Ox talks up the opportunity of playing in the Champions League final

June 11, 2019

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is hoping to be involved in the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur after missing the occasion during the previous campaign. The England international picked up a serious knee injury during the semi-final stage of the competition against AS Roma and that meant that he missed the final against Real Madrid which the Reds lost by a 3-1 scoreline.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have managed to redeem themselves by making another final of the Champions League and Oxlade-Chamberlain is optimistic of playing some part in Madrid after recovering from the long-term injury setback, he told the club’s official website: “Dreams are made of maybe having some part to play in Madrid. But it’s not about me – it’s about making sure whoever is on the pitch does the job for the club and for the team. If I can be involved, that would be amazing, but just to be around it and be fit and healthy again is good for me as well at the minute.”

The 24-year-old initially struggled to make an impact with Liverpool, but Klopp is pleased that the former Arsenal man is adjusting quickly to the club’s style of play.
