Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum 'really excited' for Champions League final

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum 'really excited' for Champions League final

Premier League Golden Boot victor Mo Salah will be looking to prove he belongs on the big stage alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, who is within touching distance of a fifth career Champions League final win that would take him above Lionel Messi's four trophies with Barcelona. He was brought into England by Jose Mourinho, but as was the case for several talented players at Chelsea, he didn't get the requisite game-time and was instead shipped off on loan spells to Fiorentina and Roma. It's going to be a tough game - we know they have so much quality.

"The top six now is so strong, everyone's really competitive, so for us to finish in the top three for a third year in a row is brilliant", added Kane.

'Two years ago it was the Europa League final (which Liverpool lost to Sevilla) but the Champions League final is the highest you can play for a club so everyone will look forward to it.

Although Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have netted 40 goals in the competition, more than any other side, the ruthlessness displayed by Zinedine Zidane's side at the Bernabeu was made all the more impressive as they were without the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Dani Carvajal.

LIVERPOOL midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum admits the dream of joining the ranks of Champions League "legends" is driving the players to succeed in Kiev later this month.

Staying on track in a season like this, it's really hard, he's still a young boy and I am really happy with how he dealt with it.

But according to the report by Spanish media outlet Don Balon, Liverpool coach would allow Mohamed Salah to leave only if Real Madrid can give them the cash, Dani Ceballos and Keylor Navas. Wijnaldum admits. "Even before this game, nobody is talking about this game".




The Egyptian King has been in sublime form this season with 32 goals in the PL and 44 in all competitions for Liverpool as they're in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.

"I haven't seen Mo to talk with him".

Craig Bellamy believes Liverpool FC still need to sign a goalkeeper in the summer.

The final will be in the back of the minds of the players and it will be up to Klopp to ensure his charges are ready and focused on Brighton.

'The only thing we have to do is play our own game and not be nervous.

Supporters will also earnestly be hoping that Salah will continue this season's antics into next year as well.
