Jurgen Klopp claims notto believe in revenge ahead of the Champions League final against Real Madrid follow Mo Salah’s comment.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp claims not to believe in revenge as the Reds prepare to play Real Madrid in the Champions League.

The Reds and Real Madrid will meet in the prestigious league cup final in Paris this weekend with only one team certain to go home with the trophy.

Real Madrid defeated Liverpool in the 2018 Champions League final but the German believe this will not serve as way to revenge the loss.

When asked if the 2018 Champions League final will serve as a motivation for the Reds Klopp said: “No. It is clear, this was a harsh night for us. It was really tough to take. The circumstances, the way we conceded the goals, the injury of Mo of course, a lot of things happened that night. We came there a little bit on three wheels, if that makes sense.

“We had a long season as well – that’s how it always is when you play a Champions League final. Players came back just in time to make it for the final, so when we had to change we couldn’t replace Mo [Salah] one to one, so that was the story of that Champions League year. I don’t believe in revenge. I understand it as well, it’s just I don’t think revenge is a fantastic idea. I understand it, but I am not sure it is the right thing to do.”

Liverpool midfielder Mo Salah earlier stated before the Real Madrid and Manchester City match that he will want to meet the Spanish side in the final.

Following Real Madrid victory against the Premier League Champions, Salah stated that he has a score to settle against the La Liga Champions.

“For us, I understand what Mo said”, Klopp added, that he said he wants to put it right – I want to put it right. In Germany we say you always meet twice in life and that sounds more like a threat than it actually is, it is just like behave better in the first moment because if you meet again, you will get the reception or the reaction.

“It is all fine between me and us and Real Madrid; it is a football game on the highest level and if whoever thinks it is a good idea to give us the opportunity to win it this time, I think it would be a great story – but it will not happen because of what happened in 2018. It just will happen if we make the right decisions on the pitch and I hope we can do that.”
