Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius says he has “terminated” his two-year loan deal at the Turkish side of Besiktas. The 26-year-old had been in his second year of spell in Istanbul and made 30 appearances until the season was halted by the coronavirus.
Karius said in an Instagram post on Monday within the midst of the action that he had been in talks with Besiktas ownership for months to undertake to settle the matter, which he was sorry to go away behind his teammates and supporters in Istanbul.
Karius said on Instagram that it had been a “shame it’s come to an end like this.”
The German added: “I’ve been very cautious for months, telling the board again and again. Last year, equivalent issues have already occurred. Unfortunately they haven’t tried to unravel this situational problem and even refused my suggestion to assist by taking a salary cut .”
“It’s important to me that you simply know I actually enjoyed playing for this club tons. Besiktas are often pleased with having such passionate fans behind them always giving amazing support.”
The German confirmed Besiktas to FIFA for a second time for unpaid wages last month, although an agreement between the 2 sides was apparently on the brink of being found without Fifa’s interference.
The deal included canceling Karius’ contract, with Besiktas owing him £400,000 in unpaid wages. Karius said Besiktas had “refused even my offer of helping with a salary cut .”It is vital to me that you simply know I actually enjoyed twiddling with this club tons.
Besiktas should still be pleased with having such loyal supporters behind them, giving them tremendous support in the least times.
“You have supported me in good and bad days, and that I will always check out you within the best way.” “I would also wish to thank all my team-mates, coaching staff, and every one those that work with the club for that. you’ve got welcomed me with wide-open arms from the very first day.
