Real Madrid midfielder, Fede Valverde, has said that Mohamed Salah’s comment where he said Liverpool “have a score to settle” with the LaLiga champions in the Champions League final shows a lack of respect.

Salah admitted he wanted to face Los Blancos instead of Manchester City in Paris.

The Egypt superstar is hoping to avenge the 3-1 loss to Madrid in the 2018 final.

But Valverde believes the best way to reply to Salah is by ensuring they win the game on May 28.

“Obviously they are words that everyone can take however they want. I’m his opponent and it’s like disrespecting the Real Madrid badge, the players,” the 23-year-old Uruguay international said as quoted by Anfield Watch.

“The only thing we must do is give our best, try to show why we’re in the final, and let’s hope we can give another trophy to the fans and to Real Madrid.”
