Newcastle: the strange pressure from Loris Karius' fiancée


By: Manu Tournoux

Unfortunately known for his two mistakes in the 2018 Champions League final with Liverpool against Real Madrid (3-1), Loris Karius has since resumed the course of his career and tried to rebuild himself. Aged 30, the German goalkeeper played for Besiktas and Union Berlin before finally defending Newcastle's goals since September 2022. Although ahead of Nick Pope and Martin Dubravka, he nevertheless played one match this season during the 4-1 defeat against Arsenal on February 24. Arriving at the end of his contract at the end of the season, he is pushed towards the exit, in particular by… his fiancée, Diletta Leotta.

Presenter for DAZN and Italian model, the latter declared to Tuttosport that she wanted her partner to leave the English club for practical reasons: “I live in Milan, so let’s say being close to Milan would be ideal for us. I always tell him that players who come to Serie A fall in love with Italy and often stay there forever. I think it could happen to him too. Monza or any other team in Italy. I would be happy if he came to Italy to play near his family. Newcastle is very inconvenient, as there are no direct flights. Neither Paris nor Amsterdam.”
