    Real Madrid president Florentino Perez admits he is envious of the Liverpool fans who support their team even in defeat.

    Los Blancos supporters are known for being very difficult to please and regularly show their disproval by booing their players.

    Cristiano Ronaldo once hit out at the jeers from fans, who sometimes targeted even him when he was at the Bernabeu.

    "The only thing I ask is that they don't whistle me because I give my best in every game," said the Portuguese back in 2017. "Although I don't always score, I always work hard and try to help Real Madrid."

    The La Liga giants played Liverpool in the Champions League back in 2014, and travelled to Merseyside for the group fixture at Anfield.

    They ran out 3-0 winners over the Reds and Perez was stunned by the response from the Liverpool fans who clapped their players off the pitch after the final whistle.

    Speaking to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, Perez said: "Cristiano once said: 'Why do they whistle?'. We can't whistle. The players belong to us, there has to be a complicity with them.

    "They're great professionals and they don't deserve it. I can't side with that part of the fan-base that boos it's own players.

    "People were applauding at Anfield when we beat them 0-3. I envy that kind of atmosphere and that which we have the best.
