Salah's World Cup in doubt as Klopp reveals injury is 'really serous'

Ronaldo drops hint he may leave Real Madrid after final Champions League triumph

Ronaldo drops hint he may leave Real Madrid after final Champions League triumph

Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has accepted the blame for his team's 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final, in which he made two terrible errors that both led to goals.

It was a moment of unbelievable carelessness from Karius, who attempted to roll the ball out to the nearest red shirt only for Benzema to stick out a leg and send it trickling into the net.

Taking the blame: Loris Karius has accepted responsibility for Liverpool's defeat by Real Madrid.

Only Madrid's jubilant stars acknowledged the German's angst before, still sobbing uncontrollably, he went toward Liverpool's supporters to hold his hands up in an attempt to apologise for his blunders.

Karius had an very bad night and it was terrible to watch the Reds goalkeeper completely alone in his penalty area at the end of the game.

In truth, though, despite their best efforts Liverpool never looked as much of a threat once Egyptian worldwide Salah went down under a challenge from Real captain Sergio Ramos. The final game of his glorious Liverpool season was over.

Speaking to talkSPORT straight after the match, Karius said: "I don't feel anything right now". Face-down on the field, Carvajal knew his final was over in the first half for the second successive season.




"In the next few days I will give an answer to the fans, who have always been at my side", said the five-time world player of the year, who appeared to target Real president Florentino Perez for a lack of support. "It's really hard to get rid of bad thoughts you have in your mind".

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum believes Salah's exit was detrimental to their performance, admitting the players were affected when he came off.

The Liverpool forward was forced off after suffering a suspected dislocated shoulder in a challenge with Real defender Sergio Ramos.

The Wales international's first goal was sublime and in many ways reminiscent of his manager Zinedine Zidane's goal which won the 2002 final, but his second was pure comedy as Karius let a 30-yard strike slip through his fingers. "If there's something behind this, he should come and clarify what it is today", Ramos said.

Karius turned Isco's shot wide but he was helpless with Real's next effort as substitute Bale produced an unstoppable world-class overhead kick which dropped just under the crossbar in the 64th minute.

"It was not the best script for us tonight".

"Finals are for winning, nothing else".
