Mo Salah celebrated a much improved Champions League final as he scored the opening goal for Liverpool against Spurs in a 2-0 win in Madrid.

Salah was injured in last year's final defeat by Real Madrid after a collision with Sergio Ramos, and was delighted to have completed the full match on Saturday night.

The Egyptian striker said: "I don't know what to say. Everyone is happy now.

"I'm glad to play 90 minutes in a final, finally! It wasn't a special performance for anyone - congratulations to all of us."

Salah has previously spoken out against VAR, but after the spot-kick award changed his mind, saying: "What I said is 'we will see VAR next season', but I like it now anyway.
