Real Madrid coach Ancelotti responds to Salah: We have thoughts of Liverpool revenge too

Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has shrugged off talk of "revenge" from Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah ahead of Saturday's Champions League final.

Reacting to the news that the Reds will face Real in the final, the 29-year-old expressed his excitement about the prospect of being able to seek revenge for what happened back in 2018.

He said: "I'm so excited. I said before the game that I wanted to play Madrid in the final. We lost in the [2018] final, it was a sad day for all of us, and I think it is revenge time. I'm sure it is going to be a tough game. They beat a lot of good teams, so we just need to focus on the game."

But responding to those claims on Tuesday, Ancelotti admitted Real will also be out to avenge the defeat Real suffered against the Reds in Paris 41 years ago.

He said: “It could be motivation, but Madrid also lost a final against Liverpool in Paris [1981]. It could be revenge for us too."
