Liverpool attacker Salah wants to face Real Madrid for Champions League revenge

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah wants to play Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

The Reds booked their place in the final with a 3-2 win over Villarreal on Tuesday.

Real Madrid and Manchester City will face off in the other semi-final in Spain on Wednesday, with City ahead 4-3 on aggregate.

And Salah hopes Real get through so Liverpool avenge their defeat to Los Blancos in the 2018 final.

Speaking after the game, Salah said: “It is great to be in the final. Third time in five years is unbelievable. Everybody is happy inside. I am sure they will celebrate, drink a little bit. But we have a game against Spurs so we have to focus on this as well. Tomorrow is a new day and we go from there.

“It was tough in the first half but we go to the dressing room and the gaffer talked to us. There is character and personality in the dressing room. We are a top team at a top level so that is why we can strike back after losing 2-0 in the first half.

“We fight for everything. We win one trophy, now we are in another final, we keep fighting in the Premier League. I focus, train hard and try to recover. I know what I want and hopefully I can get that.

“Always before the season I know what I want individually and collectively. I am below what I want (with 30 goals and 15 assists). I have never said this before, but before the season starts I say I want to go for 40 goals and maybe 15 assists. I have hit the assists so I need to focus on the goals now!

“The quadruple is the target now. Maybe not at the start of the season. I am always honest and focus on the Champions League and Premier League. But now, why not? After we beat City in the FA Cup semi-final [I thought it was on]. After the group stage I thought ‘OK, we are going to win the Champions League this year’.

“I want to play Madrid [in the final]. City is a really tough team.”
