experienced a nightmare in real life in the Champions League final
v. Real Madrid, but what happens next
Everything depends on where you are in your career, how long you
have been a first choice at your club, and what the error really
means for the club and the future. To see the errors by Karius was
of course very frustrating, but will it really affect his career as
Jurgen Klopp is the one with the answer, and what he will do with
the situation is totally up to him. To move on to another club could
of course be an option and if possible restructure your career.
If we go back in time, we will find out how big errors in games have
in real affected the career of a goalkeeper. One of the worst and
even worse than Karius was the one from Norwegian goalkeeper
Bjarte Flem of Tromso, throwing the ball in his own net.
The blunders are many, and a great number of great goalkeepers from
the Bundesliga did them as well. Here are some of the
worst mistakes from great goalkeepers such as
Manuel Neuer and
Loris Karius will forever be
remembered for what he did in the 2018 Champions League final.
The errors are among the worst ever in a top match such as this,
and watching them again and again, you just can't understand how a
professional goalkeeper can do things like that.
A goalkeeper who has over the time made great errors is
Joe Hart, prevously England number
one, but not anymore. Pep Guardiola decided to drop Hart from the
first team at Man City, despite being a first choice in the two
previous seasons winning the Premier League.
Joe Hart made a number of blunders, especially when playing for
England, one was just in front of that fantastic goal of Zlatan
Ibrahimovic, if you don't remember, here is
For Joe Hart, his mistakes has cost him his England career, and the
door looks closed. He has also struggled at Torino and West Ham, so
fatal errors could be deadly to a goalkeepers career.
For others such as Flem of Tromso, he played on, the same with Kahn
and Neuer. Neuer despite a few mistakes is still looked up on as one
of the best goalkeepers in the World.
