Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are preparing to face off in the finals of the European cup better known as the UEFA Champions League.
It has been an exciting year for the English countries in Europe with four teams making it to the two finals of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.
The contenders for the Europa League winners are Arsenal and Chelsea whose final is also next week.
Their is some obvious rivalry in the domestic sense between these clubs and now it has been taken to the international boundaries. The tensions are rising and clubs not only want their own success but also do not want their domestic rivals to succeed anywhere else.
The case is so extreme that Arsenal star Alex Iwobi is not only concerned about his own win but also wants his domestic north London rival Tottenham to lose and hence has made a plea to Liverpool to beat the White side of north London.
Iwobi told Sky Sports: “We’re not trying to focus on Tottenham to be fair, I actually hope they lose. We’re not trying to look at them, they’ve done well to be fair, you have to give it to them, but we want to focus on ourselves and bring a trophy back.”
