Loris Karius is set to take legal action against loan club Besiktas over a pay dispute.

The embattled goalkeeper, on a two-year loan at the Turkish club from Liverpool, has filed a complaint with FIFA stating he is owed four months’ wages.

Karius’ nightmare spell in Turkey sunk to new lows at the weekend as his own fans jeered a mistake, while manager Senol Gunes slammed him publically.

"Karius has gone a bit stagnant, something is wrong with his electricity, motivation, enthusiasm for the game," said Gunes.

"It has been like that since the beginning. He does not really feel a part of the team."

The 25-year-old is trapped in an awful downwards spiral, which was sparked by a disastrous performance in last season’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.
