    Finally a thread to track the career of the ultimate from zero to hero, and back to zero player in European football today.

    Can Karius get back on track at Besiktas and join the tier of other German legendaries like Kahn, Lehmann, Wiese, and Neuer. Or will he fade into obscurity like Rensing, Adler and so on.

    Besiktas drew 1-1 away at Partizan Belgrade in EL qualification playoffs yesterday. Their goal was scored by Tolgay Arslan.

    wasting his time in Turkey, shame he couldn't find a club in Germany.

    goes from being Liverpool's #1 to playing in Turkey ginormous downgrade.

    If Karius puts in the work, then I don't think all is lost. The best thing for Karius to do is to regain his confidence, be productive, and get his career back on track. The Liverpool fanbase have already condemned him to a point of no return.

    The Turkish league is not an ideal destination. But trying to look at it in an objective standpoint, Mario Gomez was able to become relevant again after playing there. While guys like Tolgay Arslan and Cenk Tosun developed there.

    Fwiw it seems like Turkish clubs have faired quite well against Bundesliga sides in European competition. Besiktas eliminated RB Leipzig recently, while a few seasons ago Galatasaray beat Schalke. Besiktas should also be contention for a league title again so Karius needs to do his part.
