“Hope it’s not a major burden for Salah to lose a second Champions League final” – Real Madrid defender makes bold claim in response to ‘revenge’ talk from Liverpool superstar

Real Madrid defender Daniel Carvajal has warned Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah not to focus too much on getting revenge on him Los Blancos in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

The Reds meet the LaLiga winners in the Champions League final this weekend. The two sides will face off at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday.

One player who is particularly looking forward to the game is Liverpool’s Salah. The Egypt international suffered a major heartbreak after being forced off in the first half of the two sides’ clash in the 2018 Champions League final.

In Salah’s absence, Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3-1 that night. The 29-year-old striker is now determined to get revenge on him Los Blancos after the events in Kyiv four years ago.

However, Carvajal has suggested Salah should be prepared for another heartbreak ahead of Saturday’s game. The Real Madrid star joked that he hopes a second defeat in the Champions League final against the LaLiga giants won’t be too much for the Liverpool superstar. He told the Spanish daily newspaper ABC:

“I don’t know if Salah or Liverpool are in the mood for revenge. It’s true when you lose a Champions League final you always want a second chance against the same team to beat them. Let’s hope that it is not so.” a huge burden for Salah to lose a second Champions League final to Real Madrid.”

Salah was in the 2018 Champions League final for Jürgen Klopp’s team in the starting XI. However, he was dismissed after 31 minutes after suffering a shoulder injury following a collision with Sergio Ramos.


What did Liverpool superstar Salah say ahead of Real Madrid clash?

Salah recently looked back on the Reds’ “sad” defeat in the Champions League final Los Blancos in 2018 . Having had another chance to face the La Liga champions in the final, the Egyptian is keen to rectify the record. He said:

“Yes. It’s revenge time. They beat us in the final last time. It was a very sad day for all of us, so yes.”

“I said I wanted to play against them in the final. I’m sure it will be a difficult game. They beat a lot of good teams but I’m excited. The team is excited. We have to stay focused.”

It remains to be seen if Salah will keep his word and help the Reds to a Champions League win on Saturday.
