Liverpool have confirmed that goalkeeper Loris Karius has once again left the club on loan. This time the German goalkeeper has joined Bundesliga side Union Berlin. Karius joined Liverpool four seasons ago from FSV Mainz and was sent away on loan when the club signed Alisson Becker two summers ago. He spent some time on loan at Turkish club Besiktas, but that spell ended poorly over unpaid wages.
He returned to Liverpool this summer and joined the team on their training camp in Austria. However, the club has now confirmed that Karius has joined Union on loan. “I’m looking forward to my new opportunity in Berlin and I’m happy to be playing in the Bundesliga again,” Karius told the website of his new club.
“Union is a special club, one that has earned a great deal of respect, not just by promotion to the Bundesliga. I would like to play my part in this positive development and help to achieve the great goal of staying in the Bundesliga.” Union enjoyed their first season in the Bundesliga in 2019-20 and finished in 11th place on the table.
