Mohamed Salah is dreaming of scoring the winning goal for Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday as he looks to banish last season’s nightmare.
Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real Madrid last year but will contest back-to-back Champions League final when they face Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid on Saturday.
Salah – who has scored 26 goals in all competitions this season, was asked if he dreamed of scoring the winner for Liverpool and he replied: “Not just dream. I hope it becomes a reality and I score in the final, then win the Africa Cup of Nations [in Egypt] too.
“I am so happy that I have the chance to play another final. I hope I can play the full game this time,” Salah told beIN SPORTS.
“I am very excited for that. I hope we can right what happened last season, get a good result and win the competition.
“This is our second final in a row. We lost the first but everything feels better this time around and we have more experience than last time.”
Salah added: “We are all looking forward and we had a good preparation period in Spain. We are back in Liverpool and we are feeling very motivated as players and coaching staff. I hope we can win it this time.
“We had great preparations in Spain and it was a good time to prepare there. The team is now at the best level physically. So I hope this stop was an advantage for us in the final.”11 BUSINESS NUGGETS FROM SUPER EAGLES BRONZE MEDAL TRIUMPH. The content of this ebook will propel you above your competition. Buy NOW!!!
