Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Moussa Sissoko has been quoted in The South China Morning Post claiming that his side deserved to win the 2019 Champions League final instead of Liverpool.
Neither Spurs nor Liverpool performed at their best in the final last month, but Jurgen Klopp’s side triumphed courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.
Sissoko, though, has insisted that the Reds were fortunate to lift the trophy.
As expected, the midfielder’s words have brought a fairly strong reaction from the Liverpool fans on social media.
Indeed, after catching wind of the comments, a number of the club’s supporters responded to a Tottenham fan account poking fun at the capital outfit.
And it’s difficult to blame the Liverpool fans in this situation as the bragging rights are firmly in their grasp.
Sissoko should have known he was asking for trouble…

A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Liverpool supporters, who have plenty to be happy about at the moment, can be seen below:
Wyd sissoko? There’s a good reason your manager wants to upgrade on you with n’dombele

But you didn’t deserve to win at all, you were incredible up until the final but bottled it there, we scored early ( controversial or not ) and you couldn’t break us down from there.
