Liverpool‘s new No.1 goalkeeper Loris Karius has given away one of his pre-game rituals, after appearing to accidentally reveal that he plays the Reds’ fixtures on FIFA 17 before playing them in real life.
Signed from Mainz in the summer, the German under-21 stopper appears to have dislodged previous first choice Simon Mignolet after starting the 5-1 victory over Hull City last weekend.
The 23-year-old appears to be revelling in the limelight of playing for one of Europe’s biggest club, and took to Instagram to show off his new edition of FIFA:
But, if you take a closer look at the top left corner, Karius’ is obviously playing as Liverpool away to Swansea – this weekend’s Premier League opponents.
He even has the venue right! This is surely too much to be just a mere coincidence…we reckon Karius is pretty intense when it comes to preparation.
What do you think?
