We have 50 per cent chance of winning Champions League, says Salah
Liverpool booked their spot in the competition’s final after beating the Serie A side 7-6 on aggregate. The Premier League side earned a comfortable 5-2 win at Anfield in a game that saw Salah score a brace against his former side, before losing 4-2 at Stadio Olimpico.
The former Roma man spoke to Viasport channel about the difficulty of games at Stadio Olimpico and discussed Liverpool’s chances in the final as well as the key to his success.
I’m very happy. We’re in the final now. We have one game to win the Champions League,” Salah said after the away game on Wednesday.
“I knew it was going to be a tough game because I played here for two years. It is always difficult for the away team but we try our best and we get the result at the end. I knew after the result there [at Anfield] this won’t be easy but we play for the result not just for the goals.
“Our chances is at 50-50, now that we are in the final we have only one game to win it,” Salah said in regards to Liverpool’s chances in the final. “Like I said, I want to win titles with Liverpool so probably win the Champions League.”
The Reds, who qualified for their first Champions League final since 2007, will fight for the title against Spanish giants and title holders Real Madrid at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine on May 26.
When asked how he managed to develop from a star player to a world star player at Liverpool, Salah said: “I work hard, I work on myself to improve my weaknesses and when I came back I said I wanted to show everyone my football in the Premier League and I proved them wrong.”
The former Chelsea winger has been in impressive form since joining the Premier League side from AS Roma in the summer. He has netted 43 goals across all competitions and collected a host of prizes including the PFA Player of the Year and the Writers’ Association’s Footballer of the Year.
