Liverpool goalie Loris Karius sent death threats after Champions League blunders

A section of Liverpool fans insist Ramos' intention was to take Salah out of the game, and point to the fact the Real defender wrapped his arm around his opponent.

The Wales worldwide, the first British player to score a victor in the European Cup final since Liverpool-born Peter Withe in 1982, produced an influential 29-minute cameo in the 3-1 victory which was a horror show for Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius. And then the other decisive moments were the goals; they were quite odd, that's how it is.

Ronaldo said in a later interview that he regretted the timing of his comments although his remarks brought back instant reminders of reports that emerged days after winning the 2017 final that he wanted to leave the club.

Sixty-third minute substitute Gareth Bale then produced one of the greatest Champions League final goals of all-time when he acrobatically put Real in front, much to the surprise of all those around him, just two minutes after coming on.

As for Karius, who was inconsolable at the final whistle, Klopp was nearly speechless.

No teammate came to console him and he then lay flat out, face to the turf hiding his tears.

Marca's cover said "Unbeatable - Madrid are European champions for a 13th time", while also adding "Cristiano sows doubt [by saying] it has been very nice playing for Madrid".

"It's not about him and the mistakes he might have made, it's about the team".

On Salah, Klopp told BT Sport: "It is unbelievable".

"It's a shame it was in a game like this, after a season like this".

Liverpool lost momentum and relied on an excellent Karius save, pushing away Cristiano Ronaldo's header, just to get to halftime on level terms. Benzema stuck out a right foot, connected and the ball rolled slowly into an unguarded net, leaving Karius to appeal haplessly to the referee for a non-existent foul.

The former Bayern Munich and Germany No.1 has suggested that Ramos elbowed Karius early in the second half, which may have had an impact on his compatriot's concentration later in the game.

The 33-year-old Ronaldo, who became the first player to win five Champions League titles since the competition changed format in 1992, including one with Manchester United, reacted angrily when asked if he was disappointed not to have scored.
