Victorious Valverde Couldn't Resist Dig At Andy Robertson

Victorious Valverde Couldn't Resist Dig At Andy Robertson
By Luke Delaney

Federico Valverde has become an integral part of this Real Madrid side over the past few years since breaking through from the B team back in 2017. The Uruguayan's versatility has made him a favourite under Carlo Ancelotti and it was his assist that led to Vinicius Jr's match winning goal against Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Valverde started the final on the right wing where he was tasked with keeping Andy Robertson's attacking output to a minimum.

Speaking after the final, Valverde was celebrating with his son on his shoulders and said that it's easier to mark the Scottish international than to watch his son.

"Watching my son is harder work than marking Robertson"

It was an inch perfect cross that found Vinicius Jr at the back post which sealed a 14th European Cup for Real Madrid. Valverde has now said his pass was initially supposed to be a shot.

" I got close to the box, I shot the ball, it ended up being a tremendous pass and Vinicius made it look even better," said Valverde

Robertson on the treatment of Liverpool fans

It was a tough evening for Robertson and his Liverpool team as a whole, but after the game the full back told reporters about the struggles his friends had getting into the game after the shambolic management of the event by UEFA and the French police.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Robertson said;

"Somebody told one of my mates that he's got a fake ticket, which I can assure it definitely wasn't cause he got it obviously through me.

"Then obviously the French police decided to throw tear gas on fans and families and things like that so look it's not been well organised."

Robertson was named in the Champions League Team of the Tournament so Valverde's views on the Liverpool man are certainly not shared by everyone.

Since then, Liverpool have asked any fans that were in Paris for the game to fill out a report on the difficulties that they encountered as part of an investigation into the horrific scenes and treatment of fans.

Over 5,000 responses have already been lodged and Liverpool Chief Executive Billy Hogan has said he is "horrified" at some of the responses that have been shared.

"I’ve spent time reviewing some of the information and, honestly, I’m horrified by the way some men, women, children, able bodied, less able bodied, have been indiscriminately treated over the course of Saturday. I’ve read a number of stories of absolutely horrific experiences leaving the stadium as well – crimes being committed, muggings taking place. Nobody should experience what our fans experienced both before or after the match. "

There's no doubt that UEFA and French authorities have a number of questions to be answered but only time will tell on whether action will be taken.
