Liverpool goalkepper Loris Karius says nobody at the club spoke to him before they paid £56 million for goalkeeper Alisson and admitted his Anfield future is uncertain.
The arrival of Alisson from Roma — in what is the biggest-ever transfer fee for a goalkeeper means Loris Karius will no longer be considered first-choice at Anfield.
Karius has been under intense scrutiny ever since his two costly errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in May.
He returned to Liverpool this preseason but has been at fault for goals in friendlies with Tranmere Rovers and Borussia Dortmund so far this summer.
Asked by German media on Sunday about the current goalkeeping situation at Liverpool, Karius said: “Of course, that’s not ideal for me, but at the moment I cannot say much more about that.”
Probed on whether anybody at Liverpool gave him advance warning of Alisson’s signing, Karius replied: “Nobody spoke to me beforehand.”
“I do not know at the moment,” the 25-year-old said, when asked if he believes he is staying at Liverpool or looking for another club. “I cannot say what I’m doing right now, there’s still some time left.”
