Karius: At 16 I had offers from multiple clubs

Before transferring to Manchester City, he was watched by “half the premier league”, says Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius, though maintaining that he would leave Anfield only if first-team football was on offer.

“At the time, I was playing in the U16 national team and there were a lot of scouts at the games. At 16 you could sign your first professional contract. I had offers from all various clubs back then, but Manchester City was out of their way to help me.” the keeper stated to Transfermarkt.

“So I said to myself: I will take up the offer, and I will travel to England.”

“At that time I was only listening to Man City and VfB ’s plans. At that moment, the arrival of investors in clubs was just beginning.”

“Man City was, in reality, a club strongly dependent on its own youngsters. Many have made the breakthrough, the academy has been in a strong place that’s why I eventually settled on this club.”
