Loris Karius has taken to social media to hit back at his critics after another error in Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the International Champions Cup.

Liverpool goalkeeper Karius fumbled Christian Pulisic's shot as Jacob Bruun Larsen scored Dortmund's third goal in stoppage time after an earlier unpunished lapse when he sliced a clearance straight to Maximillian Philipp on Sunday.

Karius has been a subject of ridicule from many fans after two glaring errors against Real Madrid in Liverpool's 3-1 Champions League final defeat.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed the former Mainz stopper to learn from his mistakes, though the Reds has since signed Alisson in a world-record deal for a keeper.

German Karius used Instagram to respond to his detractors amid the ongoing scrutiny. "To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you," the 25-year-old said in a messaged posed on Sunday.

"Whatever it is that is happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you."

Klopp is not the only one who is tired of Karius' critics, as former Madrid and Spain captain Iker Casillas also came to the defence of his fellow stopper.
