Mohamed Salah can become modern great like Messi and Ronaldo, says Klopp

Champions League final

Champions League final

Brazilian, Ronaldo Nazario, spend some of his Thursday in front of the microphones at El Partidazo de COPE and analysed the Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

'Barcelona are not even that good - but Real have only won the league once since Zidane took over and this season they only finished a very distant third. To win it? You need a little bit of luck.

Champions League final: "I'm optimistic".

"I think really important for us as players but also for the club, the supporters, I think for everyone".

"We don't pay any attention to the criticism and praise that you receive at certain times".

Ronaldo struck for Manchester United against Chelsea in the 2008 Champions League final and hit the last goal from the penalty spot in Real's 4-1 win in extra-time over Atletico Madrid in the 2014 final. I think that it will be talked about. It wouldn't help. Unfortunately, we can not ask majority [for help] any more, " Klopp added.

"I know the pressure will come, that's how it is but in this moment I only feel the opportunity, " he said. I hope it will be a final with lots of goals.

"The thing is maybe the history of this club shows you it is possible to win things".

He said: "To have been successful as a player and now to be successful as the boss, the big boss, is incredible".

A group of supporters from Liverpool's Mumbai Supporters Club has travelled all the way to Kiev to follow the Reds and they no doubt, are not the only ones.

"Nobody expected us to be here, but we are here because we are Liverpool". That is normal, but in the game shoot, strike, cross, make headers, bicycle kicks if you want.

But Liverpool's own attacking quality gives them reason to believe and suggests the Olympic Stadium in the Ukrainian capital could be the scene of an unforgettable encounter. In terms of the individual, I love to play the Champions League.

Real, seeking to become the first club to win the competition in its current form three years in succession, are favourites but Klopp has a confidence about his side - especially after seeing Los Blancos concede two goals against Villarreal last weekend.

"Through experience we know how hard it is going to be, but experience gives more security and serenity as well".

"Being the largest Liverpool Supporters Club in the Indian Subcontinent we have received an overwhelming response for our two official catch screenings which are happening in the suburbs of Mumbai".

We now have to complete the job against an excellent Liverpool side that is more than just three players.
