Liverpool battered

The first half we saw from the Reds against Real Madrid was one of the worst 45 minutes of football we’ve seen from the lads in some time.

Liverpool were drastically poor. Jürgen Klopp’s men were lackadaisical at best.

There was no pressure on the ball and we were constantly giving it away.

Vinicius Jr opened the scoring when he brought down Toni Kroos’ inch perfect pass.

The Brazilian terrorised the back four all night with his dribbling and sharp turn of pace.

Fabinho on Vinicius Jr

After the game the Fabinho was spotted talking to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez in the tunnel.

The midfielder’s conversation has been reported by Spanish paper Marca.

Fabinho allegedly praised Vinicius in the exchange, telling the president, “what a player you have in Vinicius”.

What RTK has to say

We all thought the same this week.

The Brazilian winger ran us ragged, some Kopites may be excited by that.

A couple of months ago Diario Madridista claimed Liverpool are interested in £39m star Vinicius Jr.

The youngster is going to keep getting better and better, if there is genuine interest from the Reds then we’ll be over the moon with the move.
