Steven Gerrard names two Liverpool FC players who starred against Real Madrid
Steven Gerrard praises Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson for their performances in the Champions League final
Steven Gerrard singled out Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson’s performances as two positives from Liverpool FC’s Champions League final defeat by Real Madrid on Saturday.
It ended up being an extremely disappointing night for the Reds as Real Madrid claimed a 3-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s men to win the competition for the third season running.
Mo Salah had to come off injured in the first half, before two errors from Loris Karius ended up handing the Spanish side the trophy.
Liverpool FC earned plenty of new admirers for their performances on their way towards reaching the final of Europe’s elite club competition.
And Liverpool FC legend Gerrard believes that the likes of Robertson and Henderson deserve praise for their performances against Real Madrid, despite the disappointment of the result.
Speaking to BT Sport, Gerrard said: “It was tough to watch because of the mistakes but I liked a lot about Liverpool’s performance. It was very difficult to criticise the performance.
“I thought Andy Robertson was brilliant and Jordan Henderson played well. Liverpool defended well.
“Everything just points towards the obvious mistakes but it’s a tough one. As a fan and an ex-player, it’s very tough.”
Liverpool FC confirmed their first signing of the summer on Sunday evening when they announced that they had agreed a deal with Monaco to sign Fabinho.
The Brazilian midfielder will officially become a Liverpool FC player on 1 July.
The Reds are likely to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next term.
