Liverpool may have rested several key players last night and may have lost the Champions League game against Real Madrid 1-0, but there was a positive performance from one of the club’s most experienced defenders; Kolo Toure.
Toure rolled back the years as he kept the Madrid attack nice and quiet, making it difficult for them to find the usual space and freedom they usually enjoy in and around the opponent’s penalty area.
Toure was one of the only Liverpool players on show to give Brendan Rodgers a serious selection dilemma ahead of this weekend’s game against Chelsea, because he played well against arguably the best attack in Europe.
Needless to say Twitter went mad as Toure did his thing in the Bernabeu, with several fans create memes in tribute to the defender, especially for the way he kept former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo out of the game.
Take a look at some of the best efforts below.
