Jurgen Klopp has named his 24-man squad that will travel to Kiev to take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Obviously, the likes of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been named but youngsters Curtis Jones, Nat Phillips and Rafael Camacho are also included in the party.

Klopp will no doubt be looking for more Salah heroics as Liverpool seek their sixth European Cup victory.

The ‘Egyptian King’ has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season and if he plays a role in Liverpool beating Real Madrid on Saturday, will surely be the favourite to win the Ballon d’Or in January.

However, despite all of his goals this season, he’s not considered the best ‘shooter’ in the squad.

I know, it seems pretty ridiculous, right?

So who is?

Well, according to Liverpool manager Klopp, he believes it’s actually Alberto Moreno.


No, seriously.


In a video where Klopp has to speak about every member of his squad, Klopp gave a very odd answer when asked about Moreno.

“An outstanding football player,” Klopp said.

“I think everybody in the team would say Alberto could play as a No.10, could play the offensive wing, could play the right wing, the left wing.

“He is the best shooter in the squad, unfortunately nobody knows that because it didn’t happen in the games.”

Really, Jurgen?


Well, Liverpool fans could hardly believe what he said:

A player that has scored just three goals at Liverpool since his arrival in 2014 is the best “shooter” in the squad?

Better than Salah, who has broken all sorts of goalscoring records this season?

You might want to rethink that one, Kloppo…
