How Mo Salah fever has gripped Africa — Liverpool-Real Madrid

Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum celebrates scoring his side's second goal of the game during the UEFA Champions League Semi Final Second Leg at the Stadio Olimpico Rome

Then I look at the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul, when Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time against AC Milan to pull off the most incredible win we will ever see in a final of that magnitude.

The 25 years old Egyptian star has scored a stunning 43 goals this term, including 10 in the Champions League. There's a lot to discuss with the Frenchman as we take a seat at Heineken's "City of Champions" event in Athens.

The Champions League final will be played in Kiev, Ukraine on Saturday night. The thing is, before that we played Dortmund and Leverkusen, and Dortmund were champions at the time. "He's shown that this year and he's got a great chance to show that over the next few years as Ronaldo and Messi have done, but the day after tomorrow!" We climbed our Kilimanjaro and we won. "There have been so many moments to enjoy and hopefully we'll have one more on Saturday".

"Unfortunately, I have to accept that he is as brilliant as he was as a player". I knew him, of course; I knew his skills, and tried to anticipate all of his movements. "We want to win the trophy for fans and the club and we're certainly going in the right direction".

"People are trying to put pressure on me?" he said, laughing. To win it? You need a little bit of luck.

We only finished fourth in La Liga season... I really like the way we are in as a club, as a team. "There are players who are in fashion, those who appear briefly and disappear and others who stay around". "It's not that I wake up every morning and think, 'Wow". He's a good friend of mine. "I am really happy to be here". Under Jurgen's leadership, top players want to come to Liverpool. Now there is also Gareth Bale, and before that David Beckham. "We do it for that and not so I could join a group of outstanding managers". They did a great job and were champions. "In the dressing room, we do not feel like favorites".

Meanwhile, Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane tempered expectations. He started with the kids in Madrid, and after that worked his way up.

Jurgen Klopp's men are the first English club to reach the final stage of the competition since Chelsea beat Bayern Munich in 2012 and while they go into the game as the underdogs, Real Madrid must not underestimate their firepower. With the Cantera he learned some basics to be ready for the first team. "That's hard to do, but I think it's worth a try". There is no model for success - it's the way you improve yourself to be better and better. "As a team they are extremely collaborative in the recruitment of our players".

The game tonight... will be very competitive and attractive.

Egyptian global Salah has arguably been the stand-out performer across Europe this season, leading a reshaped Liverpool front-line after the exit of Coutinho in January.
