Besiktas manager Yalcin confirms Karius returning to Liverpool

Besiktas manager Sergen Yalcin has revealed on-loan goalkeeper Loris Karius will return to Liverpool this summer.

The German has endured a poor campaign in Turkey and reports emerged last week that his on-loan side would not be signing him permanently.

Speaking after Besiktas' 2-2 draw with Trabzonspor, Yalcin said: "We are currently playing with Karius. We do not intend to make much changes. The end of the season he will probably not be with us.

"Goalkeepers can sometimes be unlucky. Good goalkeepers also concede very bad goals. They say the ball has eyes. If the ball has an intention, it enters from somewhere.

"I don't think it is right to judge the players. We will do the best we can do at the end of the season."
