Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius has been given a new nickname whilst out on loan to Besiktas in Turkey.

Karius completed a loan move to Besiktas last month, after falling out-of-favour under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

The German shot-stopper has signed a two-year loan deal with Besiktas, which could then become permanent upon completion.

Karius came under fire after his performance in the Champions League final at the end of last season, with many Liverpool fans blaming him for their defeat to Real Madrid.

As quoted by The Mirror, Karius said this: 

I love the Bosphorus, I really want to live in a place with a view of the sea.

I did not have this many fans in England and I can say most seem to be female.

Whenever I am out and about in Istanbul whoever recognizes me wants a photograph.

These fans have already given him a new nickname, labeling him “Casanova”. This is because of his “boyband style” and appearance.

The goalkeeper has made one appearance for Besiktas so far, a 1-1 draw against Bursaspor.
