The heartbreaking reaction as injury cruelly ends Mo Salah's Champions League final

The heartbreaking reaction as injury cruelly ends Mo Salah's Champions League final

Salah had ended the season by breaking the Premier League goals record previously jointly held by Alan Shearer, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Aside from Messi, the other big challenger to Ronaldo this year will be Mohamed Salah. He is to leave Real Madrid this summer.

Mohamed Salah can cap a wonderful season by helping Liverpool to a sixth European title, while Cristiano Ronaldo can help himself to a fifth title and clear the way for a sixth World Player of the year award.

"They have the confidence, they have the experience and they know how to play these finals".

The Reds will take on the Spanish giants in pursuit of a first Champions League title since 2005 when Liverpool FC came from behind to beat AC Milan on penalties on a famous night in Istanbul.

"My result is 3-2 for Madrid", he said. Leo Messi and Ronaldo are outstanding, but the performance of Salah this season was also outstanding. But I have to say it was a fantastic Champions League, a fantastic league, a fantastic.

Ronaldo scored in Manchester United's 2008 final win over Chelsea, and has played a decisive role in each of the three finals won by Real since 2014. "I love that side of it because it motivates me a lot".

After all, Ronaldo has won the prestigious prize on the back of helping Madrid to each of their recent European Cup triumphs, in 2014, 2016 and again previous year.

"Well he's in tears down there, Mo Salah", he said.

Klopp's grip on the Liverpool job will not be impacted by Saturday's result but victory would put the brakes on a run of five cup finals losses, including in the 2013 Champions League decider to Bayern Munich while Borussia Dortmund manager. "The most important thing is to maintain that level, to [keep] doing what I've done next season as well".
