Loris Karius’s crazy journey, from tearful Champions League disaster to Thor lookalike’s body transformation
LORIS KARIUS has come a long way since his days as Liverpool’s No1.
The German goalie, now 29, has signed for Newcastle United on a free transfer, where he will provide cover for England shotstopper Nick Pope.
It marks a new chapter in his life, following years away from Anfield rebuilding his career after an infamous error-strewn Champions League final appearance in 2018.
But, in between loan spells at Besiktas and Union Berlin, Karius hasn’t let his Reds nightmare stop him from enjoying life.
The fashionable Chris Hemsworth/Thor lookalike has been spotted letting his hair down at the Monaco Grand Prix, and enjoying lavish breaks away.
However, he hasn’t neglected his fitness – and is a shadow of the lean keeper we remember from before.
What a life
Going by his Instagram account. Karius lives a life to envy.
The handsome footballer is followed by almost two million people, and he receives plenty of notes from female admirers who comment about his good looks.
And they will most certainly be wowed by the lifestyle he leads.
Clearly an F1 fan, Karius has shared pictures enjoying the VIP treatment at the Monaco Grand Prix and the most recent Dutch Grand Prix.
For both events he’s looked like the height of fashion – once wearing a fuschia pink denim jacket that would surely attract the attention of everyone in the paddock.
Other fashionable outfits featured a fluffy brown cardigan, trendy hoodies over the top of the long coats, t-shirts and harem pants… Karius is a man with his finger on the pulse of style.
Loves a retreat away
Sun, sand and see are good for the soul.
And Karius knows that, taking in many trips abroad to recharge his batteries.
On one visit to the beach, with the sunset as his backdrop, Karius was snapped taking in his surroundings.
He posted the image on social media, captioning it: “My happy place.”
Karius also uploaded a snap tanning his sculpted physique in Greece last year.
He’s a man who understands what he needs to relax.
Move over Arnie
At Liverpool, Karius cut a svelte figure.
But today’s Karius is a 6ft 2in mountain of a man – built like a bodybuilder.
Often boasting about “double sessions” and showing off his gym workouts, the pin-up has muscles footballers around the globe will surely envy.
And even when he’s on a holiday, he doesn’t miss a day in the gym and loves to get on an exercise bike.
Fans on Instagram even compared him to The Terminator, made famous by Hollywood movie legend Arnold Schwarzenegger.
One commented: “He’s like the terminator now nothings getting past him.”
While another added: “Like Superman.”
Newcastle will be hoping that their Thor doppelganger could be their very own superhero this season.
