Liverpool captain Henderson: Don't blame Mo! It's hard to talk about

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has rejected criticism of Mohamed Salah after their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

Salah's finishing was criticised in the aftermath as Liverpool dominated the game but failed to find a way past Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Henderson told VG: "It can happen. It was world class save, to be honest. The goalkeeper was brilliant and was named the game's best, that says a lot about the match.

"It's not about Mo, it's about us as a team and today we unfortunately could not score."

"It is still difficult to take it inwards, how the match went in the end. It's hard to talk about. We had three or four very good chances, but Courtois made world-class saves. Hopefully we get a good break to process what happened this season."
