UCL: You’re a disgrace to Champions League – Chelsea legend slams Villarreal after 2-0 defeat to Liverpool


 Villarreal have been branded a disgrace to UEFA Champions League after their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the first leg of their semi final clash on Wednesday night.

The Yellow Submarines, who had defeated the likes of Bayern Munich and Juventus in previous stages of the competition this season, held out for 53 minutes at Anfield.

However, the Reds eased to a two-goal advantage thanks to an own-goal from Pervis Estupinan and a Sadio Mane strike two minutes later.

And Chelsea legend, Jason Cundy delivered a scathing rant about the performance of the Spanish side, branding them a ‘disgrace to the Champions League’.

Unai Emery’s side had just one shot and could not force a save from Reds goalkeeper Alisson, who was on holiday for the majority of the 90 minutes.

Cundy compares Liverpool’s victory to Tyson Fury’s knockout win over Dillian Whyte on Saturday.

“First of all, congratulations to Liverpool,” he began.

“Cruise control. There’s not a world that exists right now where Villarreal can trouble Liverpool at any price.

“Liverpool were totally dominant. In some ways, it was too easy for them. I don’t know what I’ve just watched – but Villarreal are a disgrace.

“That is a disgrace. UEFA must be watching that and thinking, ‘We are in big trouble’

“If that’s what’s getting to the semi-final and facing English teams… Liverpool did not get out of second gear. That Villarreal side there was like playing the last group game against a side that’s not even good enough to drop into the Europa League.

“It was shocking. Liverpool are brilliant – but that was a disgrace to the Champions League. There are players who haven’t even broken a sweat in a Champions League semi-final.

“West Ham would give them a better game. Everton gave them a better game. I’ve got no idea how Villarreal have made it this far.”
