Ex-Nigeria international striker Peter Odemwingie has backed Liverpool to win the UEFA Champions League trophy.
This comes after the Reds are set to face Real Madrid in the final after beating Italian Serie A side AS Roma 7-6 on aggregate in the semi-final on Tuesday night.
Odemwingie is keen to see the duo of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane win the UEFA Champions League.
“Mo Salah straight away comes to mind,” the former West Bromwich Albion player told Kingfut.com.
“Sadio Mane is there, hopefully they can win the Champions League. That will inspire them to do bigger things.
“It would give their teams a bit of confidence as well, that a boy like that is amongst us.”
Jurgen Klopp’s men will face reigning champions Madrid in the final in Kiev next month. Zinedine Zidane’s team edged out German champions Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate on Tuesday.
