Bayern Munich pushed aside and knocked out by Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk towered beyond everyone to nod Liverpool 2-1 ahead, whilst a brilliant pass from Mohamed Salah to Mane saw him head home in the final ten minutes to seal victory.

"We don't draw up a season and say the best way to go through it is to go out of all the cup competitions early".

"In both games maybe we risked too little and maybe that is why we are out". "I knew we had a chance and the boys made it happen".

The second leg of a Champions League last 16 is probably the match you don't want to be dropping that clanger in.

'I really think this club deserves to have awareness again.

Van Dijk sat out the first leg through suspension and, once again, proved an influential presence on his return.

"He is so young, already so mature, really strong, all good". Maybe we were trying to play defensive and trying to score goals and maybe that was wrong and today Liverpool were better.

"In the first half we scored an outstanding goal - wow - and by half-time time everybody knew it would not be easy for Munich, and that is important information for the opponent after they were happy with a 0-0 at Anfield".

"It's a hard place to come, not too many teams have wins on their card at Munich".

"I'm not like this". It's not sweeter for me because it's Bayern. We have a lot to improve, a lot to learn, but we are back and I like that very much'.

Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, now trailing Premier League leaders Manchester City by one point, have displayed somewhat shakier form of late and won only three of their last eight games-despite being unbeaten in 10. That doesn't bring me anything. "It's just a good moment for Liverpool, so let's enjoy that".
