Mo Salah posts message for Real Madrid after epic semi-final

Mo Salah posts message for Real Madrid.

Mo Salah has said that Liverpool have a ‘score to settle’ with Real Madrid, after Los Blancos joined Jurgen Klopp’s Reds in this year’s Champions League Final.

Madrid looked dead and buried on Wednesday night as they trailed Manchester City by two goals on aggregate heading into injury time of their semi-final second leg.

Real Madrid complete remarkable comeback.

However, not for the first time in the Champions League this season, Carlo Ancelotti’s men rescued victory from the jaws of defeat, with Rodrygo scoring twice to send the tie into extra time, before Karim Benzema completed the comeback from the penalty spot by sealing a 6-5 aggregate victory.

The 13-times champions will now face Liverpool, who themselves are looking for their seventh European Cup, in a repeat of the 2018 final, which Madrid won 3-1.

On that night in Kyiv, Salah left the field in tears after just half an hour, having suffered a dislocated shoulder in a challenge with Madrid captain Sergio Ramos, an incident which led to much debate on whether the injury was deliberately inflicted by the Spaniard.

Mo Salah’s message.

Taking to social media after Madrid’s win over Man City on Wednesday, Salah simply posted the words ‘we have a score to settle,’ implying that the Egyptian hasn’t forgotten that fateful night when his dream of representing his country at the 2018 World Cup appeared in tatters.

On Tuesday, after Liverpool got through their own semi-final against Villarreal, Salah was asked if he would prefer to face Man City or Real Madrid in the final and he emphatically chose the latter.

“I want to play Madrid,” the 29-year-old said. “I have to be honest. City is a really tough team, we played against them a few times this season. If you ask me personally, I would prefer Madrid. Because we lost in the final against them, I want to play against them and hopefully win it.”

Liverpool chasing history.

Salah will get the chance to do just that when the 2022 Champions League Final takes place on May 28th, but before that there’s the task of wrapping up two more legs of a prospective quadruple.

The Reds return to Premier League action this Saturday with a home encounter against Tottenham Hotspur, and with an FA Cup Final against Chelsea also on the horizon, the next few weeks could be some of the biggest in the history of Liverpool football club.
