Merseyside Police will probe death threats made to Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius after Saturday’s Champions League Final against Real Madrid.
BBC Sport reports Karius and his family ‘were the subject of threats’ after the goalkeeper’s two blunders helped Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev.
“We take social media posts of this nature extremely seriously. Offences will be investigated,” police told the British broadcaster.
“Officers are aware of a number of comments and threats made via social media.
“Merseyside Police would like to remind social media users than any offences including malicious communications and threatening behaviour will be investigated.”
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… pic.twitter.com/w9GixPiQDC
