Arsenal legend Thierry Henry sent a brutal message to Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, criticizing his ‘revenge’ comments ahead of Real Madrid clash.
The Reds suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Real Madrid at the Stade de France in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
With nine attempts on Thibaut Courtois’ goal, Liverpool still failed to find the breakthrough after goalkeeping heroics from the Belgian.
On the other hand, Real Madrid managed to score against the run of play in the second half as Vinicius Junior was on target for Los Blancos after 59 minutes.
A few days before the clash, Salah said that he was looking forward to revenging against Madrid as the Spanish club had previously beaten Liverpool in the 2018 final.
Salah’s comments backfired on him as his side suffered another defeat to the same team, and Thierry Henry criticized the Egyptian for speaking too early.
“We have said it so many times, it’s about putting the ball into the back of the net,” Henry said.
“They (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.”
