He initially struggled with Injury but usurped Simon Mignolet as the first choice goalkeeper of the club last season. Despite some notable performances, Karius fell to an all-time low gifting two goals in the Champions League defeat to Madrid.

Jurgen Klopp initially stood by the player before gaffes in Pre-season led the club to sanction a then transfer record of  £56million for the signing of Brazillian Alisson Becker from Roma. Chelsea has since broken the record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao.

A move away from England to an obscure league away from the prying eyes of the English media is good for the Karius as he still has time on his side to rediscover his confidence and regain his form.
