Virgil Van Dijk has said that he is ready for the final finally after a crazy semi-final clash against Barcelona.

“I could not sleep much [after Barcelona], maybe two hours,” the defender told the Guardian. “It was totally crazy.

“From the moment we arrived at the stadium, you had the feeling it could be something special. When Divock Origi scored that early goal, you could feel the belief. Everything was perfect that night.

“It wasn’t like we had luck. We totally deserved it because anyone would say a team 3-0 down against Barcelona is not going to do it. Messi’s going to score – and if they scored one, it was almost impossible.

“But we did it. It was nuts. You can’t really describe it. Hopefully we can finish it off now and make an even bigger memory.”

“We’re not thinking about losing or how we’re going to overcome this barrier of losing the Premier League by one point, then losing the Champions League,” he said.

“That’s not worth thinking about. I’m thinking about playing to our best ability with all our talent and experience.

“I read that if we win the Champions League, our next two games are the Community Shield and European Super Cup. We can win three cups in three games. It’s something we strive for.

“We were close in the Premier League, but now we have a chance to win the Champions League, the big one. We’re going to give it everything we’ve got.”
