Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp has revealed that they are not desperate to revenge their loss in the final of the 2018 Champions League.
Saturday’s Paris showpiece is a repeat of the final four years ago in Kyiv, which Madrid won 3-1.
Forward Mohamed Salah, who went off injured in that match after a tussle with Sergio Ramos, has said Liverpool have a “score to settle”.
“This was a harsh night for us – it was tough to take,” said Klopp.
“But I don’t believe in revenge or think revenge is a fantastic idea,” he added.

“If we get the chance to win it this time it will be a great story, but it will not be because of what happened in 2018.”
Klopp also said Thiago Alcantara has a “good chance” of recovering to play at Stade de France.
The Spain midfielder was substituted at half-time of the Reds’ 3-1 win over Wolves in their final Premier League game on Sunday with an Achilles injury.
“He will train this afternoon,” Klopp said.
“At the moment it looks like he can be part of training tomorrow. That would be really helpful.
“It’s surprisingly good. After the game I was not really positive about it, but we got news that night that it doesn’t look that bad. We will see.”
Klopp has been married twice. He was previously wedded to Sabine and they have a son, Marc (born 1988), who has played for a number of German clubs including FSV Frankfurt under-19s, KSV Klein-Karben, SV Darmstadt 98, Borussia Dortmund II and the Kreisliga side VfL Kemminghausen 1925. On 5 December 2005, Klopp married social worker and children’s writer Ulla Sandrock. They met at a pub during an Oktoberfest celebration that same year. She has a son, Dennis, from a previous marriage. On 10 February 2021, Klopp confirmed that his mother, Elisabeth, had died; he was unable to attend her funeral in Germany due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
Klopp is a Lutheran who has referred to his faith in public, citing the importance of his beliefs in a media interview. He turned to religion more seriously after the death of his father, who was a Catholic, from liver cancer in 1998.
