Klopp plays down Karius howler in Tranmere win

Jonny Smith is yet to make a senior appearance for Bristol City

The 25-year-old has produced yet another embarrassing error during a friendly against Tranmere on Tuesday evening, fumbling a free-kick to hand Jonny Smith a tap in from close range.

Afterwards, Klopp was quick to point out Karius wasn't the only one who erred on the night.

"Let's carry on and make the best of all these situations by learning from them", said Klopp.

He was asked how attention could be diverted away from Karius, saying: "You can stop it by not asking, promise?"

It appears that one of the Tranmere players wasn't too impressed with Karius' howler, and he showed him little sympathy.

"We can not change that". That you [the media] do what you do, we have to deal with it.

Karius mouthed "f*** off" after conceding the goal.

Jurgen Klopp insists that "mistakes happen" after goalkeeper Loris Karius once again gifted the opposition an easy goal in Liverpool's second pre-season outing.

With Kent and Wilson having been amongst the goals against Chester in the previous match, Klopp really does now have a headache, with each Liverpool youngster desperate for a break.

And he told Liverpoolfc.com: "Very good, to get my first goal for Liverpool was a major feeling".

"We need to make the most of the situation and learn".

Liverpool held on to win 3-2 at Prenton Park, but still...
