Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp Speaks on Mohamed Salah’s’revenge’ demands.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has stated that he understands Mohamed Salah’s desire to seek revenge on Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month in Paris.

The Reds were beaten at the finals by their Spanish rivals in 2018, and they will be anxious to avoid a repeat when they seek a seventh European title at the next possible chance.

Salah was taken off early in the 2018 final after crashing with Sergio Ramos, and he recently vowed that it would be ‘revenge time’ when the two sides clash again in a few weeks at the Stade de France.

Klopp has now reiterated Salah’s opinions on the subject, saying that he, too, is desperate to defeat Real Madrid at the second attempt in order to atone for their earlier failure.

“When we lost that final [in 2018] my favourite solution would have been to play the final again against Real Madrid the next year,” the Liverpool boss told reporters at Friday’s press conference.

“Instead we ended up playing against Spurs, but in Madrid. Madrid seems to be our destiny! We were not happy that night, that’s clear, but it’s a while ago and I’m happy to go there this time and give it a try.

“But until then, a lot of games to play. It was strange and unlucky for City [to lose the tie so late], but what Madrid did is outstanding.

“They got through against PSG, Chelsea and City. If you knock out these guys you deserve to be in the final, what Carlo [Ancelotti] did there is absolutely incredible.”

Liverpool has already won the Carabao Cup this season and may still complete an unprecedented quadruple if they win the Champions League, FA Cup, and Premier League in the coming weeks.
