Real Madrid’s Luka Modric told Mohamed Salah to “try again next time” after Liverpool’s Champions League final defeat in Paris, according to Rodrygo.

Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 on May 28 to become European Champions for a record-extending 14th time.

Ahead of the game, Salah spoke about his wish to avenge Liverpool’s 3-1 loss to Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final.

Brazil international Rodrygo, who came on as a late substitute for Madrid in Paris, recalled a scene that happened after the game at the Stade de France.

Rodrygo told Cortes Podcast:

I have a funny anecdote.

Once the final was over, we [Madrid players] lined up and Liverpool [players] went by. A depleted Salah passed by.

Modric was in front of me, he greeted him [Salah] and told him “Ok, ok, you try again next time.

Unlike the 2018 final where Salah was forced to leave the pitch after 30 minutes due to injury, a moment he described as “the worst” of his career, the Egypt forward did play the entire game in Paris.
