It’s safe to say that last season wasn’t the season for Liverpool and it was up to the big man of Anfield, Jurgen Klopp, to make the strong move of replacing the fumbling fingers of fans’ scapegoat Mignolet for a confident, but equally clumsy Loris Karius.
The 22-year-old German national, who tries to make up for lack of experience by a macho show of confidence, possibly pushed himself, as well as his ego, a tad too far whilst trying to act the Mainz man against Wigan in their pre-season meeting.
