Jordan Henderson: ‘City don’t stop at one trophy … we want more and more’

The Liverpool captain is determined that a Champions League final win over Spurs would be just the beginning for his side

It is easy to see Liverpool’s place in the Champions League final on Saturday as a shot at redemption, a chance to make up for last year’s final disappointment and to gain tangible reward after a tremendous effort this season, though Jordan Henderson happens to take a longer-term view.

“No matter what the outcome of the final, we still need to push on and make progress next season,” the Liverpool captain says. “Even if we win it, it is still important to us all to win more trophies next season. Don’t get me wrong, this is a big game coming up, a massive opportunity, but whatever happens in Madrid, we’ll keep going and keep improving. This final isn’t all or nothing as far as the team’s progress is concerned. We are a young team, we know we can still get better.”

Spurs’ Champions League dream may hinge on Kane call, admits Pochettino

Guardian - lør, 25/05/2019 - 23:29

• Manager says decision on striker’s role in Madrid will be critical
• Sánchez, Winks and Vertonghen should also be fit to play

Mauricio Pochettino says Harry Kane is on course to be fit for Saturday’s Champions League final against Liverpool and the Tottenham manager suggested he would live or die by the decision to use him as a starter or substitute.

Pochettino, who also reported that Dávinson Sánchez, Harry Winks and Jan Vertonghen ought to be available after injury, was keen to discuss how each member of his 25-man squad was equally important. But Kane’s readiness to take on Liverpool in the wake of the ankle ligament damage he suffered in the first leg of the quarter-final against Manchester City on 9 April has become an unavoidable talking point.

While the old format never produced a same-nation final, this will be the seventh since 2000, as England steps into the void left by Spain. But there is no point weeping over lost romance

Richard Scudamore retired too soon! No sooner had the Premier League’s executive chairman picked up his parachute payment and left the building than his most famous daft idea became reality. The 39th game, the extra helping of Premier League razzle dazzle featuring two top-flight sides facing off in some far-flung location for prestige and promotional purposes, is actually happening next Wednesday in Baku, except people will insist on calling it the Europa League final. Three days later the same thing will happen again in Madrid. Even Scudamore never proposed a 40th Premier League game, but that is what the Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs is going to resemble.
