Former Nottingham Forest goalkeeper Mark Crossley has delivered a comical verdict to the conclusion of the Carabao Cup Final between Liverpool and Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were crowned champions after a nail-biting penalty shootout. Kepa Arrizabalaga blasted his spot-kick over the bar to give Liverpool an 11-10 victory.

Crossley was renowned for saving penalties during his time as a player. He remained the only man to save a Matt Le Tissier penalty throughout his career.

Forest were lucky to have Crossley for several years. He was a remarkable servant to the football club and showcased some superb goalkeeping throughout his time on Trentside.

My Europa League Predictions.

Liverpool have now won another trophy under Klopp. The German doesn’t have the best record in cup finals and he will be pleased to tick another one off in English football.

The Reds thought they might have won it in normal time. Virgil van Dijk was in an offside position, however, and that saw Joel Matip’s effort ruled out.

Liverpool were the better side throughout. They did, however, find Edouard Mendy inspired between the Chelsea posts, however, and that led to frustration.

What has former Forest man Crossley said about the Carabao Cup Final?

Crossley is a modest man and clearly, he’s one who likes to have a laugh and a joke on social media.

He believed he would have saved six of the penalties that were taken during the clash between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Forest fans would probably back him up on that too, given that he often came up trumps for the Reds during shootouts.

Crossley is one of Forest’s best goalkeepers of all time and supporters have fond memories of ‘Big Norm’ strutting his stuff at the City Ground.
