Liverpool’s summer signing Loris Karius has thanked the clubs fans for their support after returning to first-team training according to the Liverpool Echo.
Per-the-source, Karius has revealed that he is eager to make his Liverpool debut after joining from the Bundesliga side Mainz for £5 million. The 23-year-old returned to first-team training after having the wire support from his injured right hand removed last week.
“People have recognised me at the traffic lights, when I’m having lunch or things like that and it’s really nice to see because they’re all just wishing you the best and a good recovery,” Karius was quoted as saying by Liverpool’s official website.
“It’s nice to hear from people and to know they care about you.
“It’s a very good feeling, especially as I am new to the club and haven’t been able to show them that much yet, but they are already supporting me like this.
“It’s nice to see they don’t forget about you and they stand behind you and want you to come back soon. I think that’s very good for any player, not just for me. It helps a lot.”
However, the German keeper may need to be patient seeing that Jurgen Klopp’s first choice keeper is currently Simon Mignolet. The Belgium international is expected to retain him place in the starting line-up this weekend.
Liverpool take on last seasons Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday. The Reds will be looking to return to winning ways following a defeat to Burnley and a draw with Tottenham. Leicester come into this weekends clash having recorded their first win of the season over Swansea City.
