Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos insists that the motivation level of his team-mates is very high ahead of the crucial Champions League final against Liverpool and the Spanish international also gave his verdict on this years goalscoring sensation Mohamed Salah.
“The key to this team is our hunger and ambition,” Ramos said in his pre-match press conference in Kiev.
“That’s what I’d pick out, in addition to what a great group we are on a human level. We’re a team where we all pull in the same direction. There’s nothing that goes on off the field that can influence us. We’re all important, regardless of our individual roles. Retaining that clarity of ideas, hunger, ambition, excitement and motivation to continue lifting silverware has been key.”
“Liverpool? We’ve knocked out each of the big teams from all of the leagues. We accounted for PSG, Juventus and Bayern. It has been a tough journey and we now have to complete the job against an excellent Liverpool side that is more than just three players. They’re a side that know how to dig in, never give up and they’ve got a great coach who will be giving his all. It’s a unique occasion for all football fans.”
“MOHAMED SALAH? Cristiano and Messi are from another orbit. Some players are in fashion, some disappear, some become great players. To be compared with these players is very favourable. Salah is an enormous player. We will see what happens.”
