Ryan Giggs has admitted that he is hoping that Real Madrid will win the Champions League final against Liverpool FC.

The Reds are set to take on the Spanish giants in the Champions League final on Saturday 26 May in Kiev as they look to end the campaign with a trophy.

Liverpool FC have been earning huge amounts of praise for their strong performances this season under Jurgen Klopp, with the Reds having beaten the likes of Manchester City, AS Roma and FC Porto on their way to the final.

They are now set to face their toughest test as they prepare to try and stop Real Madrid from winning the Champions League for the third season running.

However, former Manchester United star and Wales manager Giggs has admitted that he is hoping that Gareth Bale is successful in helping Real Madrid to beat Liverpool FC in the final.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Giggs said: “I shouldn’t say this but yeah I hope so [Bale wins the Champions League]!

“No obviously for Gareth, to win it four times, forgetting about the Liverpool aspect.

“There are a lot of Liverpool supporters in here aren’t there! I’m sat next to one!

“For Gareth personally, to win it four times will be magnificent. It would be an unbelievable achievement.”

Liverpool FC have been in fine form this season and finished fourth in the Premier League to book their spot in the Champions League for next term.

However, the Reds are still on the lookout for their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield as Brendan Rodgers’ successor back in October 2015.
