Iker Casillas makes compilation of his worst career errors in support of Loris Karius
Former Spain and Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas is driving support for embattled Liverpool shot-stopper Loris Karius
The Liverpool number one has made a string of errors following his nightmare performance in Liverpool's 3-1 Champions League final loss to Real Madrid in May.
The arrival of Brazilian international Alisson Becker from Roma could see Karius forced out of the club but Iker Casillas has rallied around the 25-year-old and pleaded for sympathy with the German's current predicament.
Este ataque a @LorisKarius va a terminar alguna vez? Hablo de él como tantos otros guardametas. Hay muchos más problemas serios en el mundo joder! Dejar al chaval en paz! También es persona. Como lo somos todos!

The Spanish international tweeted from his official Twitter account:
"Will this attack onever end? I'm talking about him like so many other goalkeepers. There are many more serious problems in the world. Fuck! Leave the Kid alone! He's also a person. As we all are!"
The 2010 World Cup winner then followed up his original tweet with another message on Tuesday which contained an attached link showing some of the worst blunders from his otherwise impeccable professional career.
Detrás de cada uno de nosotros, hay una persona. Que levante la mano quien no haya fallado alguna vez. Aprender de nuestros errores nos hará más fuertes y aceptarlos más humanos. #yotambienfallo pic.twitter.com/jwLOdicfTh

Casillas wrote: "Behind each one of us, there is one person. Let him raise his hand who has not ever failed. Learning from our mistakes will make us stronger and accept them more human."
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said that the situation between Karius and Becker at the club is not perfect but added that there is still some time left in the transfer market to arrange a possible move away from Anfield.
"Of course it's not perfect for me, but I cannot say much more about it either,” he said. “I do not know that, I cannot say what I'm doing right now, there's still some time left [in the transfer window].”
