Alisson questions Liverpool attitude after Champions League exit

Alisson Becker questioned the attitude of some of his teammates in the aftermath of Liverpool’s elimination from the Champions League.

Liverpool continued their strange performances this season as they suffered yet another blow. Their elimination from the Champions League will ensure the Reds finish the campaign without winning any trophies. It’s in total contrast from last season when they were favourites to win the quadruple.

Despite that, Liverpool only won the League Cup and FA Cup, while coming close to clinching the Premier League and Champions League crowns. Yet, it has been a complete contrast to those performances, as the club are struggling to finish in the top four.

After a tremendous result in the Premier League against Manchester United, where Liverpool put seven goals past their rivals, they lost to Bournemouth. Fans were baffled at the idea of winning against the Red Devils and losing to a relegation-threatened side.

Then again, these have been the patterns for Liverpool this season. Alisson Becker has now questioned the attitude of his teammates as the Brazilian expected the team to put up a fight in Madrid as his comments appeared on TNT Sports via Sport Witness.

Alisson said, “I think that every moment of the season had its reason and today we can say that it was the attitude of the players on the field. Perhaps because of the first game, which was a very elastic score. Coming here, beating Real Madrid away from home, it’s hard to… speaking as a human being now, it’s hard for you to create that expectation of qualifying,”

“Now, man, I’m wearing the Liverpool shirt, I’m going to play against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu. The least I have to do is give my best. So that’s my thought, I believe I did my best, I leave here with a clear head. And now speaking as a team, we have much more to do. And this season of ups and downs, every moment had its reason.

“We had injuries, I think we don’t like to talk about it in football. ‘We’re not going to use it as an excuse, but the injuries certainly hurt us. Now we only have one player left out, so that’s no longer an excuse. It’s been like this for over a month now.

“We had a fantastic, incredible game against United. Soon after, an inexplicable game against Bournemouth. And against Real Madrid, it’s not that we played badly, but we didn’t play enough to tie the game. There was a lack of attitude, a lot was lacking on our part.”

Liverpool will not play until after the international break and the three weeks in the background should help Jurgen Klopp revitalise his squad. They will face Manchester City and Arsenal at the start of April. A bad result in those games will end their hopes of making it into the top four.
