Salah regrets Champions League final

Salah regrets Champions League final – Here’s Why

After failing to win the European title with Liverpool this year, Efrain Juarez said he was dejected. Mohamed Salah stated that he wishes the new season would begin today after losing the Champions League with Liverpool.

The Reds were eliminated from the competition in the final last week, losing 1-0 to Real Madrid in a disappointing end to the season despite their FA Cup and Carabao Cup triumphs.

Salah was left disappointed by Liverpool’s European defeat, and he is eager to get back on the pitch for the 2018-19 campaign.

“It was a very tough night, it’s hard to forget and accept what happened,” Salah told.

“But that’s football and these things happen.

“I believe in myself and I know what I can do, so hopefully next season we can try to win the Champions League or any other trophy.”

The 26-year-old forward also spoke about his future with the Reds, insisting he wants to stay at Anfield for a long time.

“I’m very happy here and everything is perfect,” Salah said.

“The club, the fans, my teammates, everyone makes me feel at home here and I want to stay here as long as I can.”

Salah has been in scintillating form for Liverpool this season, scoring 44 goals in all competitions.

The Egyptian’s tally included 32 strikes in the Premier League, which saw him finish as the division’s joint-top scorer alongside Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.

He was also named as the PFA Player of the Year and the Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.


Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah is an Egyptian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Liverpool and the Egypt national team. He is widely considered to be one of the best players in the world. Salah began his career as a youth player for local Egyptian club El Mokawloon, before moving to Swiss club Basel in 2012. He won several honours with Basel, including the Swiss Super League title in his final season. 

In 2013, he was signed by Chelsea for £11 million, but he was loaned out to Fiorentina and then Roma the following year. He became a regular starter at Roma and was named the Serie A Footballer of the Year in his second season. 

In 2017, he returned to the Premier League, joining Liverpool for a club record fee of £36.9 million. Salah enjoyed a stellar first season at Liverpool, breaking the Premier League scoring record for a 38-game season and being named the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and the FWA Footballer of the Year. He has since won the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup with Liverpool. At international level, Salah represented Egypt at youth level before making his senior debut in 2011. 

He helped Egypt reach the final of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, where they lost to Cameroon. He has also participated in three editions of the FIFA World Cup, reaching the 2018 edition, where he was named in the FIFA World Cup Dream Team. Salah has received numerous individual awards and accolades, including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, BBC African Footballer of the Year and CAF African Footballer of the Year. He has been named to the Africa Cup of Nations Team of the Tournament three times and was named the best player in Africa in 2017. 

He has also been included in the UEFA Squad of the Season on two occasions and was named to both the FIFPro World XI and the CAF Team of the Year in 2018. In 2020, he was ranked as the seventh-best footballer in the world by Forbes. Salah has been nicknamed “The Egyptian King” and “The Pharaoh”. He is also known for his charitable work. In 2018, he was granted the honorary title of “Ambassador of the Poor” by Egypt’s Grand Mufti.


What has Salah said about Liverpool’s UCL final defeat?

It’s been almost half a year since Liverpool lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid, and Mohamed Salah has finally broken his silence on the matter.

In an interview with Egyptian TV station ONTV, Salah opened up about how he felt after the game and what he said to his teammates in the locker room afterwards.

“It was very difficult for me after the game,” Salah said. “I tried to be strong for my teammates, but inside I was very sad.”

“I didn’t want to show that I was hurt, but of course it was a tough moment for me,” he continued. “I had a lot of thoughts going through my head, but I tried to stay positive.”

As for what he said to his teammates, Salah revealed that he told them they had nothing to be ashamed of.

“I just told them that we had done our best and that we should be proud of ourselves,” he said. “Of course, it was very difficult to lose the final, but I think we gave our all and that’s what counts.”

It’s clear that the loss still weighs heavily on Salah’s mind, but he remains positive about Liverpool’s chances of winning the Champions League in the future.

“I’m sure we’ll have another chance to win it,” he said. “We just have to keep working hard and believing in ourselves.”

Liverpool fans will certainly be hoping that Salah is right and that their team can bounce back from the disappointment of last year’s final to lift the trophy next time around.


Salah’s performance

Last season was a mixed bag for Mohamed Salah. On the one hand, he scored an impressive 22 goals in 44 games for Liverpool. On the other hand, he struggled with injury and form towards the end of the season, and was largely overshadowed by teammate Sadio Mane.

This season, Salah will be looking to put those injury concerns behind him and rediscover the form that made him one of the most feared strikers in the world. He’ll also be hoping to help Liverpool challenge for more trophies, after they narrowly missed out on the Premier League title last season.

So far this season, Salah has looked sharp and has already scored four goals in eight games. He will be hoping to maintain this form throughout the season and help Liverpool challenge for more silverware.
