Painfully, it was a sad day for the German as his under armed ball went straight to Karim Benzema for Real's first and he also allowed Gareth Bale's long range drive slip through his fingers.

However, 48 hours after the math in Kiev, Karius remained inconsolable and apologised to Liverpool fans and team-mates for his two mistakes.

He wrote on social media: “I know I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down.

“Haven’t really slept until now. The scenes are still running through my head again and again. I’m infinitely sorry to my team-mates, for you fans, and for all the staff. #

"I’d just like to turn back the time but that’s not possible.”

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Merseyside police are investigating death threats made to Karius after his embarrassing performance in the Champions League final in Kiev against Real Madrid.

The Reds went down 3-1 to the Spaniards at the Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev Saturday night after two catastrophic goalkeeping errors cost his team.

Karius gifted Karim Benzema the opening goal of the contest after releasing the ball right into the path of the lingering Frenchman who deflected the ball home into the empty net.
