Vinicius Jr got the winner to end Liverpool‘s hopes of winning a seventh European crown.

After the game, an optimistic Klopp told fans to book hotels in Istanbul, the venue for this year’s final.

He said: “Where’s it [the final] next year? Istanbul? Book the hotel.”

However, Liverpool’s hopes of being in the final were shattered after they were thrashed by their opponents from last year’s final , Real Madrid, but in the round of 16.

Liverpool raced into a two-goal lead but ended up being on the receiving end of a 5-2 loss.

The Reds will go to the Bernabeu on March 15 hoping to recover the three-goal deficit.

But fans are already mocking the Liverpool manager’s comments from last May, asking whether getting a refund on the hotel is possible.

One said: “Hahaha, can you refund hotel tickets or not?”
