Maglia Calcio Bayer Leverkusen, Magliette Calcio Bambini Liverpool
Dayot Upamecano headed into RB Leipzig’s Champions League clash against Liverpool with a reputation as one of the world’s best defenders.
Yet a horror display which saw him regularly dragged out of position and all-round poor play on the ball allowed Liverpool to run out easy 2-0 winners at the Puskas Arena in Budapest following goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
On Sunday, news of the France international’s move to Bayern Munich was confirmed after the German champions triggered his £38.5million release clause that will go through at the end of the season.
Previously the 22-year-old had been linked with a host of Premier League clubs including Liverpool as well as Manchester United.
And supporters were quick to mock the notion of the transfer links as they watched Upamecano, who while was not at direct fault for any of Liverpool’s goal, put in a far from convincing performance.
Many viewers of the last-16 tie were left wondering what all the fuss was about while posting on social media, considering his standing within the game.
