The Liverpool star explained what he meant when he stated he wants to play against Real Madrid in the finals of Champions League.

Mohamed Salah has given a glimpse into the mood in Liverpool’s dressing room ahead of their last Premier League encounter of the season. The Reds are chasing Manchester City for the league crown, but are one point behind going into the last matchday.

“Everyone is enthusiastic as we chat to one other (as a team)”. They won the league two years ago because of this predicament. “We’re all hopeful, and now it’s up to you to win your match and see what happens.”, said the Egyptian winger.

He further said that he is talking about the best team in Champions League history, and he stated that because of what transpired before in the final in 2018. He added that it will be a challenging encounter, as this Madrid squad has beaten practically all of the top teams, but he is really looking forward to the final, and he hopes to win it.

“It was as if I said something terrible about Real Madrid when I stated I wish we could meet them,” Salah concluded.
