Liverpool have been knocked out of the Champions League. As a result the Reds need to win pretty much every one of their remaining Premier League games in order to qualify for next season’s competition. Despite failing to win in midweek, some Liverpool fans have praised Ozan Kabak for his performance against Real Madrid.
This week was a disappointing one for Liverpool as the Reds crashed out in the quarter finals of the Champions League.
Despite the disappointment of elimination we can take heart from a positive performance in midweek.
The Reds gave themselves too big a task against the Spanish giants when they were dominated in the first half of the first leg.
Ozan Kabak v Real Madrid
Although we didn’t score against the visitors we didn’t concede either.
We saw another positive performance from Ozan Kabak against Real Madrid.
The Turkish defender was confident in possession, at a point intercepting ahead of Karim Benzema before launching Sadio Mane onto the counter attack.
The centre back has had some inconsistent performances since joining the Reds on loan from Schalke during the winter window but this was certainly one of his brighter showings.
Given that his future at Anfield isn’t secured yet the Turkish defender will be looking to play himself into a permanent move.
The Reds can sign the centre back for £18m but there have been suggestions that Michael Edwards will look to negotiate a lower fee.
