Loris Karius:

The climax becomes a low point. From 2016 to 2018, Loris Karius played for Liverpool FC, as the new number one, the goalkeeper from Mainz 05 was brought to the Anfield Road. But Karius could not really meet the expectations set in him due to the media pressure and some power fluctuations and quickly lost his regular place. He worked back in his second season and was in the Champions League final against Real Madrid in 2018. But this game should be his last for Liverpool. With two catastrophic mistakes that led to goals conceded, he made the royal victory. Two borrowing to Besiktas Istanbul and Union Berlin were the consequences. After four years without commitment to the Reds, Karius has been without a club since this summer.

André Schürrle:

from Leverkusen, the then national player went to Chelsea in summer 2013. He is said to have cost around 22 million euros at the time. At Schürrle, the problem was José Mourinho, whom he was never able to convince sustainably. With a total of 65 missions, the left wing scored 14 goals before moving back to Germany in February 2015 and signing a contract with VfL Wolfsburg. For the 2018/19 season, Schürrle then moved to the Premier League again. Two years on a rental base with promoted FC Fulham were planned. It was only one season that culminated in the direct relegation of the association and Schürrles.
