Karius stood in front of the terrace judges in the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, pleading for forgiveness after two catastrophic mistakes defined the Champions League final.

The Belgian global believes Karius is mentally equipped to cope and expects him to be fine when Liverpool return to action next season.

Why do you think Los Blancos have been unstoppable in Europe?

"Great emotions. To lift three Champions League trophies with this club, this team is magnificent", said Real's Zinedine Zidane, who became the first coach to win Europe's top trophy in three consecutive years. "I judged it wrong and it went in".

'It was a dramatic final with incredible goals, saves, tackles and heroes - it truly was a rollercoaster of emotion, ' he said after watching the final alongside his former team-mate Morientes. 'My Liverpool boys fought hard and I'm proud of them.

"No-one makes a mistake on objective", Gerrard said.

Lovren knows Liverpool's run to the final was unexpected, but he says it underlined their emerging quality under Klopp. It's even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time.

The midfielder rightly concluded: "The Liverpool supporters are Europe's best even if this season the team wasn't".

The newspaper said Karius and his family are the subjects of disturbing hate messages after mistakes he made during the match against Real Madrid were credited with LFC's defeat. The manager is always positive.

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has tweeted that he is "confident" he will be available for the World Cup finals with Egypt this summer, after his shoulder injury in the Champions League final.

"It was also a big point when Mo was injured, it was a big change for us", he said.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has mocked him for crying as he left the pitch, claiming the only time he ever shed a tear in a football game was when he was 12.

"We have to accept that".
