Everyone is making fun of this social media post Loris Karius made last week

It is fair to say Loris Karius had a night to forget

Liverpool’s Champions League final against Real Madrid did not have the fairy tale ending they hoped for. Mo Salah went off injured in the first half, but the sides were still even after 45 minutes.

But things only got worse for Liverpool from there. A lot worst. First, Liverpool goalkeeper conceded one of the weirdest goal in Champions League final history. With Karius looking to roll the ball out to one of his teammates, Benzema stuck out a foot in the faint hope it might intercept the throw. It not only did that, it diverted it into the empty goal.

Sadio Mane went on to equalise for Liverpool, but then Gareth Bale helped Real retake the lead with a wonderful overhead kick.

Then Karius made another howler, failing to keep hold of a Gareth Bale long shot.

Needless to say, Lois Karius was not the hero many Liverpool fans were looking for.

And while he was being rinsed on social media, people dug out this tweet he posted a week ago.

It is too perfect – the deadly serious expression, the caption, the spelling mistake. Needless to say, he is getting destroyed for it.

Poor Loris.
