Champions League: Jurgen Klopp calls for "big balls" from Liverpool

"So nothing to say about that so it's all fine, you will see him out there".

The 2017-18 Champions League final arrives on Saturday as reigning champions Real Madrid take on red-hot Liverpool in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Bravery in game-changing moments will be key, but in a Real Madrid team that have triumphed in three of the past four Champions League finals, Liverpool are facing a side highly experienced in this environment. "I have never been twice in a row to a Champions League final". We are Liverpool. We are here because we are Liverpool. This club has it in its DNA that it can really go for the big things.

"We can not try to fight on their level, but tactics are there to bring a better opponent to your level and when they are on your level, you try to beat them".

"I believed (that I was capable of this form)".

Jürgen Klopp has said Mohamed Salah can follow Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as a modern great but that the forward's only ambition must be sealing a phenomenal campaign for Liverpool with a starring role in the Champions League final. "Liverpool aren't supposed to be there and they know they're not supposed to be there".

"Religion is private how I understand it", Klopp said.

"The experience they have is 100 percent advantage to feel good in the game, but that doesn't help all the time". "Comparing players with Ronaldo and Messi is something you can't do, they're in another orbit", Ramos said.

"Obviously there's always a chance that there might be a bit of nerves which is probably normal but I wouldn't worry too much because they seem to be two very humble, down to earth players".

"I think as a team, by their standards, they've been pretty vulnerable at the back but as I said, I think it's more of the team as a whole, not just Marcelo".

"There are so many things you have to bring to the pitch to win a game at that level..."
