Egypt and Liverpool forward star, Mohamed Salah was lost for words and without a doubt one of the happiest footballer after finally getting his hands on the Champions League trophy.
The Egyptian ace suffered heartbreak in last year’s final against the defending Champions, Real Madrid when he was forced off injured early on by Spanish central defender and Real’s captain Sergio Ramos but he made amends after waiting patiently for his chance.
The Pharaoh ace Salah fired in the opener from the penalty spot after less than two minutes as the Reds beat Tottenham 2-0 on a memorable night in Madrid, Wanda Metropolitano.
After arguably one of the greatest night of his career so far, Salah praised their team effort to emerge from a scrappy game to become the UEFA Champions League Winners, a fete they have lived out to dream about.
He opened up on two reasons the achievement was so special due to the sacrifices he made during the early days of his career in Egpyt and having the chance to finally play a full 90 minutes on the biggest stage after his injury 12 months ago.
“Honestly, I don’t know what to say, but I’m just happy now,” Salah told BT Sport after the game, “To win a final, I’m very glad to play a second final in a row and play 90 minutes, finally,” He said.
