Loris Karius’ agent has dismissed speculation the goalkeeper’s two-year loan deal at Besiktas is on the verge of collapsing.
Karius made two mistakes that helped Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in May’s Champions League final in Kiev and found himself loaned out to Besiktas.
The German shot-stopper initially threw the ball against the back of striker Karim Benzema, which left the Frenchman with an easy tap in to give Zinedine Zidane's men the lead.
Then, after Sadio Mane had equalised for the Reds and Gareth Bale restored Madrid's lead with a wonder goal, Karius was guilty of fumbling the Welshman's long-range shot into the back of his net.
A catastrophic final performance from the 'keeper, and that all-but ended his career at Anfield.
Karius' time at Besiktas has been just as eventful, with several errors being well documented given his performance in the Champions League final, and recently, it's been said that the Turkish side want to terminate his loan already.
Reports emerged in recent days suggesting the Turkish club were looking to end the loan in January, sending him back to England, but his agent Florian Goll claimed that was not the case.
“Complete nonsense,” Goll said in quotes reported by Four Four Two.
“I wonder where such things come from. This news is absolutely untrue.
“Loris is on loan to Besiktas for two years – that’s the situation.
"The club has no intention of ending this loan contract prematurely.
“It’s fact that Loris is the clear number one at Besiktas, he played every game and showed good performances.”
Karius appeared to have his own say on the rumours in a since-deleted Instagram post from Tuesday evening. On a picture of himself drinking coffee, he added the caption: “Coffee first, media’s bulls*** second”.
