Fans poke fun at Jurgen Klopp’s ‘book your hotels’ promise after Napoli shambles

Football fans have poked fun at Jurgen Klopp's 'book your hotels' promise after Napoli shredded Liverpool in the Champions League.

Despite reaching the final of Europe's premier competition last term, the Reds were hit for four on Matchday 1 of the new season, as Napoli totally dismantled the Reds' shaky backline. 1-0 up inside the opening five minutes, the Serie A outfit had extended their lead to three by the half-time interval as well as seeing a Victor Osimhen penalty well-saved by Alisson.

Luciano Spalletti's side then bagged a fourth immediately after the restart before the mood inside the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona was slightly soured by Luis Dias' consolation goal.

Following defeat to Real Madrid in last season's competition, Jurgen Klopp vowed to supporters that Liverpool would bounce back, urging them to already book hotels for the 2023 final in Istanbul.

"Where's the final next year? Istanbul?" asked Klopp in the immediate aftermath of the 1-0 loss. When given a positive response on the location he added: "Book the hotel."

But now rival fans have taken aim at Klopp's boastful claim after the 4-1 humbling to Napoli.

"Yes, book a hotel in Istanbul for your games against Fenerbahce in the Europa League," jibbed one supporter. "Klopp – book your hotels now," harked a second when Zielinksi netted Napoli's fourth shortly after half-time.

Whilst a third quipped: "Klopp said last season 'Book your flight and hotel to Istanbul' my guy doesn’t know that he’s holding Europa soon. He hasn’t been the same since Madrid ended him."
