Brazilian forward Rodrygo revealed that he and his Real Madrid teammates were determined to win the UEFA Champions League against Liverpool in order to make fun of Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian star sent a message to the Madridistas after they beat Manchester City in semi-final to join his side in final.

Salah said they ‘have a score to settle’ against Real Madrid in reference to the final they lost four years ago at Lisbon.

Unfortunately, the Pharaoh and his teammates bowed to the ‘King of Europ’ for the second time and Real Madrid players could not help mocking him.
