Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita had an awful evening at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano.
Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp substituted midfielder Naby Keita during the first half.
Come the end of the match, Klopp was brutally honest when explaining why Keita was substituted. Klopp stated that Keita was “not in the game”.
Players are only substituted in the first half if they are either injured or having a shocker. The footage below was provided by Empire of the Kop.
