Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter in fury after former PSG man Habib Beye had some harsh words to share on midfield trio Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner.
Beye told Canal (via GFFN): “Liverpool are about to go into a Champions League final with Milner, Henderson & Wijnaldum. We need to stop thinking that PSG can’t do it because of the players that they have.”
Has Alisson been Liverpool’s most important signing of the season? Check out the video below to find out why Jurgen Klopp thinks so…
Now, this is massively disrespectful to the midfield trio in question, who have worked their socks off to get Liverpool in some extremely exciting positions over the last few years.
The funny thing is that Liverpool have already beaten PSG in the Champions League this season using that very same midfield, so Beye really doesn’t have a leg to stand on.
They may not be as exciting as the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Isco, but Milner, Henderson and Wijnaldum will guarantee you commitment, hard work and an abundance of effort; around players such as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, their graft goes a long way to helping the flair players perform.
Beye’s comments are extremely unfair on the Liverpool trio, and have quite rightly been met with anger from some of the Reds supporters on Twitter…
Habib Beye on Canal Football Club tonight: “Liverpool are about to go into a Champions’ League final with Milner, Henderson & Wijnaldum. We need to stop thinking that PSG can’t do it because of the players that they have.”

Henderson and Milner have more passion steel and grit than the entire PSG locker room

Those 3 players lack technical ability but make up for it with their energy, desire and passion. You can have all the skills in the world but you have no passion then your rubbish. Those 3 midfielders beat Barcelona, Psg, Napoli, Bayern and Porto. Put some respect on their name.

Bit cheeky. They need to stop thinking they deserve it cause they spent dodgy money.

Or maybe PSG and their owners need to stop wasting millions on showponys like neymar and buy real honest hard working footballers?

The fact we didn’t play our best midfield and still won makes me laugh , the disrespect is unbelievable here though
