Sadio Mane has stressed that Liverpool’s players will not be seeking revenge in this Saturday’s Champions League final against Real Madrid in Paris.
The Liverpool forward indicated that Real Madrid deservedly won the 2018 Champions League decider in Kyiv, where they beat the Reds 3-1.
Mane talked to MARCA during Liverpool’s Open Media Day on Friday to discuss his strong season, his Ballon d’Or candidacy and the possibility of signing for Los Blancos in the future.
” The most important thing is Saturday, which for us will be the most important game of the season and we are very focused on doing everything we can to win.” Mane said to Marca.
” I think Real Madrid won in Kyiv because they deserved it and because they were a better team. I think that I and the team have already forgotten about it. Real Madrid deserved it – they won it and congratulations. It’s been four years now and I think we have more experience, more quality in the team and we know how to play these games, and I think that will help us to focus for Saturday’s game.”
“I would say that it was one of the best, because I won the most important trophy of my career, which was the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations. That gives me more motivation for the next step like the Champions League.” he added.
