Real Madrid’s Carvajal hits back at Mo Salah after revenge comment ahead of UCL final

Mohamed Salah-Liverpool

The war of words and mind games have continued ahead of Liverpool and Real Madrid’s meeting in the Champions League final on Saturday.

This time it is Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal who has responded to Mohamed Salah regarding his ‘revenge’ comments on the Champions League final.

The Liverpool attacker was part of the Liverpool team that lost the Champions League final 3-1 against Los Blancos back in 2018. His participation on that night was cut short half an hour into the game after a poor tackle from Sergio Ramos. 

And ahead of their meeting in Paris, the Egyptian spoke openly about his desire to set the record straight.

But Madrid’s right-back, Carvajal, has hit back at the Egyptian’s comments before the clash.

The Spain international told ABC he hoped the Reds losing another final against them would not be too much of a ‘burden’ for Salah. 

“I don’t know if Salah or Liverpool are in the mood for revenge. It is true that when you lose a Champions League final, you always want to have a second chance against that same team in order to beat them.” He said.

“Let’s hope it’s not an important burden for Salah to lose a second Champions League final against Real Madrid.”

The Egyptian’s words appear to have disgruntled the Real players, with Casemiro, Federico Valverde and now Carvajal speaking out against his comments.
