Liverpool Manager, Jurgen Klopp has singled out Real Madrid defender Marcelo as the club’s weak link ahead of the UEFA Champions League final against his team on Saturday.
According to the bookies, Real Madrid is the favourite going into the final, but Klop says Liverpool is untroubled by that and they are ready to give a fight for the title when they meet in Kiev on Saturday.
“Marcelo is a player who attacks a lot, but he doesn’t defend often. But football is not as easy as saying: ‘If Marcelo joins the attack on the right we leave Salah in that space, because our player will then meet with Sergio Ramos,” Kloop said in an interview on Tv
It’s been said that Real have “been lucky” reaching their third final in a row, but that’s not a view which Klopp subscribes to.
“Everyone says that Real Madrid had luck eliminating Juventus and Bayern, but it is the third year in a row that they are in a final, and the fourth in five years. We will do everything we can in the final and it will be decided in the decisive moments when the opportunity arises,” he added.
