Mohamed Salah has taken the chance to explain the meaning behind his tweet after Real Madrid’s dramatic 3-1 triumph over Manchester City, in which he declared Liverpool ‘have a score to settle.’ The Egyptian has collected the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award following yet another spellbinding campaign that sees him top the Premier League goalscoring charts but Salah is not done yet.
While he knows there is plenty to play for before Paris, the forward cannot help but eye the prospect of playing in his third Champions League final under Jurgen Klopp.
“Well, I’m so excited, our team is so excited about it,” he said.
“I said before the game that I wanted to play Madrid in the final, I’m sure it’s going to be a tough game.
“They beat a lot of good teams, we just need to be focused on the game.
“First of all we still have a few games in the Premier League, we have to finish them in the best way possible.”
Salah was then asked if he was out for revenge. His response was emphatic: “Yeah, we lost in the final, it was a sad day for all of us. It’s revenge time.”
