Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane calls Champions League win 'something crazy'

Virgil van Dijk joined Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018

"This is the last game of a very long season and they are able to perform in the big games as well and this is where he has his absolute strength". It's really sad-I can't find the exact words to describe it.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has opened up on why he rejected the chance to manage Manchester United after David Moyes was sacked from the club. His Dortmund side against Munich in his previous Champions League final were unlucky on the night and could've won it with a break here or there. "I knew I probably can help", Klopp told Robbie Fowler, speaking to the Mirror. Bale was stunning beauty, but most times it feels like there is some luck involved in those.

Winners of the first five editions of Europe's premier club competition, Real are again enjoying another golden era in Europe.

"Now is the time to enjoy this", Ronaldo said on television after the game in Kiev, Ukraine.

Yet Liverpool's own attacking quality suggests the Olympic Stadium in the Ukrainian capital could be the scene of an unforgettable encounter. Klopp described Ramos's challenge as "harsh", with the Real captain holding Salah's arm as he dragged him to the ground, and admitted the Egypt worldwide could miss the World Cup.

How to follow the Champions League final
A Spanish team has not lost to a non-Spanish team in a major European final in 13 attempts. Ronaldo, a four-time Champions League victor , leads this year's tournament with 15 goals.

Klopp said recently that Henderson and his teammates could be "remembered in 500 years" if they were to become the sixth team in Liverpool's history to lift the European Cup.

If Klopp needs inspiration for his pre-match pep talk, the German need look no further than the Liverpool team of 2005.

For Zidane, victory in Ukraine puts the former France great in an elite field alongside Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley as a three-time European Cup victor.

While Ronaldo, 33, is one of the first names on coach Zinedine Zidane's team-sheet, Bale has rarely been in the first-choice XI even after recovering from an early-season injury.

The Reds will take on the current holders in Kiev on Saturday evening in pursuit of their first Champions League title since 2005.
