• Striker says Champions League win can start Liverpool glory era
Mohamed Salah believes he was fated to score in Liverpool’s sixth European Cup triumph having used a picture of last season’s misery in Kyiv to inspire his redemption in the Champions League final.
Moments before leaving the changing room to face Tottenham on Saturday, the Egypt international looked at a photograph of his despair from 12 months ago when forced out of the final against Real Madrid after 30 minutes by Sergio Ramos. Within two minutes of kick-off in Madrid, Salah had converted his 29th goal of the season from the penalty spot to send Liverpool on their way to the first trophy of Jürgen Klopp’s reign.
