Klopp: Ramos' hit on Karius impacted Champions League final

As reported by Goal, the Reds are weighing up whether to sign a new No.1 goalkeeper, with Roma's Alisson having been linked, or persist with Loris Karius despite his errors in the Champions League finals.

Meanwhile, new signings Naby Keita and Fabinho are likely to make their first appearances for Liverpool at Chester on the weekend.

The original collision with Ramos went virtually unnoticed and Karius' concussion was not discovered until five days later, when the player went for assessments while on holiday in the United States.

"I got all the pictures from different perspectives, saw it and thought 'How can we all think that the boy who didn't show any weakness in that game until then made these big mistakes in a very important game and nobody thinks it's because of the knock he got?'" Klopp said.

However, a move to Old Trafford never materialised, despite Fabinho saying he would be interested in a switch, and Liverpool swooped for his services shortly after losing the Champions League final to Real Madrid.

"If they'll start, I don't know, to be honest. I know we can achieve a lot of things together".

"Equally, our commitment to him says we see his value and want him to grow even more and get even better within our environment".

Klopp says that Liverpool will use the concussion as an explanation, rather than an excuse. "He was influenced by that knock - that is 100%", he was quoted as saying by BBC. It was a huge honour to hear such a compliment and that's what I wanted for my career - a move to a big club that knew they could count on me. I'm not sure if we have two complete teams because not really all positions are covered. We do not use it as an excuse. If you make a mistake in a Champions League final, it's a mistake you can not change anymore, even if you want to - and we all want to.

The 26-year-old also picked up Liverpool's Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year awards, while also becoming the first player to win three Premier League Player of the Month awards in a single season, as he led Jurgen Klopp's side to a fourth-place finish in the league and the finals of the UEFA Champions League, where they were thrashed by Real Madrid. We do not use it as an excuse. That's always important, that's what analysis should be: you explain why things happen.

"I'm looking forward to it".
