Liverpool turned out 2-0 winners in the first leg of the quarter-final against Porto. Fans were ecstatic after two early goals from Naby Keita and Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool the edge in the tie.
The Liverpool fans had given due respect to a real veteran of the Champions League when they stood in unison to applaud the Spaniard.
However, the Porto goalkeeper and ex-Madridista chose not to return the respect shown to him by fans and spoke out against Liverpool players like Salah and Alexander Arnold. In addition to his post-match comments, he took to twitter and posted images of Liverpool players.
Soy 100 por 100 optimista!! Teniendo en cuenta los resultados de octavos de @ChampionsLeague no podemos pensar que la eliminatoria está perdida. Falta el juego en Dragao y vamos a luchar por pasar a las semifinales. Gracias a todos los portistas por el apoyo en Liverpool!! pic.twitter.com/3w1xst6ULP

So naturally, Reds fans didn’t take too long to take back all the request they had showed him:
After the respect we showed you, you show us none. Lost your class!!
