With Real Madrid and Liverpool set to meet in the UEFA Champions League final next weekend, it has now been claimed that Brazilian fullback Marcelo is petrified of coming up against African superstar Mohamed Salah.

The winger has been in fantastic touch all season, during which he has hit the back of the net regularly for the Reds and caused trouble to many defences.

Egyptian legend Mohamed Aboutrika has now explained why he believes Real's Marcelo is scared of the 25-year-old, and that Jurgen Klopp's side have a big chance of winning the European final next Saturday.  

"Liverpool have a big chance to win the Champions League against Real Madrid," he said, according to the Daily Star.

"I witnessed on that pitch what Salah can do to Marcelo during the Olympic Games. I was playing with Egypt against Brazil. Marcelo is terrified of Salah.

"I noticed the same thing in the Champions League, when Roma played against Real."

Arsenal Finally Identify Wenger Replacement?

Salah has scored 44 goals and assisted a further 16 strikes in 51 games for the Reds this season, with 10 of his strikes coming in the Champions League.

Do you think Salah will get the better of Marcelo next weekend? Let us know in the comments section below.

Zidane will probably try and have that Brazilian that he hired to follow Messi around to do the same thing to Salah coz if he doesn't then i foresee major problems for the overlaping Marcelo in that side of the pitch. I honestly do not see Madrid winning this one but ey Madrid have won it playing dirty and with the refferees help b4. So we're still yet to see what will happen

@Mr are spot on, Liverpool is not in the finals by fluke.......they have contested and earned their place in Ukraine. Those 3 are going to give us a run for our money.......,yes our lads respect them.....,.,as for “being scared of them”......,.that Claim is baseless and it bothers on a groupie mentality........from Aboutrika’s part.

Aboutrika is smoking something very toxic.....Marcelo has been to 4 UEFA CL finals and is going for the 3rd back-to-back one. The next thing he is busy claiming that a UEFA CL wannabe scares the seasoned superstar of this competition.......he is surely intoxicated by something very strong.
