Liverpool's Loris Karius thanks fans for warm reception in friendly

Liverpool vs Torino friendly

Liverpool vs Torino friendly

Despite opening their Premier League campaign against West Ham on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp named a strong team and was rewarded by seeing key players get valuable game time.

Alongside of a clip of his entrance to the match, he tweeted: "Thank you Anfield for this reception!".

The striker featured in the Reds' 3-1 friendly victory over Torino on Tuesday but has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Following the horror showing, the club had hoped Karius would return to the pre-season full of confidence, but after two errors during the Reds' pre-season tour, the Reds opted to smash the club transfer record for Brazillian shot-stopper Alisson Becker. Brazil's number one, who impressed with his performances at the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, will take over the gloves from Loris Karius, who made two mistakes in the Reds' Champions League final defeat.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed one major regret from this summer's transfer window after what looked a very successful preparation for the new season.

After signing goalkeeper Alisson for £65 million last month, Klopp had said he thought the Brazilian would be Liverpool's last signing of the summer.

Klopp swapped seven of his starting lineup at half time and the intensity of Liverpool's second-half performance inevitably suffered. Granted, his rivals will know how the Reds play but it is nearly impossible to stop when they're on song.

"He was in a really good shape, so we thought a few minutes tonight should be possible". I really liked his pre-season.

This lead to Karius being the subject of a wave of abuse on social media, some of it going way past the typical football jokes you would see after the games, with death threats amongst several vicious messages targeted at the German goalkeeper. "It was a really big gesture".
