Fenerbahce striker Roberto Soldado: Real Madrid will beat Liverpool

Fenerbahce striker Roberto Soldado is backing Real Madrid to beat Liverpool in the Champions League final.

Having come through the club academy, Soldado says Real can count on his support.

"I've always been a Madridista," the Spaniard told MARCA. "As a child, my family was and so was I.

"We have to enjoy this era, and yes I have the typical banter with friends who don't support Madrid [laughs].

"I hope the thirteenth [European Cup] comes. I learned a lot in the club's academy. At 14 years old, I matured a lot. It was a prize that gave me life.

"I couldn't pick one [former club], I felt loved in them all. On Sundays I check up on them all, if I can. I do a telethon marathon.

"In the future, I will dedicate myself to football, but I don't know in what area."
