Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has received abuse and death threats on social media after his nightmare performance in the Champions League final. Fans blamed the blundering errors for Liverpool's 3-1 defeat against Real Madrid. Karius broke down in tears after the finale, admitted his mistake and made a heartfelt apology to fans for letting the team down.

He said after the game: "If I could go back in time, I would. I know I let them down. It's very hard right now but that's the life of a goalkeeper. These goals cost us the title basically."

But some fans have reacted by posting huge backlash against the goal keeper, some calling him a Nazi and many wishing him dead. Despite the death threats, Karius issued a heartfelt apology to fans on Twitter on Sunday evening.

He wrote: "Haven't really slept until now... the scenes are still running through my head again and again... I'm infinitely sorry to my teammates, for you fans, and for all the staff I know that I messed it up with the two mistakes and let you all down."
