Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to call on the club to sign Ajax wonderkid Matthijs de Ligt, after the teenage sensation put in yet another commanding performance on the biggest stage, this time against Real Madrid.
The Netherlands international was unlucky to be on the losing side against the Champions League holders, as the hosts had a goal chalked off by VAR before seeing the Spanish giants score a late winner through Marco Asensio’s strike – two away goals for Los Blancos mean the Eredivisie giants have it all to do at the Santiago Bernabeu in the second leg.
Despite the loss, 19-year-old de Ligt’s performance was eye-catching once again, and Liverpool fans certainly took notice.
The Reds are currently having huge problems in defence, as both Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren are injured whilst Joel Matip is extremely inconsistent.
As a result of that, fans of the Merseyside outfit on Twitter have pleaded with the club to sign the rising Dutch star…
