Mousa Dembele wishes Tottenham luck before Champions League final with Liverpool

Ex-Tottenham midfielder Mousa Dembele has wishes his side luck before their European showdown with Liverpool on Saturday night.

Spurs face off against Liverpool in Madrid for the Champions League trophy and have the chance to make history.

Dembele was a major favourite during his spell in North London, but he left the club in January to join Chinese club Guangzhou R&F.

The 31-year-old played twice during this season’s Champions League group stage for Spurs and is hoping his former teammates can win the trophy.

He’s a monstrous central midfielder that was a rock in the centre of the park for several years and Moussa Sissoko appears to have taken up a similar role of late for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.

 

“I just want to wish you guys good luck, enjoy this. Shame for myself that I’m not there anymore, but I don’t know anyone who deserves it more than you to be honest. Enjoy it, go get it, good luck, love you guys,” Dembele said, as quoted by the club’s official Twitter account.

TBR’s View:

Many still feel that Dembele could be doing a job in the Spurs midfield, but they are managing quite alright without him and eventually injuries were starting to catch up with him.

Spurs could start with a midfield axis of Sissoko and Harry Winks against Liverpool, which is a combination starting to really blossom in recent months.

But they are likely to come up against an industrious Liverpool midfield trio, who have been so key to the success of Jurgen Klopp’s team.

It’s likely to be a contest played at great speed between two Premier League teams and the midfield battle could be crucial.
