Real Madrid are on the cusp of something historical as the Whites challenge Liverpool for their third consecutive Champions League Final. The Whites defeated Atletico Madrid on penalties in 2016, they defeated Juventus 4-1 in 2017 and now they face England’s most successful European club, Liverpool. The reds have not made it to the Champions League Final since that historic victory in Istanbul back in 2005.
Real Madrid players talked to media during the press conference for the Champions League Final. We look back at some of the best quotes from the media day.
Toni Kroos: “Playing one final is difficult, two very hard, and three crazy. This hasn’t happened before and I don’t know if it will happen again but we look for the third consecutive title.”
Isco: “I feel very important and valued in Madrid. In the end all the rumours that Isco is leaving and he is not happy are a lie.”
Dani Carvajal: “Before PSG we couldn’t stop watching videos of Cavani and Mbappe, but then we played them and realised we were were like ‘f**k, were aren’t so bad’.”
Marcelo: “I don’t think this season is a disaster. We’ll see what happens after the final, media will either kill us or praise us.”
Sergio Ramos: “On the way to the final we’ve beaten some very good teams, so it’s no coincidence that Real Madrid are playing in another final.”
Cristiano Ronaldo: “The most important thing is for the team to win, it doesn’t matter who scores. We want to make history.”
