Mohamed Salah and a late one from Divock Origi gave Liverpool a 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s all-English Champions League final. Coach Jurgen Klopp finally got his hands on Europe’s biggest prize of his career.
Egyptian striker Salah, who finished last year’s final in a defeat by Real Madrid after suffering a shoulder injury, got his side off to a flying start in Madrid by lashing home from the penalty spot after a handball from Moussa Sissoko.
Salah said, “I am glad to play the second final in a row and play 90 minutes finally. Everyone did his best today, no great individual performances, all the team was unbelievable. Everyone is happy now.”

Tottenham kept their heads after a nightmare opening and came to life when semi final hat-trick hero Lucas Moura came off the bench but, with Harry Kane lacked sharpness after the ankle injury.
Liverpool, who missed out on the Premier League title to Manchester City by one point, sealed a sixth European Cup triumph.
