At a news conference on Friday, the manager said that he didn't have to worry about whether the comments would affect his performance. He got injured very early in the game, but he was in good shape at the time.

I have 26 players who are all motivated by different things and that is fine. I don't have a problem with that.

Mo wants to put things right but that is not the only motivation in most cases. We have so many reasons that we should give our absolute everything tomorrow night, even though we didn't forget what happened that time. That might be one reason but it is not the only one.

The European Cup will be played on Saturday, with Madrid trying to win their 14th trophy and the Reds trying to win their third trophy in five years.

I don't know how it will feel if we win. After the game, you have to ask me that question. At the moment we are more focused on preparing so that we can give them a proper fight.

Madrid are the most decorated club. Some players can win it a fifth time. The manager can win it the fourth time. We can't buy this experience now or get it overnight.

We feel experienced as well, that's the only thing I can say. We are in the final for the third time in five years. That is also special. How to prepare for the game is the only thing we think about. I didn't think for a second about how it would feel because I am patient enough to wait for that moment and tell you.

Fabinho missed the final two games of the season with a thigh problem, and Thiago was forced to leave the win at Wolves with a injury.

The pair have trained this week and are ready to feature on Saturday.

It looks good for both of them. Thiago was with the team. We'll train today and then we'll go from there.

The side that suffered defeat in Kyiv is more experienced than the one that lost, according to Andy Robertson.

Robertson said that they wrote that wrong for themselves in Madrid the following season and became winners for the first time. It is long in the past.

The Reds were hoping to complete a historic quadruple on Saturday, but were denied the title by City on the final day.

Trent Alexander-Arnold said the side have moved on from their league title disappointment and are focused on winning their third trophy of the season.

Alexander-Arnold said that they have put Sunday behind them.

We have gone all the way in all comps, so we forget about others and focus on one we are in next. It was hard to take at the time, but it is behind us.
