Luis Suarez trolls Real Madrid after Ajax defeat
The former Liverpool striker took to Twitter after the game to react to Real Madrid’s 4-1 defeat by Ajax; the team he played for before moving to Anfield.
Suarez quote tweeted the Dutch club’s official account confirming the result, writing: “Congratulations, I have always been a fan of Ajax.”
The forward isn’t the only Barcelona-connected star to comment on Los Blancos’ shock last-16 defeat at the Bernabeu.
The former captain of the Catalan club Carlos Puyol simply posted: “OMG,” alongside celebratory and shocked face emoji’s after the match.
Real Madrid went into the tie with a 2-1 advantage from the first leg and were favourites to progress to the quarter-finals at home.
But Ajax stunned the Spanish giants from the first minute to the last, battering them 4-1 to win 5-3 on aggregate.
The win sealed Ajax a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2003.
It was also the first time the Amsterdam-based side has won a Champions League knock-out tie in 22 years.
