How to follow the Champions League final

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg at the Stadio Olimpico Rome 'Fighter' Zinedine Zidane As Good A Coach As He Was A Player: Jurgen Klopp

Werner, though, promised fans that manager Jurgen Klopp will be backed in the transfer market, as Liverpool seek to close the gap on Premier League champions City and runners-up Manchester United. "I hope we can give the club and the supporters, and of course ourselves, the win over Real Madrid", said the Holland global.

Ballon d'Or battle? The victor of Saturday's Champions League final could decide whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Mohamed Salah win World Player of the Year. We must play a great game to win it.

"Religion is private how I understand it", Klopp said.

Klopp's players are lucky to be at the club at a time when a team have gelled together wonderfully well and there is no reason why they can't now be crowned as champions of Europe.

Ronaldo leads the Champions League goalscorers charts for the sixth consecutive season with 15, but will come up against the world's most expensive defender in £75 million ($100 million) Dutchman Virgil van Dijk in Kiev.

Much has been made of Klopp's record in finals and the fact is that he's had one win from six finals as a manager but most of those were against stronger and more established teams.

"We've done fantastically well to get to this point", Henderson said. When the whistle goes that is a different story, but when we arrive in Kiev, when we see all the Liverpool fans, when we go on the pitch for the warm up, we have to enjoy it and make yourself ready.

"You have to expect he is brilliant, like he was as a player".


"Do Real Madrid, sitting in Madrid at the moment, think, 'thank God it's Liverpool!'?".

Don't fear the prospect of a Champions League final and instead look at it as a night when your career can be defined, the one game that can turn you into a hero forever more.

"I know how I lost the finals, it didn't change my life", said Klopp, a two-time Bundesliga champion with Dortmund.

Liverpool's physiotherapist Ruben Pons told Spanish radio station Onda Cero that Egypt forward Salah had been observing Ramadan during the team's recent training camp in Marbella but had chosen to interrupt his fasting three days before the final. "I've had an fantastic season in the Champions League", said Ronaldo, who has scored a record 120 goals in the competition overall. This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things.

For once in a Champions League final, Cristiano Ronaldo will yield some of the spotlight to another player sweeping up adulation and personal acclaim.

The biggest mistake that Madrid can make is to take Liverpool lightly and if they're not right on top of their game from the first whistle, they could well find themselves two or three goals behind before they get going.

"We are Liverpool and we are not just a good team".
