Al-Khelaifi told RMC Sport: “It’s a historic evening. This is the first time that we have gone to the Champions League final. The players, they had a magnificent match, it’s a magnificent evening against a difficult team.”
“I am proud of the technical staff. We played great matches after difficult times. Now we will play the final. This is a dream. I hope he will continue. I don’t know what to say because it’s a wonderful evening.”
He further added: “For me, the supporters are very important, they are not there with us.”
“I know they have a heart with us, it is something magnificent. We’ve been waiting for this victory for a long time, this historic evening, it’s for you [the supporters].”
“Our dream is the Champions League. We’re close. I said to the players: ‘Tonight, you had a magnificent match but we must not stop here, we want to win in the final’. I do not say a result but for football, my players want to give everything. I am very proud of everyone.”
