'Snooze fest': Liverpool fans unconcerned with entertainment value after sealing 6th European Cup

'Snooze fest': Liverpool fans unconcerned with entertainment value after sealing 6th European Cup

It won't go down in the history books as one of the most engrossing Champions League finals in history but Liverpool supporters won't be overly-concerned as the city celebrates its sixth triumph in Europe's top club competition.

After coming up just short in their pursuit of a first league title in 29 years, Liverpool's performances this season were ultimately and handsomely rewarded in Madrid on a balmy summer's night inside the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium on Saturday.

Goals at either end of the game from Mo Salah and Divock Origi masked extended lulls sandwiched in between, though the red half of Merseyside won't have any qualms about the manner of their sixth European title.

Tottenham's miraculous escape in the semi-final against Ajax appeared to exhaust their Midas touch entirely, with an obviously unfit Harry Kane offering little opposite the totemic presence of Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of the Liverpool defence, while South Korean ace Son Heung-min also proved ineffective.

The win, Liverpool's fourth against Tottenham this season, earns them their sixth title and moves them into position as the third most successful European club in history, in terms of European Cup success at least.

Just Real Madrid with 13 and AC Milan with 7 have enjoyed more success in club football's most prestigious tournament.

And, as you might expect, several famous faces connected to the club have taken to social media to give their two cents.
