Jason Cundy Doubles Down On Villarreal Criticism Claiming He Was 'Proved 100% Right'

Villarreal gave Liverpool a real fright for 45 minutes on Tuesday night, but Jason Cundy claimed it merely proved him right about the Spanish side.

Last week Villarreal didn't manage a single shot on target in their Champions League semi final first leg with Liverpool, as Unai Emery's side tried to stop the big favourites from getting too big a lead.

It largely worked, with the Premier League side needing a huge help from an own goal to break the deadlock, but talkSPORT co-host Cundy claimed that the Spanish side were a 'disgrace to the Champions League.'

The fact they'd beaten Juventus and Bayern Munich to get to that stage of the tournament apparently wasn't a big enough clue for the former Chelsea player that they very much deserved to be in the final four.

The fact the Yellow Submarine then took a 2-0 lead into half time on Tuesday, levelling the tie up, and giving Jurgen Klopp's team a scare, also wasn't enough for Cundy.

Instead the 52-year-old claimed that their eventual downfall was proof that he was right all along, apparently ignoring the fact a team the size of Villarreal had just gone toe-to-toe with arguably the best team on the planet.

Probably the only thing that's a disgrace to the Champions League is that Cundy is able to share his opinions with such a large audience, considering how terrible they are, although there's no doubt he knows exactly what he's doing.

Villarreal have a smaller budget than Burnley and, with what can only really be described as a bunch of Premier League rejects, have won the Europa League and reached semi final of the Champions League.

It wasn't too much of a surprise that Liverpool fought back to win the game, although things were made easier for them thanks to Geronimo Rulli.

However it's not like other teams haven't fallen to similar comebacks in the competition, this year PSG lost to Real Madrid when 2-0 clear in the second half of their last 16 tie, thank to Karim Benzema's 17 minute hat-trick.

Cundy isn't exactly targeting the French side for being a 'disgrace' despite the fact they're much closer to Real than Villarreal are to Liverpool in terms of perceived talent and level.

Fortunately most fans are on the side of the Spanish side, who gave us incredible nights in Europe this season and defied all the odds.
