CRISTIANO RONALDO had the last laugh after Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp played a prank behind his back ahead of the 2018 Champions League final.
The German had begun his side’s team meeting ahead of the clash in Kiev and intended to lighten the mood and relieve some nerves.
Real Madrid were experienced in finals, having won the competition three times in the previous four seasons as Klopp posed in a pair of Cristiano Ronaldo’s underwear, stuffing his top into the briefs.
The Liverpool squad were amused by what was going on, after this was supposed to be a serious discussion ahead of the biggest match of most of their careers.
Georginio Wijnaldum has now revealed all on the incident, explaining how it helped him and his team-mates.
“We saw he was wearing the boxer shorts of Cristiano Ronaldo,” Georginio Wijnaldum told The Athletic.
