Champions League: Why Lucas Moura, Divock Origi may not start Tottenham, Liverpool final

0

Former Tottenham manager, Tim Sherwood, has named Liverpool striker, Divock Origi as one of the players that may not start for the Reds in the final in Madrid.

He said that Origi will have to return to the bench after the Belgian’s two goals helped Liverpool stun Barcelona in the semi-finals.

Origi struck twice in Liverpool’s 4-0 Champions League semi-final second leg win against Barcelona on Tuesday.

Sherwood said that Origi and Tottenham’s hero against Ajax last night,Lucas Moura, will both have to sit on the bench in the final if both Roberto Firmino and Harry Kane return to fitness in time to feature for their respective sides.

“The guy who is carrying the match ball home with him, Lucas Moura, he might not play in the final. That’s a footnote.

“He’ll be ready for that, Harry Kane. So, it’ll be an interesting team selection,” Sherwood told Sky Sports.

“It’s going to be a shame for Orgi, who has taken them to the final, and it’s going to be a shame for Lucas Moura. He won’t play. Harry Kane will be back in there. If he’s fit enough.”
