……Sadio Mane is in optimistic mood ahead of the Champions League final with Real Madrid and claims Liverpool have the players that can beat any team.

Despite facing the team who have won the past two titles back to back, Mane believes his team have what it takes for the big occasion.

“I don’t know for them, but for us it’s one of the most important games in our careers,” he admitted.

“Of course, it won’t be easy because they have experience and also they have quality in the team.

“We respect them a lot, but we also have players to beat any team in the world.

We are going to go there and try to do our best, cause them the most problems we can and try to win the game.”

The Senegal international was also keen to point out that it isn’t just in attack where Liverpool are strong, reflecting on the tough path that the English side have faced to reach Kiev.

“I am a lucky boy and we always talk about the front three, but don’t forget it starts from the back,” he insisted.

“It makes it easier – the power of Liverpool Football Club is the collective, we always do everything together, this is our power.

“It is a dream come true [to be in the final], it was not easy, especially from having the play-off against Hoffenheim and the group stage, but now we are in the final.

“Maybe that is a surprise for some people, but for us it’s something we have always believed in.

“As a team, we are close together, we have suffered together, but now we are in the final.

“Now we go there, we will try to do our best like always and why not win the trophy?”

With 19 goals to date this season, Mane will be hoping to notch the 20th in the biggest game of his career.
