Marcos Llorente has posted a picture of his dog via his official Instagram handle and tagged it ‘Anfield’ after his brace for Atletico Madrid helped knock holders Liverpool out in the champions league round of 16.
On Friday, April 3, the 25-year-old former Real Madrid player found a way to trigger some humour; at least, if you are not a Liverpool fan, during these perilous times.
The red half of merseyside has gained a reputation as ‘come back kings,’ with events like the ‘Istanbul miracle’ and a queue of others including the Barcelona annihilation in last season’s semifinals rightfully earning them that tag.
Atletico Madrid carried a one – nil advantage to Anfield and everyone must have thought, here we go again when Georginio Wijnaldum leveled matters on aggregate at the 43rd Minute.
Roberto Firmino gave hosts Liverpool an advantage earlier on in extra time before Marcos Llorente struck twice in each of the extra time halves, and Alvaro Morata sealed the deal.
An aggregate score of 4-2 was enough to fly Atlectico Madrid through to the next round.
Marcos Llorente has definitely touched a nerve. The midfielder has not only reminded Liverpool fans of their round of 16 ousting, but equally reminded the football fraternity of the last games played before the Covid-19 pandemic.
