“So there’s still work to do, and I’m really happy about that. It’s very hard to evaluate your best moments in the game but this is right up there because I know how hard it is to stay up”.
The final UEFA Champions League match between English football club Liverpool and Spain’s Real Madrid is to be shown free by United Kingdom broadband ISP BT via YouTube, the BTSport TV app and other mediums. So everyone will look forward to it.
And Klopp is now hopeful an injury-hit Liverpool squad can rest up to be at their best in Ukraine.
Pete Oliver, managing director marketing and sales, consumer, said: “To have Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final is fantastic”.
“That’s what everyone wants”. We give them two days and then go to a camp.
“The way Real played against Celta suggested a style that would be put into practice against Liverpool”, Balague told Sky Sports, via the Express.
“Of course!” he said.
“This was the flawless final of the season, of a very exciting season, and a very intense season”.
“It is really hard to stay focused but he is focused”.
Gareth Bale’s brace helped ensure Real ended a three game run without a win, but it was the fierce intensity and forward movement which has Balague questioning whether the Reds can handle La Liga giants’ aggressive attacking game plan in Kiev.
“To be fair it’s hard to not think about it because everyone is talking about the final”. Wijnaldum admits. “Even before this game, nobody is talking about this game”. Talking about penalties, Mo Salah’s Liverpool were upset they only got one penalty at Anfield all season with many calls turned down. As a player you want to play a lot of games.
With just 90 minutes and the formidable foe of a Ronaldo-led Real Madrid standing between Salah and the Champions League, the “Egyptian King” would now surely swap all his individual accolades for a shot at immortality in the red of Liverpool. “To enjoy it we had to win it”.
“[Real have] good players, good team”. Now it’s about getting to 30 goals for the next two or three years, that’s the aim.
But Mignolet hasn’t played a Premier League game since New Year’s Day with Karius proving himself to Klopp with his fine displays in between the sticks. It’s going to be hard but I think that’s something we can deal with.
‘The only thing we have to do is play our own game and not be nervous.
The 25-year-old has 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool, the most in a debut season for the club – comfortably beating the previous record of 33, set by Fernando Torres in 2007-08.
