There was so much hope within the red half of Merseyside that Liverpool would come home from Kiev with their sixth European crown.
However, it was not to be as Real Madrid nabbed their third in a row with a 3-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s side on Saturday evening.
The Reds suffered the worst luck of all when their star man Mohamed Salah was substituted just after the half-hour mark with a dislocated shoulder.
It was a huge blow that the team failed to recover from, and it was made worse when goalkeeper Loris Karius gifted Madrid the opening goal by attempting to roll the ball out.
It was a poor decision as Karim Benzema latched on to simply knock it home, but Liverpool will given some hope when Sadio Mane equalised.
Substitute Gareth Bale ruined the Merseyside outfit’s dream with a stunning overhead kick, and Karius was at fault again towards the end of the game as he fumbled the Welshman’s shot.
The German keeper made two costly howlers, and he tried to redeem himself by apologising to the fans after the final whistle with tears streaming down his face.
Even though the majority of the Reds’ support have managed to forgive him, plenty are desperate for a new goalkeeper to be bought this summer.
Atletico Madrid shot-stopper Jan Oblak has done the rounds in the rumour mill a few times, and fans believe that he should certainly be under consideration by the club.
The 25-year-old – valued at £63m by Transfermarkt – made 49 appearances in all competitions this season, conceding 28 goals and keeping out 29.
Oblak need to be signed asap. #LFC.
