Man Utd fans on Twitter revel in Liverpool's misery
Manchester United supporters on Twitter were quick to pour salt on the wounds of Liverpool fans after their side were beaten 3-1 by Sevilla in the Europa League final in Basel.
With little love lost between the two local rivals, United supporters delighted in witnessing a miserable second half for Liverpool, as Sevilla came from a goal down to seal a third successive Europa League win with a goal from Kevin Gameiro and two more from midfielder Coke.
It means Liverpool will not be playing in any European competition next season, while Sevilla’s win propels them into next season’s Champions League, but there was no sympathy for the plight of Jurgen Klopp’s men for those cruel social media types.
Here is the best - and worst - of the snipes at Liverpool after their night of misery in Switzerland.
To be fair to Moreno, he was Sevilla’s best player tonight.— Liam Canning (@OffsideLiam) May 18, 2016
Moreno is a walking disaster. Positional sense is that he's drunk!!— Alan Cawley (@alancaw) May 18, 2016
5 finals. 5 defeats. That is an atrocious record from Klopp.— Hashbrown (@hesham786) May 18, 2016
So Scousers. Klopp has made it to two plastic finals, took them both serious and lost them both. #genius— Stephen Howson (@MrStephenHowson) May 18, 2016
What a gracious loser Klopp. Berating referee for making correct decisions— James (@writtenoff_mufc) May 18, 2016
At half time = Klopp is a genius!!— The Devils Terrace (@DevilsTerrace) May 18, 2016
70 mins = Brendan Rogers left a really poor team! NOT Klopps fault!!#LFC
There was a note of optimism from Liverpool fansite The Anfield Wrap:
Could be worse lads. Could be Evertonians. Big summer ahead now and some big decisions for the manager. Sure Klopp knows what to do. JG— THE ANFIELD WRAP (@TheAnfieldWrap) May 18, 2016
