Fans criticize Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson after the Reds’ loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final.
While the midfielder played a role in leading his club to the continental final, he was unable to rally the entire team in search of a much-needed goal against a solid Madrid.
He struck a balance in the middle of the park, even managing a long shot toward goal, but that was not enough for a section of Twitter fans who rip off the star.
The eventual defeat did not benefit the fans, who belittled the captain for the club’s poor performance on Twitter. Some even asked what he does for Liverpool. Here’s a selection of tweets from annoyed fans:
The Liverpool The captain has been a steady force for Jurgen Klopp and the Kopites, having finished the season with 56 games under him. He successfully guided the club to FA Cup trophy, as well as the Carabao Cup.
Even if the Premier League title passed them by on the final day of the tournament, Henderson helped the Reds win two championship trophies and reach the Champions League final.
Henderson and Liverpool lost to Real Madrid
However, the captain and the rest of the team will have no idea how they ended the night in Paris without the Champions League trophy. They dominated the game considerably for long minutes, advancing into the final third and looking for chances in front of goal.
However, Real Madrid had opened the scoring and made them unable to equalize, in the end the Red Devils had to receive a painful goal.
They had a stunning 24 shots on target with nine on target, but were unable to score. In fact, Liverpool had more shots on target than Madrid had chances, but the Madridistas were more clinical and opened the game with a Vinicius Junior goal.
The Red Devils will have another chance in the Champions League next season, finishing second in the Premier League. While their efforts against Real Madrid in Paris seem futile, they will return with renewed strength in pursuit of the coveted continental title.
