Newcastle United sign a contract "nightmare" Salah and Liverpool

Newcastle United announced today, Monday, the signing of German goalkeeper Loris Karius from Liverpool for a short period until January 2023.

Newcastle United have released a statement on their website confirming the signing of Karius on a free transfer following his departure from Liverpool on a short-term contract until January next year, with an option to extend until the end of the season.

This was due to an ankle injury to substitute goalkeeper Karl Darlow during a Newcastle training session that he would miss for a long time, as well as the departure of Slovakian goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to Manchester United.

Karius expressed his joy at the move to Newcastle, saying: “I’m excited. This is a good opportunity for me and a great project that I can take part in. It didn’t take long to make a decision.”

He added: “Newcastle have a great coach and he plays very attractive football. I felt like this was the right project for me and I’m excited to be working with my new coaches and teammates.”

Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe said: “We are delighted to add Lloris to our group of goalkeepers. He is a very good goalkeeper with experience in the Premier League and European football and will keep the competition and support going through an important part of the season.”

Loris Karius, 29, gained a lot of “negative” publicity in the 2018 Champions League final when he made a fatal mistake that led to Liverpool’s 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in Istanbul.

And it seems that the curse of the Champions League final haunted the German goalkeeper even when he went on loan to Turkish side Besiktas.

Loris Karius, during a match between Besiktas and its Swedish hosts Malmö in early October 2018 in the Europa League, received an unexpected goal, which resulted in the Turkish side losing two goals unanswered.
