Kings of Europe! Salah and Reds heroes complete UCL redemption as Liverpool claim glory
The mentality giants are the Kings of Europe.
On the biggest of stages, Liverpool delivered. Their special season got its special conclusion. After 14 years, the Champions League trophy is heading back to Anfield after Jurgen Klopp’s side defeated Tottenham 2-0 at Madrid’s wonderful Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
For Mohamed Salah, this was his night of redemption, the one he’d dreamed of for a year. Devastated in Kiev, delirious in Madrid, the Egyptian’s second-minute penalty secured a sixth European Cup crown for the Reds. Divock Origi, the hero of the semi-final, emerged from the bench to finish the job late on. The beaming Belgian was the man for the big occasion, yet again.
