Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor has warned Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah to be careful what he wishes for after the Egyptian hinted that he was out for revenge against Real Madrid in the Champions League final.

Real Madrid made another stunning comeback last night to send Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City out of Europe’s elite competition and set up a repeat of the 2018 Champions League final.

The Reds and Los Blancos are set to face off again in Stade de France, Paris on May 28.

Salah went off injured early in the 2018 final and posted a message on social media immediately after Real Madrid’s win, writing on Instagram: “We have a score to settle.”

“I think Liverpool will be delighted with that result and that they’re playing Real Madrid again, but they shouldn’t be over delighted,” former Aston Villa captain Gabby Agbonlahor told talkSPORT.

“Mo Salah tweeted like he’s got a score to settle, but something that can come back to bite you.

“Real Madrid are no mugs. They showed last night they were the better team, they’ve still got some great players.

“And they can rest all their players for three weeks.

“LaLiga is won, they can get their feet up, get the massages in, a little bit of training, while Liverpool have got to play their best team every game.”
