Mohamed Salah has reiterated his desire to face Real Madrid in the final and believes he is having his best season in Liverpool colours.
Salah was recently named the Football Writers’ Association Footballers of the Year for the second time, beating competitors from Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and West Ham’s Declan Rice.
The 29-year-old has had a sensational season for Liverpool so far, scoring 30 goals and providing 14 assists in 45 games across all competitions.
His contributions have put the Reds in pole position for a potential quadruple this season with the EFL League Cup already secured.
“You just feel so disappointed, so down,” Salah told Sky Sports. “‘Ah come on, not in this game!’ But once you have time, it makes you forget.
“I had work affairs and then I had a holiday after. On that holiday I just asked – what do you want? To keep crying about it and be sad about it and it takes you down? Or you just fight back.
“And I fought back in the best way and that’s why we’re here now. We had a meeting after and the manager talked to us in pre-season."
