Liverpool fans slam Ragnar Klavan after Manchester City thrashing

Ten-man Liverpool were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City on a disappointing afternoon at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, and Reds fans were particularly disappointed with the performance of one of their centre-backs.

Ragnar Klavan was preferred to Dejan Lovren in the starting line-up alongside Joel Matip at the heart of the defence to face Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero, but the latter gave Pep Guardiola’s men the lead in the 24th minute before the visitors’ task was made even more difficult when Sadio Mane was dismissed for a high challenge on City goalkeeper Ederson 13 minutes later.

Gabriel Jesus added a second in first-half stoppage time as the Reds defence struggled to cope with their opponents before the Brazilian scored again after the interval, while Leroy Sane added two more late on.

Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on Klavan’s performance via social media and they were not impressed, with some saying “he is a calamity” and others saying he should be nowhere near the team.
