Liverpool defender Andy Robertson said the team were ‘devastated’ after their Champions League final loss to Real Madrid.
While Jurgen Klopp’s men impressed with their attacking commitment and brought a man-of-the-match performance from Belgian ‘keeper Thibaut Courtois, it was not enough to overcome Vinicius Jr.’s matchwinner in the second half.
While manager Klopp was already looking forward to next season, the Scottish international said his teammates were disconsolate.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "The dressing room is quiet, devastated. That is what happens when you don't win finals.
"We had chances, came up against an unbelievable keeper. Being honest though, we could have played better. In the second half we didn't start great and they got hold of the game.”
Like his German manager, he pointed out Real Madrid’s tactics gave them the upper hand.
