Liverpool have seen their European run this season cut devastatingly short as an Adrian blunder in goal set Atletico Madrid up for a superb comeback. The Spaniard has taken to Twitter to express how he’s feeling and it’s got a lot of Reds talking.
It took two legs and 94 minutes but Liverpool finally took hold of their battle against Atletico Madrid with both hands. Reds fans celebrated in the first half of extra time on Wednesday after Liverpool not only looked to be going through, but Roberto Firmino ended his Anfield goal drought.
That is, until just three minutes later when Adrian mimicked Loris Karius’ blunder in Kiev. Indeed, the back-up goalkeeper gifted the ball straight to João Félix who capitalised on the error and set up Marco Llorente’s first goal of the night.
More heartbreak unfolded after Adrian’s howler set the tone for Atletico’s hunger to see the game through. Two more goals came and Liverpool were sent crashing out of the competition they are currently reigning champions of.
Do you blame Adrian for the Champions League exit?
Fans are reacting to Adrian’s latest tweet, with many supporting the Spaniard in this tough time while others are at the end of their tether with his costly mistakes.
Get out of my club, you West Ham reject!

If you have any morals, don’t ever play for LFC again, rip up your contract. We don’t want to see you ever again

Don’t worry, Adrian. You are part of one of the greatest teams of the last 30 years and this is just football. You win some and you lose some. We will be back next year! YNWA!
