Liverpool centre-back Kolo Toure managed to keep Cristiano Ronaldo quiet for 90 minutes in Liverpool’s 1-0 defeat against defending champions Real Madrid at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium. Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score for Real Madrid last night for the first time in 13 matches, thanks to the one and only Kolo Toure. Kolo Toure won all his tackles, made 6 clearances, seven blocks and one interception.
Kolo Toure himself was proud of his performance against the European giants Real Madrid.
“I know we lost but I am very happy because we played a really good game,” Toure said.
“At end of the day everyone worked hard and showed so much determination.
“We had a lot of players out there who haven’t played many games this season but we showed what a good squad we have.
“It doesn’t matter what players play here, they will give 100%. You have to be ready and we showed that.
“As a team, we worked so hard and I am really proud of the boys. We could have got a draw out of it.”

Kolo Touré is arguably our best centre-back at this stage. Try thinking about that for 5 minutes without pulling your eyes out.

Haha this picture is great. Ronaldo couldn’t get past #KoloToure & it seems he’s stuck in his pocket as well.
Irina Shayk must be waiting for Kolo tonight.
