Marco Asensio aims cheeky taunt at David de Gea with Loris Karius comparison
Updated: 1 Aug 2018
Marco Asensio decided to troll David de Gea by calling the goalkeeper ‘Karius’ in the tunnel before Manchester United’s friendly against Real Madrid.
United clashed with Real in Miami, beating the Spanish giants 2-1 in the final game of their US tour. Asensio plays alongside De Gea for Spain, but competes against his fellow Spaniard at club level.
The forward tried to unnerve De Gea before the game on Tuesday by comparing the stopper to Liverpool’s under-fire goalkeeper, Loris Karius.
Asensio can be heard saying ‘Karius, Karius, Karius’ in the tunnel as De Gea and the rest of the players make their way to the pitch.
But, De Gea seemed unmoved by Asensio’s cheeky taunts as the pair hugged in the tunnel and spoke after the game.
De Gea did not enjoy the best of World Cups for Spain, making one very noticeable mistake in the 3-3 draw with Portugal.
The United No.1 faced criticism for allowing Cristiano Ronaldo’s effort slip through his fingers.
Karius endured the worst night of his professional career against Asensio’s Real in the Champions League final last May, making two costly errors and gifting the La Liga side two goals.
The mistakes seem to have cost Karius his future at Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp decided to spend a world record fee on a new goalkeeper.
Alisson is set to take the No.1 spot from Karius, and the German is now considering his position at the Merseyside club.
However, reports claim Alisson will not take the No.1 jersey out of respect for Karius, instead the Brazil international will don the No.13 shirt.
