Real Madrid right-back Dani Carvajal has responded to Mo Salah’s recent comment about getting revenge as the Los Blancos defeated Liverpool 3-1 in the 2018 UEFA Champions League final, where the Egyptian winger got injured and couldn’t finish the game. But just like in 2018, both these teams will face each other in the upcoming Champions League final in Paris. 

While talking to ABC’s Rubén Cañizares, Carvajal hopes that Salah doesn’t hold a burden from their previous defeat. He said, “I don’t know if Salah or Liverpool are in the mood for revenge. It is true that when you lose a Champions League final you always want to have a second chance against that same team in order to beat them. Let’s hope it’s not an important burden for Salah to lose a second Champions League final against Real Madrid.”

The Spaniard then addressed this could be one of Madrid’s toughest Champions League wins because of the quality of opponents on their way to the finals. He said,  “It could be. This and the Thirteenth, which was PSG, Juventus, Bayern and Liverpool in the final. But today, how is football, which is not a ‘pay to win’ but almost, perhaps this is more.” 

“Other leagues have a significant economic injection, and you want not many of the great players to play in those leagues. So beating the two finalists from last year, and the PSG of Mbappé, Messi, Neymar and Ramos makes us grow and show the world what Madrid is and what this club means”

“I think I’m finally at one of my best levels”

Carvajal also opened up about his recovery from the various muscle injuries during the 2020-21 season. He expressed, “The 20-21 season was very fateful, personally cloudy. After a serious injury in October, I chained muscle injuries and not getting out of that loop was very frustrating.”

“This season started very well. It is true that I had a small problem in the soleus, perhaps due to the adaptation to that level of competition stress, and I chained that injury in January with covid. But from February to now, with continuity of minutes and work, I think I’m finally at one of my best levels.”
