Liverpool star Mohamed Salah out to exact vengeance against Real Madrid


Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah got his wish as Real Madrid reversed their first-leg defeat against Manchester City in the semi-final of the Champions League, securing passage to another significant European final after needing extra time to condemn Pep Guardiola to another missed opportunity to secure Europe's top prize.

For Salah, the opportunity to exact vengeance on the La Liga giants was at the core of his thinking when he recently revealed his desire to set the record directly after Madrid saw Liverpool off in the final at Kyiv's NSC Olimpiyskiy stadium in 2018 in a 3-1 win.

Now, Salah is ready to put Real to the sword, claiming 'it's revenge time' after seeing Carlo Ancelotti's side book passage to the Stade de France in Paris.

" Yeah. It's revenge time. They beat us in the final last time. It was a very sad day for all of us, so yeah. We have to concentrate on the Premier League initially. We have four games left and so do City. We wish they will drop points. We simply need to concentrate on the Spurs game and then go from there."

" I said I wished to play them in the final. I'm sure it's going to be a difficult game. They beat a great deal of good teams but I'm delighted. The team is excited. We need to stay focused. We have to complete the league first, then we will see." 

Salah also assessed the chance that Liverpool have to secure a historical quadruple this season under Jürgen Klopp, particularly after City's failure to make their first-leg lead count against Madrid, which could have knock-on effects in the Premier League title race.

" Not whatever remains in our hands however we have to win our games. Manchester City has a terrific team with a terrific manager and I'm sure they want to keep winning to take the Premier League. We simply require to focus on our games. 3 trophies are in our hands. The other one-- City has to drop points however I think it's possible.".

" Most of us have actually been together for 5 years now. We understand what it requires to win. We simply require to focus and offer 100%. We were 2-0 down in the last game and we returned-- that's actually important for our state of mind. We have the frame of mind that we can win any trophy.".

And it begins in a tough style for Liverpool, as they are set to clash with Antonio Conte's Champions League-chasing Tottenham on Saturday night, as Spurs want to attack the red half of Merseyside and strip the Reds of a possibility to secure their second league title in three seasons.
