A number of Liverpool supporters were left unimpressed with Jurgen Klopp’s substitutions in the disappointing 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid.
The Reds produced an insipid performance on Tuesday night, losing comfortably to the La Liga giants and seeing their Champions League hopes damaged.
Madrid were comfortably the better team throughout the quarter-final first leg, and while Liverpool improved after the break, they were never at the races on the night.
Klopp didn’t have a good evening, and his decision to start Naby Keita over Thiago backfired badly, with the former hooked before half-time because he was struggling so much. It was what he did after that which has left fans bemused though.
The Liverpool manager brought off Ozan Kabak and Diogo Jota in the second half – arguably two of the better performers – with Xherdan Shaqiri and Roberto Firmino replacing them.

These Liverpool fans were unimpressed with those choices from Klopp, taking to Twitter to criticise him.
“Why does Wijnaldum even get to play 90 minutes? I’m shocked”
“Klopp are you serious?!?“
“Is Klopp drunk!”
“Sorry. Don’t get this one“
“He brings Jota off, the only player who looks like contributing anything”
“How has Klopp’s decision making been so bad this season? This will has effectively put our season in huge doubt now”
“Astounded Shaq has come on I must say!“
