Mohamed Salah has finally spoken out on Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid.

He posted on social media: ‘I cannot express in words how much we wanted to bring that trophy back to Liverpool but in the end we couldn’t.

‘I cannot thank the fans enough for your support. It has been a very long season but a part of me wishes the next one starts again tomorrow.’

On winning the PFA Player of the Year award, Salah added: ‘Being recognised by the fans and by the sports journalists in the same season is something special that I will never forget.

‘I would however give all those personal awards up for a chance at replaying that final, but that is not how football works.’
