Latest Liverpool target Nabil Fekir was linked with Everton back in 2015


Though not as glamorous as the Champions League, the Europa league had major significance as apart from being just another trophy, the victor would go on to play the Champions League the following season.

The Liverpool boss continued to praise his players for the excellent campaign that has seen them arrive in the final.

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns as they prepare for the biggest game of their season with Real Madrid on Saturday in Kiev, according to the club's official website. Relegation was looming after a 2-0 loss to Everton left Liverpool only off the bottom of the Premier League on goal difference.

Andriy Shevchenko, the reigning Ballon d'Or victor, had scored 26 goals that semester and was partnered with Hernán Crespo in the Rossoneri attack to start at the Ataturk, with the fabulous Kaka in support.

There is no doubt that the player, who was announced as part of Didier Deschamps' World Cup squad earlier this month, has the ability to excel at the top level.

Tonight, is already Ronaldo's sixth final - his fifth in four years with Real Madrid, in addition to his 2007/08 final victory with Manchester United. Should the 19-year-old start Saturday against Madrid he would become the youngest player in the club's history to appear in a European final.

"It could have been different fans coming up to me and saying, 'Come to us" but 90 per cent of the supporters were Liverpool. "On away nights the resolve and effort of this group of highly talented players got us to the finals".

"Every single day in training throughout the season they have given everything and you get your rewards at the end of it".

Whether president Florentino Perez succeeds in his mission remains to be seen.

It would have been a European trophy, something that they had not won since 2005.

The circa €80m figure that Liverpool FC will accumulate is based on their participation in all previous rounds of the competition, from the qualifying rounds to the final.

Despite guiding the team to two consecutive Champions League triumphs and a third final in succession, Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has come under pressure following the team's meek surrender of LaLiga's title to fierce rivals Barcelona.

"They've been on a mission", Henry said.
