LeBron James Was Booed Relentlessly During The Champions League Final

As a minority owner of Liverpool, LeBron James decided to pull up to the Champions League Final between the Reds and Real Madrid to show his support.

But it seems his cameo appearance didn't go down too well with some of the fans in Paris.

The NBA megastar was seen watching the game from the comfort of a swanky executive VIP box in the Stade de France.

Donning a fancy suit, accompanied with a Reds shirt over his shoulders, it wasn't long before those inside the stadium began turning their attention to the Los Angeles Lakers main man.

A number of videos have since surfaced showing spectators chanting "Michael Jordan is better" in LeBron's direction.

It's difficult to say exactly which set of supporters were behind the brutal banter, but with LeBron having large stakes in Liverpool, you can probably hazard a wild guess at who the jeering was coming from.

In one clip, LeBron takes the stick on the chin by simply chuckling to himself before waving his hand in the fans' direction to invite more comments.

In seperate footage, LeBron's face appears on the big screen inside the Stade de France, sparking a chorus of boos around the famous Parisian arena.


And it was the Los Blancos fans who go the last laugh too with Real clinching an emphatic victory thanks to a single goal from Vinicius Jr.

It's the fourteenth time Madrid have lifted the famous jug-eared trophy – the most out of any team in the competition's history.

As for LeBron's Reds, for a team that had their sights set on a historic quadruple just a few weeks ago, they now finish the season with just two domestic titles in the FA and Carabao Cup.
