Karius joined the Reds from Mainz in the summer on 24 May 2016 for around £4 million and replaced Simon Mignolet as the club's first-choice keeper after recovering from a hand injury in September of 2016.
Karius picked the injury during a pre-season clash with Chelsea when he punched his teammate Dejan Lovren while trying to clear the ball. He said to Liverpool official site:
“I don’t know if it is going to be a week or however long [before I am back in full training], I just need to see how it feels. But I can now start using my hands and catch balls. It’s up to me now, basically.
Moreover, he added:
“We’re ahead of schedule because in total it’s been about five weeks [since the injury] I think, but I don’t want to rush it too much. Now I am in the last stages, I just want to feel good and confident about it, that it’s all done.
Some high-profile mistakes in PL matches led to a recall Belgium’s Mignolet in December of 2016 for Premier League action, but Karius was named in the side that was held to a goalless draw with Plymouth Argyle at Anfield in the FA Cup on 8th January 2017.
He was dropped in December of 2016 when manager Jurgen Klopp said he wanted to take him "out the firing line" but he also predicted: "He will bounce back."
The German boss said:
"Karius has a lot of things that other goalkeepers want to have. We want to develop the players - we don't want to convince people that he's not bad.
Moreover, he added:
"I know him really well and he's much better than he has been in the last two games. It's a situation which Liverpool have as a long-term project."
Loris Karius signed the five-year contract with Liverpool FC with the salary of £15K per week and has a long career ahead.
