Former Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong has criticised the Liverpool defence for their lack of communication in their 3-1 defeat at Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

“So this is everything to do with communication.” Liverpool will look to amend their defensive errors when they welcome Real Madrid to Anfield for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on 14th April.

“He should say to the central defender, ‘watch your back’, even though the central defender doesn’t see him, I’m [Alexander-Arnold] responsible to close that gap.

Real Madrid gained the upper hand in their Champions League quarter-final tie against Liverpool as they dished out a 3-1 defeat to the Reds in the first leg.

“If Trent Alexander-Arnold sees that ball coming he’s the last man in that position on that line.

De Jong singled out Reds right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold against Real Madrid as he insisted that the young full-back’s lack of communication and awareness led to Vinicius grabbing the first goal for Los Blancos.

The Liverpool defence’s solidity was called into question after giving away two clumsy goals in the first half against Real Madrid with the lack of communication in the Reds’ backline being highlighted by former Manchester City midfielder De Jong.
