Former Germany and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn admitted that he fears for the career of Liverpool shot-stopper Loris Karius following the Reds 3-1 defeat during the final of the Uefa Champions League on Saturday.

Karius had an horror game as he gifted Madrid with the first goal as well as their third.

His miss-throw allowed Karim Benzema to block the ball into the net for Madrid’s opener while he also parried a long-range shot from Gareth Bale into the net for Madrid’s third which all but sealed the trophy for Zinedine Zidane’s men.

“I’m lost for words,” Kahn said, speaking on ZDF. “I can’t remember having experienced something more brutal from a goalkeeping point of view than in this final. An evening like this can destroy a career.”

If there is one person who will be able to relate to Karius, it is Khan. Khan delivered sublime performances for Germany during the 2002 World Cup and won the Golden Ball award at the event. However, his goalkeeping mistakes during the final allowed Brazil’s Ronaldo to score twice and gifted his country the title.
