Liverpool have spoken to Max Kruse about a free transfer switch

The team arrived at Liverpool Airport on Sunday afternoon and mounted buses that read "Champions of Europe" after celebrating Saturday's win in Madrid through the early hours of the morning.

However, the Brazilian may not have ended up at Liverpool at all had it not been for the events that transpired in last year's Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Mo Salah scored a penalty for Liverpool in the first two minutes of the game after a handball from Sissoko.

And it was looking at the picture from a year ago in the hours before kick-off on Saturday that fired Salah up to ensure this was to be a final to remember for the right reasons.

"I didn't look at the picture for a long time". It was something to motivate me to win.

Serena Williams loss doesn't mean my next round is easier, says Barty
It was only the third tour-level loss by Williams to an American player younger than her in 42 career matches at any tournament. One of the most aggressive players in the women's game, Osaka squandered all seven break points she created in the first set.

Explaining his decisions, Mourinho said: "I go to Alisson, especially because [in the final] he was there when the needed him to be there".

"We were a little bit disappointed after that final but now we are back and we have won it again - the sixth time for Liverpool". Yeah, of course. Absolutely.

"They are physical, they are aggressive, they are what I call in football "the good arrogance", they are not afraid to play, they go forward, they participate in attack". "I scored a penalty to send Egypt to the World Cup after 28 years in the last minute, so that (in the final) was easier", he said.

Linda Pizzuti Henry, the wife of Liverpool FC owner John W Henry, took to social media to express her pride at seeing the Reds win the Champions League on Saturday.
