​Loris Karius Apologises For 'Mistakes' In Champions League Final

Loris Karius has apologised for his 'mistakes' in the Champions League final last night, admitting that they cost his team their first European title in 13 years.

In a series of three heartfelt tweets, the German goalkeeper explained that the scenes from the fame were still running through his head 'again and again', saying that he knew he 'messed it up'.

He wrote:

Speaking to Sky Sports after his disastrous match, Karius said: "I don't feel anything right now.

"Today I lost my team the game and I feel sorry for everyone - from the team, from the whole club - that the mistakes cost dearly.

"If I could go back in time I would. I feel sorry for my team. I know I let them down today. These goals cost us the title basically.

"It's very hard right now but that's the life of a goalkeeper. You have to get your head up again."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp also weighed in on the keeper's mistakes, saying: "What can I say? Loris knows it, everybody knows it. It's a shame in a game like this and after a season like this. I really feel for him; he's a fantastic boy.

"Nobody wants that, [but] that's the situation. The mistakes were obvious, we don't have to talk about that, it's all clear; he knows it, I know it, you all know it.

"Now, he has to deal with it, we have to deal with, we will do that, of course, we will be with him, there's no doubt about that. It was not his night, obviously."

His mistakes last night may have cost Liverpool dearly, but amid all the backlash there was one unlikely admirer that Loris Karius doesn't seem to have upset at all.

Far from being angry at the Liverpool goalie's performance in the Champion's League final, former adult star Mia Khalifa seemed quite taken with Karius, as she posted a flirty message on one of his Instagram photos.

Before his team's defeat at the hands of Real Madrid, the German keeper posted a photo of himself with the caption: "Eyes on the prize."

While many commenters posting after the match gave him a ribbing - sports website Bench Warmers joked that he probably should've kept his eyes on the ball instead - 25-year-old Khalifa posted a flirty message of support.

"Is he the prize? Because..." she wrote.

Mario Balotelli also seems to have spotted Khalifa's flirty comment and got involved in the conversation before telling Karius to 'stay strong'.

Well, good to see it's not all bad for Loris.
