’s men.

Karius was left in tears at the full-time whistle and he accepted responsibility for Liverpool’s defeat in Ukraine.

“I don’t feel anything right now. Today I lost my team the game,” Karius said to talkSPORT.

“I feel sorry for everyone. I’m sorry for everyone, for the team, for the whole club. The mistakes cost us dearly.”
