Mia Khalifa offers Liverpool custodian Loris Karius shoulder to cry on

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale's brace atop a fortunate Karim Benzema goal helped Real Madrid to a 3-1 victory over Liverpool and their third UEFA Champions League trophy in three years. I didn't see him, maybe he's in the hospital at the moment for an X-ray. If they set their sights on signing the star of this summer's World Cup, odds are (again, presuming it's not the Argentina number 10) they will end up getting their man.

Bale might not have played as many games during that time but if his display in Kiev is anything to go by, the thundering attacker could make all the difference for us.

Karius was seen lying face down on the pitch after the final whistle.

As he and his teammates later made their way back to the dressing room, Jamie Carragher went out of his way to console the distraught 'keeper.

There was little to be said after the game to Karius, who apologized for his errors.

The defeat was yet another at a European final for Klopp after losing with Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich in the Champions League in 2013 and with Liverpool against Sevilla in the Europa League in 2016.

Salah has enjoyed a brilliant first season at Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and has forced his way on to Real Madrid's radar. But you know we always managed to stick together in these hard times.

The club value him greatly and despite the fact that they intend to keep hold of him, they know that his comments after the final and performance in it have raised his value exponentially, with the Premier League being a possible destination.

That season he also lost the League Cup final with Liverpool against Manchester City.

That would be a shift from the Liverpool manager, who has shown throughout his career how he prefers to stand by his players, even more so at their lowest ebb.

"People will point fingers at the goalkeeper but we win together, we lose together".

"They need to play better, there's no doubt about that, and maybe they need some better players".
