Mane: Liverpool are ‘really, really positive’ ahead of UCL final

Sadio Mane says Liverpool are ‘really, really positive’ as they prepare to face Tottenham in the Champions League final.

Liverpool will meet Premier League rivals Spurs in the final of Europe’s premier competition on June 1, looking to banish memories of their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in last year’s final.

The Reds are currently enjoying some warm weather training in Marbella, and speaking ahead of next week’s final, Liverpool forward Sadio Mane says the club will head to Madrid in ‘positive’ mood, as they look to be crowned champions of Europe for a sixth time.

“We have some experience about it and we know how it is because we were there last year and were unlucky we didn’t win, although Real [Madrid] were very good. We are feeling really, really positive and for us it would be a big, big thing [to win it],” Mane told

“Tottenham and ourselves are both really young, but we both have lots of experience and have played every kind of game. It is exciting and we want to win it, for sure – everybody knows. We’re not here to think twice about it, we’re just going to go there to try to win it.”
