Champions League: Don’t talk before a final – Thierry Henry mocks Salah after defeat

Former France striker, Thierry Henry has hit out at Mohamed Salah after Liverpool lost 1-0 to Real Madrid in this year’s Champions League final on Saturday.

Vinicius Junior’s second-half tap-in was enough for the Spanish giants to claim their 14th European crown.

It was the second time that the Reds have been defeated by Real, following a 3-1 scoreline in Kiev back in 2018.

Ahead of the 2022 rematch between the two sides in Paris, Salah expressed his desire for revenge with the Egyptian forward having suffered a shoulder injury following a heavy challenge by then Real captain Sergio Ramos four years ago.

Unfortunately, that revenge did not materialise, with Henry now criticising the Egyptian for his pre-match comments.

Henry said: “We have said it so many times, it’s about putting the ball into the back of the net. They [ Real Madrid ] have one on target and they score.

“Liverpool had a lot. But they faced Thibaut Courtois. Remember what I said in the semi-final, people don’t give him the credit he deserves. He’s one of the best keepers in the world and better than Ederson. And he’s shown it tonight.

“I always say something, don’t talk before a final. Beat Real Madrid, then talk and say, ‘it was revenge and all of that’. When you talk before a final, you have to win it.”
