Karius ready to battle Alisson for No 1 spot

Karius ready to battle Alisson for No 1 spot

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius says he is ready to battle Alisson Becker for the No 1 spot at Anfield. 

Last month Karius ended his stay at Besiktas after terminating his contract with the Turkish club due to unpaid wages. The 26-year-old was in the second year of his deal and had managed to make 30 appearances for Besiktas before the season was suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

"Of course I have to be playing if I actually change clubs. It makes no sense to say I'm leaving Liverpool for a worse club and I'm only the number two there. But I'm not in a pressured situation at all, I don't have to change," he told Transfermarkt.

"I can accelerate in training at Liverpool. As the second goalkeeper in England, you know that you get your chances. I am currently at the best club in the world, who are competing for titles, and I have the highest level around me every day in training."

"I am fully aware that I am in a good position to be at Liverpool. I have great conditions there."

Karius is attracting interest from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.
