Mohamed Salah Fires Warning After Getting His Wish Of A Liverpool Vs. Real Madrid Champions League Final
| Last updated
Mohamed Salah has fired an ominous warning to Real Madrid after they reached the Champions League final.
Real stunned Manchester City to book their spot in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s team took care of Villarreal, with Salah getting his wish of the La Liga giants in the showpiece fixture.
Shortly after Carlo Ancelotti’s side beat Man City, the Egyptian forward sent a bullish post on social media.
“We have a score to settle,” he tweeted, accompanied with pictures of him from Tuesday’s win in Spain.
Of course, it’s in reference to Liverpool’s crushing defeat to Real in the Champions League final back in 2018, where Salah was substituted in the first half due to an injury caused by Sergio Ramos.
Salah had stated his desire for revenge immediately after Liverpool’s win against Villarreal.
Asked who he wanted to face in the final, he told BT Sport: "I want to play Madrid, I have to be honest.
“Manchester City's a real tough team, we've played against them a few times this season.
"If you ask me personally, I would prefer Madrid. We lost in the final before against them, I want to play them and hopefully we'll win."
Rio Ferdinand, who asked him the question, said: “I like it. He's forward, he's fronted up. You can ask players and they say ‘Oh, I don't know, I don't care, I'm not sure...’
“He's got unfinished business with Real Madrid. He obviously had to come off with the challenge with Sergio Ramos.
“So, for him that's something where his fire is burning, he'd prefer to win it against a team that beat him last time. Good luck to him.”
Liverpool meet Real in Paris on May 28. Who takes it? Let us know.
