Champion league: Salah sends warning to Real Madrid ahead of final

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has sent Real Madrid a warning shot on social media just days before the Champions League final in Paris.

The Egyptian forward posted an image on his social media accounts with the awards for the Premier League’s top assist provider and the Golden Boot, which he shared with Tottenham Hotspur’s Son Heung-min, as they both scored 23 goals.

“We’re not done yet,” tweeted Salah, referring to the Champions League final.

Salah, who picked up a groin strain after the FA Cup final, is now fully recovered ahead of Saturday’s game against Real Madrid.

Salah’s revenge

The 29-year-old will have the chance in Paris to avenge the defeat against Real Madrid from four years ago in Kyiv, as he was forced off injured following a clash with Sergio Ramos.

Whilst it is not known what Salah’s thoughts on the injury are, many Liverpool fans believe that the Spanish defender injured the Reds forward on purpose as he was their most influential player at the time.

Liverpool will be desperate to win the Champions League as they missed out on the Premier League title in dramatic circumstances last weekend.

They did what they needed to do in beating Wolves, but they needed Manchester City to draw or lose at home to Aston Villa.

The Villains took a 2-0 lead, yet City scored three times late in the game to clinch the title.

Ancelotti: You might think it’s luck, but that’s the magic of the Bernabeu

Reacting to warning and media speculations ahead of Saturday night Champions League final against Liverpool, Real Madrid boss, Ancelotti:

“We have only thought about what we have to think about,” Ancelotti said at a media event ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool.

“We respect everyone. We have to do our job. I have never talked about a player who is not at Real Madrid and I never will.”

Ancelotti has faced Liverpool numerous times in the Champions League, both as a player and a coach. The Italian tactician explained why he is not willing to allow the Reds to win their seventh European trophy.

“Losing to [Liverpool] was a tragedy with Roma in 1984 and [with AC Milan in] 2005,” recalled Ancelotti.

“Then the revenge, which [Mohamed] Salah says, in 2007. I respect them a lot. One of the best experiences of my career is seeing the push of [the Estadio Santiago] Bernabeu or Anfield. In addition to the beautiful experience of being rivals with Everton.

“I like their history, that of [Bob] Paisley, they have six Champions Leagues, only one fewer than AC Milan. That’s an extra motivation too. My friends who support AC Milan ask me not to let them reach seven [Champions League trophies].”

Ancelotti went to discuss about the style of play imposed on Liverpool following Jurgen Klopp’s arrival back in 2015.

“The German school has raised the intensity and pressure in the matches,” noted Ancelotti.

“Pressing so high up [the pitch] is a novelty. I don’t see myself as a coach of the old generation. I am attentive to changes, but always [focused on] the most important thing: the characteristics of the players you have.

“I can’t go to pressure if I have a fat player, I have to put him in the area to finish off.”

Ancelotti also broke down the things that have impressed him this season at Real Madrid following his return to Los Blancos las summer.

“The consistency of Vinicius [Junior], the humility of players I haven’t seen since 2014 and in the meantime, they had won three Champions League titles,” added Ancelotti.

“They have made history and nothing has changed in their attitude, in their professionalism. We have never given up when everyone thought we were going to. You might think it’s luck, but that’s the magic of the stadium, what you experience at the Bernabeu.”
