Sadio Mane sends Liverpool FC warning to Real Madrid
Sadio Mane looks ahead to Real Madrid v Liverpool FC in the Champions League final
Sadio Mane has warned Real Madrid that Liverpool FC are full of confidence as they prepare to face off in the Champions League final.
Mane scored Liverpool FC’s opening goal in their 4-2 defeat by AS Roma on Wednesday night as Jurgen Klopp’s men managed to progress to the final thanks to a narrow 7-6 aggregate victory.
Liverpool FC will now take on two-time defending champions Real Madrid in the final in Kiev at the end of the month as they bid to try and secure their sixth Champions League trophy.
Real Madrid are likely to be the favourites to win the final given their dominance of the competition in recent seasons.
However, Mane – who has been one of Liverpool FC’s most impressive players this season – feels that the Reds have more than enough to beat Zinedine Zidane’s men and bring the trophy to Anfield.
Speaking to BT Sport on Wednesday night, Mane said: “If you have Real to face you have to think about them – they are one of the best teams in the world.
“We are Liverpool, we are strong and we can beat any team in the world. We are going to do our best to go and win the final.”
Before the final, Liverpool FC will first turn their attentions back towards Premier League affairs and their crunch trip to Chelsea FC on Sunday afternoon.
Liverpool FC are currently third in the table as they look to cement a top-four finish and their place in the Champions League for next season.
