Klopp says Salah 'full of power' for Champions League final

Klopp says Salah 'full of power' for Champions League final

Hundreds of Liverpool fans have been left scrambling to reach Kiev for the Champions League final this weekend, after flights were cancelled in an issue which some have blamed on air authorities in the Ukrainian capital.

Saturday's clash at Kiev's Olympic Stadium is a repeat of the 1981 final, when Liverpool prevailed 1-0 in Paris.

"Maybe a few of us dream we would be in the final and that it was possible". Meanwhile Liverpool and Real Madrid will both hold press conferences and open training sessions today ahead of the final on Saturday. How many players can say they've won a Champions League?

"I just want to wish Zizou, the boss, the president, the club good luck in the Champions League final".

But no matter who plays, Ronaldo and Ramos are the two big game players that fans of Los Blancos will be looking towards, to turn this tide into their favor. "I have played in the holding role, the number six position more than I used to", Wijnaldum added.

Klopp, who confirmed that he has no new injury concerns within his squad, has navigated a run to the final that has seen Liverpool score a record 40 goals in the competition this season - 10 more than Real.

"Zinedine Zidane is one of the top five players of all time".

Speaking of his last experience of a Champions League final while managing Borussia Dortmund in 2013, he said: "As a manager you have a lot to do in preparation, being convinced, being cool and calm". If he is fasting, Salah will go around 16 hours without food or drink on the day of the biggest game of his career, and then have a very short time to eat and rehydrate. We don't have too much time but we try everything to bring everyone over to Kiev'.

Defending champions Madrid are aiming to win the competition for a third consecutive season, whle Liverpool are looking for their sixth European crown and a first in 13 years. The Whites are a great team but they are not blessed with great pace in their back four and I expect Liverpool to exploit that weakness in what promises to be a cracker. "If you like to compete and want to work hard you can achieve what we are doing".

"Once I made a decision to become a coach I thought nothing is impossible".

Klopp also conceded that Real's experience of winning the Champions League the last two years will give it an advantage but hopes to find the right tactical solution to bridge the gap.
