Jurgen Klopp told ‘cancel the booking’ after Liverpool boss’ hotel comment

Jurgen Klopp has been told to "cancel the booking" after the Liverpool boss' hotel comment.

The Reds were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid on Wednesday night as Karim Benzema's goal sealed a 1-0 win on the night and a 6-2 aggregate victory. Fans have now been quick to remind Klopp of comments he made following Liverpool's loss to Real Madrid in last season's final in Paris.

During his post-match interview back in May, he was asked about returning to the final in 2023, to which he replied: "Where's it next year? Istanbul? Book the hotel."

Wednesday's defeat has now seen rival supporters tell him to cancel his booking, with one writing: "Better cancel that booking Jurgen."

Another said: "Don't worry. The hotel didn't confirm the reservation. Too optimistic they say." A third added: "Book it for the Conference League final next year instead."

The reaction continued with another fan commenting: "Hope Jurgen had a free cancellation." Meanwhile, one more wrote: "Better cancel it, rubbish."

Klopp's hopes of a fourth Champions League final as Liverpool boss had already appeared slim after the first leg at Anfield last month as Real Madrid came from behind to romp to a 5-2 victory.

Despite Carlo Ancelotti denying that the tie was over after that match, Klopp admitted he had given up on reaching the last eight following the first leg.

Speaking after that match, he explained: "I think Carlo thinks the tie is over – and I think it as well in the moment, but in three weeks… it's how it is in these moments, the closer you get to the game the bigger our chances become and the less likely it is the tie is over.

"Tonight, with the 5-2 and you see the game, they are pretty good in counter-attacking and we have to score three goals there and take some risk, so that could be a bit tricky.

"It is really not even in my mind. We go there, I can say it now already, and try to win the game. If that is possible or not, I don't know now but that's what we will try and from there we will see."
