Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will hold an inquest into his team’s 5-2 Champions League thrashing at the hands of Real Madrid, according to Reds legend Steven Gerrard. The Reds went two goals ahead during the early stages of the match before imploding as Madrid played them off the pitch.
“I think it’s a reality check,” Gerrard told BT Sport after the match. “Got off to the perfect start, exactly what you need on a European night – start fast, get yourself in front, build on it. They went 2-0 up, but from that moment Real Madrid came back into it, scored quite quick – fantastic goal.
“From then Liverpool were dominated and outclassed for large periods. Look, I think any team, any club, if you concede five goals there’s got to be an inquest into why and how. I’m sure Jurgen will do that in the coming days.
“I think everyone will be a little bit raw on the back of that defeat – Liverpool don’t concede five goals here at Anfield, and if they do it’s very rare. There’s going to be a little bit of soul-searching, a little bit of looking in the mirror, sure, there always is when you concede that many goals. It weren’t good enough.”
