UEFA Champions League: It's curtains for Liverpool!
Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League yesterday after a 1-0 bitter win in Hungary over Debrecen. Fair deal to be honest, as the Pool have not been convincing this year. In fact they have been tragic. Buying Kyrgiakos, out of the CL and 8th in the league in November. I'm sure old Rafa hoped they would pull off another miracle like previous years and qualify. Not this time Rafael. Your unbelievable luck is out. It's curtains now! The road to Madrid becomes the road to Hamburg where the Europa League final is played.
What's amazing though is that Rafael still has his job. Sources from the club confirm that the manager still has the confidence of the board. I suspect though that if the Pool fail to qualify for CL football next season fat Rafa will get the sack and return to sunny Spain.
