With the finals between Liverpool and Real Madrid in Kiev nearing, the Champions League final is something Sadio Mane is confident of dominating. Real Madrid has been the Champions League victors 12 times which the 26-year-old winger fiercely believes Liverpool can swipe in the coming final.
Mane adds that Liverpool has scored 40 goals in this year’s competition which just heightens the strong belief and positive outlook he has on behalf of Liverpool for the May 26 final. The ballsy footballer doesn’t seem to be intimidated by the Spanish giants and the possibility of getting their third European title in four years if they do win in Kiev.
“I can say at this moment we do have a lot of respect for Madrid, they are one of the best teams in the world, but we are Liverpool – we are strong and we can beat any team in the world.”
The main purpose for Mane is to play the game, fight for Liverpool’s fans without any fear, and of course to win the game altogether. “We have the players. We can score goals, we have shown that and there is nothing to be afraid of for us.” Mane added.
