Jurgen Klopp has defended his U-turn regarding his decision to sell goalkeeper Loris Karius by stating that “things in football change”.
Loris Karius found himself under criticism following his mistakes in the Champions League final against Real Madrid as well as some error-strewn displays in pre-season.
Klopp initially backed Karius even as Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker completed his move from Roma to Anfield, but German goalkeeper now looks set to complete a loan move to Besiktas.
“There’s nothing new about Loris,” Klopp told reporters ahead of the Premier League meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion. “If it happens that’s how it goes in football, these things can happen.
“As a manager you don’t usually need much time between one game and another to get the sack, that’s how things can change. Things in football change.”
