Karius says Ramos should apologize to him following Champions League incident

- Loris Karius wants an apology from Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos

- The duo collided in the Champions League final last summer

- Afterwards the German goalkeeper committed two blunders

Liverpool goalkeeper has demanded for an apology from Sergio Ramos following his collision with the Real Madrid captain in last season's Champions League final.

The German shot-stopper made two costly mistakes that gifted Los Blancos two goals and led the Spanish side to their third straight European title.

The 25-year-old stated he was unsure of Ramos' intent but all he wanted was an apology for the Spaniard.

"I don't know if Sergio Ramos deliberately injured me,” Karis said.

“Only he knows, but it's not important.

"However, he has never said sorry to me. The tests that they did on me showed I had a visual impairment.”

During the final Karius found himself throwing the ball directly onto the foot of Karim Benzema, which gave Los Blancos the lead.

Karius' first blunder was throwing the ball directly to Karim Benzema then attempting to punch Gareth Bale's shot.

The German international has insisted he does not make such errors on a regular basis.

"In normal circumstances it's hard to imagine that I would make those mistakes,” he explained.

"Nobody will ever know the link between the blow I received and the mistakes I later made on the pitch. It's not an excuse, just an explanation.”

Karius who is currently on loan with Turkish Super Lig out fit Besiktas believes he will bounce back stronger.

“I still can’t explain the mistakes I made against Real Madrid,” Karius told German news outlet Bild.

“I have to get my confidence back and come to terms with the past.

“Oliver Kahn also made a big mistake in the World Cup final in 2002 and came back stronger, which is what I prefer to do rather than think about how long I will be haunted by the Champions League.”

Karius also dismissed rumours of rift between himself and Reds manager Jurgen Klopp.

“I have no problem with Jurgen Klopp, in fact we have a great relationship, he transferred me from Mainz,” Karius said.

“He never blamed me. The pressure got so big at some points from the media and the public that Liverpool had to react, which was not good for my situation, but that happens in football.”

Karius revealed it was his decision to leave Anfield and he was not forced out of the club as the Merseyside club signed Brazilian keeper Alisson.

“Nobody told me to leave Liverpool. I didn’t run away from Liverpool,” Karius said.

“I am at an age where I need to play regularly. After Alisson Becker’s transfer I decided to move to Istanbul and join Besiktas.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Real Madrid's Marco Asensio has been caught on camera trolling Loris Karius in the tunnel during pre-season friendly with Manchester United.

The Spanish international was heard shouting 'Karius, Karius' at David De Gea in a bid to poke fun at him, and Liverpool fans are not happy.
