UCL: Salah takes preparations for Real Madrid to Marbella

Champions League By: Ambrose Udeme | 12/05/2018

Mohamed Salah and his Liverpool team-mates will prepare for the UEFA Champions League final less than 600 kilometres away from their opponents Real Madrid in the Spanish capital.

Marca reports Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has chosen to take the team to Marbella for a three-day training camp from May 16 to May 19. They will be based at the Marbella Football Centre, where conditions will be perfect with temperatures expected to be between 16 and 22 degrees Celsius.

The team will stay in La Quinta Gold Resort & Spa de Marbella, a five-star hotel which is surrounded by views of the Sierra Blanca mountain range and the Mediterranean sea and is just 10 minutes from Marbella by car.

Klopp will begin preparing his side for Kiev next week after ending the Premier League season on Sunday against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Reds need a point at Anfield to secure Champions League qualification whilst a home defeat to the Seagulls would open the door to Chelsea if they can beat Rafa Benitez's Newcastle United.
