“What a feeling”, ” See you all in Kiev” – Liverpool players react to reaching Champions League final

3 May 2018

Liverpool qualified for the Champions League final on Wednesday and the players couldn’t contain their delight after the game.


There were 11 heroes in red at Stadio Olimpico, as Jurgen Klopp‘s side progressed, despite losing 4-2 on a nerve-shredding night.

Their work ethic was magnificent throughout, and Real Madrid now stand between themselves and glory in Kiev on May 26.

The players cut joyous figures on the pitch after the final whistle, celebrating with the fans on arguably the biggest night of all of their respective careers.

They then took to social media to continue the party, with some brilliant posts keeping us entertained as we drank in reaching an eighth European Cup final.

Captain Jordan Henderson is doing a tremendous job in the role, and his decision to bring a banner in support of stricken fan Sean Cox onto the pitch was a special gesture.

Henderson is now just 90 minutes away from being the fifth Red to lift the European Cup, after Emlyn Hughes, Phil Thompson, Graeme Souness and Steven Gerrard…

Mohamed Salah may not have had his greatest night at the office, but he was loving life after the match, with the travelling Reds in great voice behind him.

Sadio Mane was arguably Man of the Match, scoring the opener and generally causing Roma’s defence all sorts of problems.

??what a night ????

Virgil van Dijk produced a peerless display at the heart of the defence, and he shared a great snap of him celebrating.

Andrew Robertson was superb yet again, and the Scot was another who shared a photo of he and his teammates celebrating with the away supporters.

Loris Karius was an assured figure as he continues to go from strength to strength, and he quoted the already legendary “Allez! Allez! Allez!” song on Twitter.

Gini Wijnaldum finally scored his first-ever away goal for Liverpool, with the 27-year-old choosing quite an occasion to end the drought.

James Milner has already become one of the greatest social media contributors in history, and his dry sense of humour again came to the fore.

Roberto Firmino led the line expertly in his own unique way, with the Brazilian one of many to post those on-pitch photos that will live with fans forever.

Simon Mignolet, Joe Gomez, Nathaniel Clyne and Alberto Moreno may not have started on the night – Clyne was the only one to feature at all – but the team spirit Klopp has created was highlighted by fringe players expressing such delight.

There were also former Liverpool players jumping for joy long into the evening……

Fu***n Get in lads ?????next stop KYIV????
