Liverpool's quick return to the Champions League final has Mohamed Salah hoping he can banish the painful memories of last season's showpiece.

The Egyptian's participation in the eventual 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev 12 months ago was ended after 30 minutes of play due to a shoulder injury.

But with the Reds once again appearing in the biggest game European club football has to offer, Salah is hoping for a much better outcome against Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid this Saturday.

The No.11 told beIN Sports: “I am so happy that I have the chance to play another final. I hope I can play the full game this time.

“I am very excited for that. I hope we can right what happened last season, get a good result and win the competition.”

He added: "This is our second final in a row. We lost the first but everything feels better this time around and we have more experience than last time.

"We are all looking forward and we had a good preparation period in Spain. We are back in Liverpool and we are feeling very motivated as players and coaching staff. I hope we can win it this time.

“We had great preparations in Spain and it was a good time to prepare there. The team is now at the best level physically. So I hope this stop was an advantage for us in the final.”
