'I didn't say anything because a lot of people already went to him and sometimes you don't like it when too many people come, ' Wijnaldum said.
He explained: "The Real Madrid captain has a toughness that we are not seeing in other defenders".
The goalkeeper added: "Thank you to our unbelievable fans who came to Kiev and held my back, even after the game".
"Indeed, we met with representatives of two English clubs, but I would not like to advertise their names yet", Rafailov admitted.
"Thank you for your incredible support this campaign", he added, before vowing: "We will be back stronger next season!"
Karius received the backing of his coach Jurgen Klopp after the game but some fans on social media were less forgiving and British media reported that Merseyside Police were investigating death threats made towards the goalkeeper.
Police, meanwhile, said they would investigate social media threats sent in Karius's direction.
In the wake of his team's 3-1 defeat Karius ran to the sidelines and begged for forgiveness from a sea of Liverpool fans.
The German shot stopper was also at fault for Real's third goal when he fumbled in a speculative long-range effort from Gareth Bale, who had earlier beaten Karius with a sublime bicycle-kick. I feel sorry for my team.
As Real celebrated at the final whistle, an inconsolable Karius buried his face into the turf and then tearfully apologize to Liverpool's supporters. I'm sorry for everyone - from the team, from the whole club - that the mistakes cost dearly. He knows it, I know it, you all know it.
Liverpool coach Juergen Klopp described the goals as "quite odd".

In the replay of the challenge between him and Ramos, it had appeared that both players had locked arms during the takedown, a move some believe was intentional by Ramos to injure Salah and essentially eliminate Liverpool's best player.
Posts included a commenter saying he hoped Karius died of cancer, while another read: "I hope your whole family dies" and one even said "I'll murder your girl".
