Loris Karius terminates his contract

Loris Karius will now immediately return to his club Liverpool as he terminated his two-year loan contract with Besiktas.

 

The German goalkeeper left Anfield in 2018 after unconvincing performance in the Champions League and he was replaced with Alisson. He signed two-year loan contract with Besiktas and he was due to return to Anfield in the end of this season.

 

However, the 26-year-old goalkeeper made an announcement that he terminated his contract via his social media accounts.


 

That came after Karius submitted a complaint to FIFA regarding that Besiktas were not paying his wages.

 

“Hi everyone,” wrote Loris Karius in his Instagram profile.

 

“Today I terminated my contract with Besiktas. It’s a shame it comes to an end like this but you should know that I have tried everything to solve this situation without any problems.

 

“I was very patient for months telling the board over and over again.


 


“Same things happened already last year. Unfortunately they haven’t tried to solve this situational problem and even refused my suggestion to help by taking a pay cut.

 

“It’s important to me that you know I really enjoyed playing for this club a lot.”


In April, FIFA started investigating Karius case as the German has intentions to sue the club over his unpaid wages.

 

Loris Karius left for Besiktas after he made two dreadful errors in the Champions League final against Real Madrid and they've cost the Reds title.


 


He spent almost two years with the Turkish club and made 67 appearances for the Super Lig side.

 

Karius still has two years remaining in his Liverpool contract, but it is more likely that he will leave the Reds this summer once the transfer window opens.
