  • 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

"They're in another orbit". "There are players who are in fashion, those who appear briefly and disappear and others who stay around".

Liverpool are seeking a sixth European title but none of Klopp's squad has played in a Champions League final. Playing against Real Madrid the team who have been champions for the past two years running and who are used to these kinds of big games could be a handicap but they might see themselves as favourites while we will just be going out to play our game. In recent weeks, Salah could be found at news conferences promoting a cellphone company, a logistics firm and taxi service.

Slowed down by a five-game suspension for pushing a referee in the Spanish Super Cup against Barcelona back in August, Ronaldo endured a barren spell of only four goals in the first half of the Liga season as Madrid fell way behind runaway leaders and eventual champions Barca. He helped English players come to Spain, when before they went to Italy. Ronaldo eclipsed Salah in the competition with 15 goals after starting out in the group stage. So potent is the 33-year-old Ronaldo, he only required 43 games.

Anfield's Egyptian King has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season - including TEN in Europe - and completed a clean sweep of Player of the Year awards after a sensational debut campaign in a Reds shirt. This club has in its DNA that we can really go for the big things.

To win the Champions League... first of all, you need organisation; structure inside the club. "On a personal level it motivates me a lot".

Madrid have the experience, the guile and are streetwise enough to find a way to get their way hands on their third consecutive title but there is a sneaking suspicion that they're under-estimating their opponents.

The European soccer season comes to a close on Saturday, as Real Madrid and Liverpool meet in the Champions League final in Kiev. This final is the easiest final they have in front of them, all of them - [club president] Florentino Perez, the captains.

I played against Zinedine Zidane that day... and also Didier Deschamps. Having dismantled the Serie A side 5-2 in the first leg in a brilliant display of attacking football, the Merseysiders conceded two late goals to lose the return leg 4-2 but never looked in danger of being knocked out.

"The road to Kiev has been fantastic and what's exciting about this is that I think we deserve to be in the final".

Liverpool and Real Madrid will face off in the Champions League final in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday.

To do that he will have to reverse his appalling record in finals which has seen him lose his last five, including in the Champions League with Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich. "It's not that I wake up every morning and think, 'Wow".
