Arturo Vidal’s bold pre-match statement became the centre of discussion as Liverpool players were seen discussing the quarter final clash between Bayern Munich and Barcelona in their preseason training.
A clip from Liverpool’s training session made rounds on Twitter as goalkeeper Alisson Becker seemingly mocked Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal for his comment before the heavy defeat against Bayern Munich.
They are playing against Barca, not against teams from Bundesliga. They are playing against the best team in the worldVidal in his pre-match press conference before facing Munich.
The Brazilian goalkeeper was spotted having a laugh and can be heard saying “but did you see Vidal, Vidal said before? He said ‘we are not the Bundesliga…” and then the clip cuts to Jordan Henderson having a sip of water.
Without a doubt, the outcome of the quarter-final has turned out to be a nightmare for Barcelona and especially Vidal for having a go at his former club.
The Premier League champions are busy with their pre-season training in Austria and will play two friendlies behind closed doors before they come back to Wembley on 29th August for the Community Shield.
