Liverpool shortlist two major players as Loris Karius replacement

Liverpool suffered a 3-1 defeat in the Kiev at the hands of 13-time European champions Real Madrid after Karius succumbed to two crucial errors in the game.

Giggs feels Bale is capable of making an impact in the tie: "Every time he is involved, he makes a difference". "And I need to be starting". "These goals cost us the title, basically".

Liverpool have made an enquiry to Barcelona regarding the availability of their goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

The Wales international's first goal was sublime and in many ways reminiscent of his manager Zinedine Zidane's goal which won the 2002 final, but his second was pure comedy as Karius let a 30-yard strike slip through his fingers.

Reports today from Spain suggest that Liverpool are willing to pay the huge £100 million release clause to bring Jan Oblak to Anfield. If they set their sights on signing the star of this summer's World Cup, odds are (again, presuming it's not the Argentina number 10) they will end up getting their man.

Daniel Ricciardo has labelled his performance across the entire Monaco Grand Prix weekend as the best of his Formula One career. The incident happened when Charles Leclerc shunted his Sauber into the back of Brendon Hartley's Toro Rosso.

However, Germany head coach Joachim Loew, now in northern Italy for a World Cup training camp, sent Karius, who has yet to play an worldwide, a text message of support following Saturday's final.

With Karius likely to start next season out of Jurgen Klopp's plans, he has been offered the chance to leave the limelight and the pressure and "rediscover his self-belief" playing in Italy's lower leagues.

For Zidane, victory in Ukraine puts the former France great in an elite field alongside Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley as a three-time European Cup victor. The club is one of the rise - they were this season promoted to the third tier of Italian football.

The incredible play of Gareth Bale, Ronaldo's numerous trophies and a serious injury of Liverpool player Mohamed Salah after a clash with Sergio Ramos became the main topics on Twitter after the eventful Champions League match.
