“I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down.

“As I said I’d just like to turn back the time but that’s not possible.

“It’s even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time.

“Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game.

“I don’t take that for granted and once again it showed me what a big family we are. Thank you and we will come back stronger.”

Karius has to somehow manage to lift himself from the personal misery of his experience in Kiev, when his big night suddenly turned into a nightmare.

He gifted Real the lead when he threw the ball against the knee of Karim Benzema, and it trickled into the empty net in front of a stunned stadium.

And he was again at fault to end Liverpool’s hopes of forcing extra time when he allowed a Gareth Bale shot straight at him to squirm from his grasp and over the line.
