  1. Nothing. Salah and Mane should not have started. Mane is absolute and utter rubbish for 2 full seasons now .Salah form drop soooo much after February, that he shoud have been on the bench .This two single handedly cost Liverpool the title. They have one very big game to play in last 2 seasons ,and they failed miserably. All others first 11 have done their job brilliantly. This two cost Liverpool dearly

  2. Difference between class of Klopp and Pep was seen here. Pep accepted defeat after loosing to Real Madrid in injury time and he praised Liverpool for taking the league to the last match when he won epl 4 in 5 years while Klopp blames wind, Defenders and Goalkeeper for doing his job.

    In 2020, they were so cocky about Athletico Madrid for celebrating there victory (they are still waiting for 3rd leg).

  3. Same story as in 2018 final and last season in the QF. Liverpool simply have no answer for Toni Kroos and Luka Modric! When you factor in Casemiro's defensive ability and physicality then Liverpool were never going to get much joy with their pressing strategy.

  4. I think Liverpool should've used Salah as a super sub. For some reason he thought the game was just about him and he was trying too much to create the headlines.

  5. Liverpool did what they were supposed to do and didn’t score a goal. Madrid did what they know how to do and score a goal to win. Deserved or not deserved, you win finals whichever way you can. If playing beautifully won you the final, great. But you have to win it regardless. Liverpool played like Liverpool and Madrid won Hala Madrid. That’s how they know to win.

  6. Liverpool forwards just had to be more clinical. Some fine saves by the Madrid keeper stopped this thought but a few shots on goal could have ended up in. Well deserved man of the match.

  7. Liverpool just had too many intense games since the league cup final. The injuries and tried legs just made beating Madrid more diffulct bc I thought Liverpool played well it was just at a slower pace than normal even Henderson was walking around the pitch in passion

  8. Asked Trent to focus more on defending. Asked Salah to not take so many 30 yard shorts straight at 5 foot 5 in Courtois' hands. Asked Thiago to take the game forward instead of making the 5-10 yard neat sideways passes because he has that ability.

  9. They could have tryed mane – firmino- salah… because in winger position mane is to good and he can easy treble past the backs ! And firmino would have showed us magic

  10. One thing: Have more truly world class players.

    The dutchman in the back is the only one. Mane and Salah are overhyped. Compare than to having the best player in Benzema and the best goalkeeper.

    Oh yeah, and Klopp's record of trophies is a bit shallow.
