Leeds [UK]: Liverpool forward Sadio Mane is all pumped up for the Champions League final, where they will be competing with Tottenham.
“Everybody’s ready. Especially you guys [the media]! I hope you are Liverpool fans! Everybody’s ready to win,” Goal.com quoted Mane as saying.
Liverpool are entering in the final with a lot of confidence as they finished second in Premier League but more importantly, they were 26 points ahead of their upcoming opponent, Tottenham, in the league.
During the last edition also Liverpool managed to reach the Champions League final. However, they faced a 1-3 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid. Mane is elated over reaching into the finals again and said they will use their past experience to get what they want.
“Yeah, of course [last season’s experience] will help with this one because we wanted to win it and it was not the case. That’s part of football. At the same time I think it’s positive because many people, even you, didn’t expect us to play this final. We did it [and] I think we learned a lot from this. Now we can use our experience this season to get what we want,” he said.
Liverpool will face Tottenham in the Champions League final on June 2.
