- Jurgen Klopp would not be bothered if Adrian leaves
- The goalkeeper was criticized after Atletico knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League
- Adrian might be allowed to go as soon as his contract ends
Jurgen Klopp is willing to let goalkeeper Adrian leave after his terrible performance in the UEFA Champions league when the Reds were thrashed 4-2 on aggregate by Atletico Madrid.
Atletico knocked the defending champions out of the competition after a 1-0 first leg win back in Spain before a 3-2 win right there in Anfield.
Adrian had a very terrible game in the second leg as club fans single him out as the culprit in the exit.
Liverpool had led 2-0 and look good to moving to the next stage before the 33-year-old made an error which cost the team.
Adrian attempted to kick the ball out, but he played it unto the path of Marcos Llorente who slotted home the crucial away goal that took Diego Simeone’s men through.
To compound Adrian’s woes, Llorente struck yet again to condemn Liverpool to seek at least two goals, a task which proved too much for the Reds.
In search for the goals, they exposed their backline and then Alvaro Morata grabbed the third to shatter Liverpool’s hopes.
Critics condemn Adrian and now his future with the club is now in doubt and Klopp says he will not stop the goalkeeper if he chooses to.
He became the number one choice following Alisson’s hip injury against Bournemouth.
“Do you know what? If anybody ever questions why you spend £65 million on a goalkeeper, you just saw it," Nicol told ESPN FC.
“Liverpool were 2-0 up in the tie in extra-time. They’re through, if they don’t lose a goal, they’re through."
