UCL: It’s the end – Thierry Henry reacts to Real Madrid’s 5-2 win over Liverpool

Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has claimed Liverpool are coming to the end of an era.

Henry was speaking on CBS Sport, after Jurgen Klopp’s men threw away a two-goal lead to lose 5-2 to Real Madrid in the Champions League last-16 first leg on Tuesday.

The Reds went ahead through Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah goals, but braces from Vinicius Junior and Karim Benzema either side of a bullet header from Eder Militao saw the LaLiga champions coast to victory.

Henry says he has been concerned about Liverpool’s defence for a while and that the team is now too fragile.

“Yes, Alisson made a mistake but they didn’t bail him out. Thibaut Courtois makes a mistake – that’s a big team, they bailed him out.

“They are fragile and some things need to change. I don’t think Jurgen Klopp needs to go but some players don’t have the level anymore to play for Liverpool. It happens to the best, it happened to me. It’s the end of an era,” Henry said.
