The 25-year-old talked about the UCL Final which is scheduled for this weekend. In his recent interview with Cadena Cope, he expressed his immense happiness for his side on reaching the final stage of the competition.
“I have no words (for Liverpool reaching the final), it is an incredible achievement for us and now we have a trophy in our sights.”
After almost a decade Liverpool has managed to reach so far in the Champions League. The German coach Jurgen Klopp has been heavily praised for achieving such a feat. 2 years ago he managed to take this Liverpool side to the finals of Europa League where they were stopped by Sevilla from collecting the trophy. Moreno expressed his opinion on the former Borussia Dortmund coach.
“Klopp is a very sentimental guy and he definitely has a special connection with this competition.”
Klopp has never won the Champions League but has a good track record against Real Madrid as his former side Dortmund managed to eliminate Los Blancos in the semi-final of 2013.
Moreno showered praise on his famous Egyptian teammate Mohammed Salah who has scored a record number of 32 goals in English Premier League this season a feat which hasn’t been achieved by any other player.
“(Mohamed) Salah is an amazing player and has been so important for us this season, we hope he can produce one more special match.”
Finally, the Spaniard was asked about how can Liverpool stop the goalscoring machine Cristiano Ronaldo who has scored 120 goals in the competition and has 15 in this season which makes him the top scorer of this season and all-time record too. The Liverpool left-back jokingly claimed he knows the way to stop Ronaldo from scoring in the final.
“Ahead of the final, if I could, I would erase Cristiano.”
Will the Liverpool man be able to find a way out to stop Cristiano Ronaldo? That will be seen on 26th of May 2018 at 7:45 PM CET when Real Madrid play against Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine for the UCL Final. The match will be telecasted live all over the globe via the official broadcasting partners of UEFA.
