Steven Gerrard sends message to Liverpool FC stars ahead of Real Madrid clash
Steven Gerrard urges Liverpool FC's players to take their chance to change their lives by winning the Champions League
Steven Gerrard has urged Liverpool FC’s players to do everything they can to beat Real Madrid in the Champions League final on Saturday.
The Reds are preparing to take on the Spanish giants in the final in Kiev on Saturday night as they look to end their season in the best possible fashion.
Liverpool FC have been earning plenty of praise for their strong performances under Jurgen Klopp this season, with the Reds having beaten the likes of Manchester City, FC Porto and AS Roma en route to the final.
The Reds players are looking to win their first trophy under Klopp since his appointment as Brendan Rodgers’ successor at Anfield back in the autumn of 2015.
And Gerrard, who captained Liverpool FC to Champions League glory in Istanbul back in 2005, is backing the Reds to get the job done against the Spanish giants.
Speaking to Liverpool FC’s website, Gerrard said: “These players have an opportunity to not just change their careers but their lives in general. They are the moments that you dream of.
“My message to the players would be: go and grasp it, go and seize the moment you have worked so hard for. Go and reward yourselves for the journey you have taken this club on.”
Liverpool FC have already booked their place in the Champions League for next season by finishing in fourth place in the Premier League table this season.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, are looking to become the first team in history to win the Champions League for three seasons running.
