How Would a Liverpool Treble Compare to Man United’s in 1999?

If Liverpool FC beat Real Madrid on Saturday, in the UEFA Champions League Final, it will make 2021-22 a trophy treble for them this season. Having already won the FA Cup and League Cup titles, it will be a “cup treble.” They almost had a chance at a quadruple, having come up just one point shy in the Premier League table to Manchester City. But how would this accomplishment compare and contrast to the treble that Manchester United won in 1989-99?

This very question was put forth on the CBS Sports UCL Final Preview press call yesterday, with United club legend Peter Schmeichel and Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.

Jamie Carragher Admires Mo Salah Being Honest About His UCL Revenge Motivation

Kylian Mbappe Admits He Considered a Move to Liverpool FC

Liverpool FC and Real Madrid will meet in Paris in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday night. It’s a Kylian Mbappe love triangle as both teams in the matchup looked into signing the Frenchman. They’ll wage ware in the home stadium of where Mbappe will continue playing his club football, as the forward told a news conference on Monday that his decision to shockingly snub Madrid, and instead stay put with PSG was not all about the money but instead for the “sporting project.”

Saturday brings the Champions League Final, and it’s a match-up of two of the most successful sides in UCL history, with Real Madrid having won a record 13 European Cups, and Liverpool FC joint-third in the all-time rankings with six. It’s a clash between the La Liga champions and a Liverpool team who missed out on the Premier League title by just one point on the final day of the season.

And for Liverpool winger Mo Salah, it takes on an added level of significance. When these two teams met in the 2018 edition of the final, his night ended early as Madrid central defender Sergio Ramos made a very aggressive challenge and injured him. Ramos injured Salah so badly that the Egyptian magician wasn’t fully himself for the World Cup that summer, and he wasn’t even ready to play for his national team at the start of the tournament.
