Mohamed Salah is looking to exorcise the ghosts of last year’s tearful Champions League final with victory over Tottenham at the weekend. The Liverpool forward left the pitch in Kiev barely able to hold back his emotions after a clash with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos resulted in a shoulder injury.
His departure changed the dynamic of the game as the 44-goal forward had looked a threat to the defending champions. While he has not been as prolific this campaign, scoring just 26 times, the Egyptian has still played a key part in a close-run title challenge and the run to a second-successive Champions League final.
Salah is glad to be back on the biggest stage of all and is hoping for a different outcome on this occasion. “I am so happy that I have the chance to play another final. I hope I can play the full game this time,” he 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.” Asked whether, in a dream scenario, he scored the goal which won the club their sixth European Cup Salah added: “Not just a dream. I hope it becomes a reality and I score in the final, then win the African Cup of Nations too.”
