He said: “It was a difficult game for Liverpool. They had already done the job they set out to do, before even coming to Istanbul.
“They are a very good team. It is difficult to judge whether they can go all the way – but with their best players, they can win the tournament.
“I would certainly like to see that, because I like Rafa Benitez and admire his teams. But there are some very good teams left in the tournament.”
