Ramos – UCL final is another chance to show we are the Kings of Europe
- Updated: May 16, 2018
Ahead of the UCL final night in Kiev, Sergio Ramos has insisted that the game would be another opportunity for Real Madrid to provide further proof that they are the undisputed kings of Europe.
Madrid will square off against Liverpool on May 26 in Kiev as both sides will do battle to add 1 more Champions League title to their European trophy haul, with Madrid looking to win the competition for the third consecutive time.
An eventual triumph for Los Blancos will be their fourth UEFA Champions League win in five years as they go into the game as firm favorites for the win.
“For us, to have a new opportunity to show that we are the kings of Europe is always positive,” said captain Ramos.
“It shows that, with hard work, sacrifice, effort and consistency over a long period of time, you can get rewarded and it will allow us to experience moments like this, in which we have the chance to play in another final and familiarise ourselves with what we have been doing over the past few seasons.
“We’ll try to repay our fans and bring them happiness by winning the Champions League – winning it for the third year running would be a dream.
“Let’s hope we can do it and bring the trophy that we want so badly home and celebrate with our people.”
Meanwhile, Luka Modric has admitted that Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool won’t be pushovers for his side considering their route to the finals which included wins against Manchester City and Roma.
“Maybe they were not among the favourites at the beginning, but when you look at the games they played, I think they deserve to be in this final,” added Modric.
“They have a good team, a good coach and we are expecting it to be a very difficult game, but we’ll be prepared.”
