Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian has revealed how his teammate James Milner let him celebrate with the Super Cup trophy privately.

Jurgen Klopp’s celebrated 5-4 win on penalties over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup back in August.

Adrian was in net for the Reds as Alisson Becker suffered an injury and couldn’t help the team.

“Everyone met at my parents’ house – my wife, my closest friends, my in-laws,” Adrian told BBC Sport.

“Everything happened so fast that they didn’t even have the chance to fly to Turkey for the match, we couldn’t arrange it. Receiving that video call and seeing tears of happiness from home was unforgettable.”

“James [Milner] told me to take the trophy with me for the night,” he added. “It took me several seconds to realise he really meant it. Who better than me, he said. So I agreed.

“Getting into the room with the Super Cup, my first title. Their faces. Awesome.”
