Rio Ferdinand’s message to Jurgen Klopp after Liverpool Champions League defeat

Liverpool were completely snuffed out in their Champions League group stage clash against Serbian outfit Red Star Belgrade on Tuesday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were completely not in the race, registering their first shot on target until the 71st minute.

The Reds suffered a shocking 2-nil defeat with goalscorer Milan Pavkov’s brace being the difference between both sides.

The Reds were tame going up front and couldn’t put some teeth in their offensive launch, as they showed great signs of struggle at Serbia.

Red Star had the bulk of possession in the first half, and came close to scoring through Vujadin Savic, before the air cracked with soars when Pavkov’s header found the back of the net, putting his side in the lead inside 21 minutes.

Shortly afterwards, he whipped a powerful effort home, to make it 2-0 before the break, leaving Liverpool on the edge of a fallout from the competition.

Boss Jurgen Klopp remarked it was an awful day for his team, blaming their slack and sloppy display to missing their “mojo”.

United legend Río Ferdinand disagrees and took a dig at the Premier League manager after the disappointing loss, on his Instagram handle.

Ferdinand compared his stats with counterparts Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Antonio Conte, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho since 2014, on Instagram, and the German tactician trailed behind all five.

It is the first time the Reds have lost three consecutive Champions League away games.
