Eric Bailly Sends Classy Message To Loris Karius

"Whatever happened in the final would not have changed my view that Liverpool need a goalkeeper".

Karim Benzema scored a weird opener early in the second half when he intercepted Karius' attempt to throw the ball to Dejan Lovren, diverting it into the empty Liverpool goal.

The 24-year-old - who has received online abuse that is now being investigated by Merseyside Police - took to social media on Sunday to apologise to teammates and fans for his role in the defeat. For a long time it was uncertain if they wanted a huge upgrade to Alisson Becker from AS Roma or Jan Oblak from Atletico Madrid or simply find a player to compete with Loris Karius. Salah had to go to the hospital after a tackle 30 minutes into the game, prompting many Liverpool fans to say the injury seemed intentional. But team is the key word and you win and lose as a team.

"His mistakes were obvious, he knows that, I know, and you know that". It was a sensational final, but Liverpool played great football and I am sure they will return more experienced and I'm sure this team's time will come'. I don't take that for granted and once again it showed me what a big family we are.

"I actually feel sorry for him, I really do", said Murphy.

"It's very hard right now but that's
the life of a goalkeeper".

But then came Bale, leaping to produce a jaw-dropping left-foot overhead volley from Marcelo's cross before trying his luck with a speculative long-range shot that defied Karius's ham-fisted attempt to keep it out and put the result beyond doubt.

He thanked the "unbelievable fans" for coming to Kiev and promised to "come back stronger".

The incredible play of Gareth Bale, Ronaldo's numerous trophies and a serious injury of Liverpool player Mohamed Salah after a clash with Sergio Ramos became the main topics on Twitter after the eventful Champions League match. It was a goal that effectively relegated us and Dorus was in floods of tears after the game in the dressing room.
