Gerrard: losing Salah had a psychological effect on everyone
The Reds were dominating the final up until Sergio Ramos held Salah’s arm to slam the King’s shoulder into the ground, forcing the Reds to lose their main star after 30 minutes of play.
The Liverpool legend spoke about his two finals with Liverpool and the difference between winning and losing the most important game of the season.
“I’ve won one and lost one. You don’t remember the ones you lose. At the end of the day those two mistakes have been pivotal to the result.
“Liverpool have played well tonight. Losing Mo Salah had a psychological effect on everyone and Madrid came good from there.
“We spoke about experience before the game, know-how on the big stage and the Madrid players being more switched on. The first goal is a keeper in a rush.
“It’s a rush of blood to the head, all he had to do was stay calm and he’s made a mistake and been punished.”
This was Salah’s first final and Liverpool’s third in the Champions League era, the Reds only secured one title.
