Real Madrid 3 Liverpool 1
Congratulations to Real Madrid whose class showed again tonight and commiserations to Liverpool. Ultimately Madrid were too good for us on the night. Luck wasn't with us and mistakes cost us. But there was also some individual brilliance that made all the difference.
We didn't really do justice to ourselves after a brilliant season and wonderful run in the Champions League right up to the final. It was a game too far for us. We just didn't have the strength in depth and the class. Losing Mo Salah was pivotal but then so were those goalkeeping mistakes.
Still we will look to next season with hope in our hearts to coin a phase, knowing what we are capable of and knowing that with a little more class and luck we can have an even better season next season.
