GREAT πŸ‘ Champions League Italian job is perfect chance for Liverpool to show defiance after tough start

 

Liverpool return to Champions League football this week and a difficult start to the season is not about to get any easier

 

Liverpool’s latest European adventure gets underway this week as the group stage of the Champions League returns to television screens and stadiums across the continent.

 

The Reds retake their place in UEFA’s elite competition with unhappy memories of last season’s final – both on and off the pitch – still lingering in the mind. What could have been the greatest season in the club’s illustrious history ended up being ‘just’ a double domestic cup triumph, although that doesn’t really tell even half the story.

 

But for Real Madrid, Jurgen Klopp could be a triple European Cup-winner with Liverpool. Like a modern-day Bob Paisley. But the cruel Euro gods dealt him a different hand that has resulted in one successful big ears lift out of three.

 

The natural response after the Paris final – a match that Liverpool were favourites to win – is not to worry, we’ll come back next year and do it all over again. Such was the team’s apparent strength in the first half of 2022 and right the way through the Champions League campaign, it would not have been fanciful to suggest that Klopp’s mentality monsters are more than capable of stepping out at the ‘infamous’ Ataturk Stadium on June 10 next year to attempt to lift a seventh European Cup in the same stadium that they somehow managed to secure their fifth.
