Mohamed Salah has fired a warning to Real Madrid ahead of the Champions League final on May 28th in Paris after events when the pair last met at the stage in 2018.
Liverpool lost 3-1 to the La Liga giants in Kyiv in the 2018 final, after two blunders from goalkeeper Loris Karius and a Gareth Bale stunner, but it was also a game that saw Salah go off injured after a collision with Sergio Ramos.
The Egyptian was having an incredible first season on Merseyside and a Champions League winners medal would have topped that off, but it was ultimately denied in cruel fashion. This has lived with the Liverpool man ever since, as when asked about who he wanted in the final by BT Sport last night, the 29-year-old said Real Madrid.
“It’s great to be in the final for the third time in five years.”
“I want to play Real Madrid, I have to be honest.”
“Hopefully we’ll win it from them as well.”
