And Reds supporters won’t mind Klopp calling out a rival’s woes to support the claim.
“He made a mistake, too, which David De Gea made a few days before. Even the best goalkeepers in the world still make mistakes.
“There is no perfect recipe for development but shut your ears or close your ears helps a lot. I’m quite good at that. Hopefully, he can adapt to my skills to this.”
Klopp isn’t alone in defending Karius, as ex-Liverpool star Pepe Reina thinks the keeper’s been outstanding for the Reds.
