Revealed: Drake's God's Plan single to fire up Liverpool ahead of Champions League final

The Reds will turn to the music mega-star's 2018 smash hit to provide their motivation before they take on Real Madrid

Jordan Henderson is the dressing room DJ charged with firing up Liverpool for Saturday's Champions League final against Real Madrid - and Drake's 2018 single God's Plan is set to soundtrack their Kiev clash.

The Reds face a giant task in their hunt for a sixth European crown when they take on reigning champions Madrid in Saturday's final at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium.

The players will have to be in the right frame of mind if they are to unseat Zinedine Zidane's side from their throne and goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has revealed that captain Henderson will pick the right music to hype his team-mates up.

"Hendo is in charge of the music," the Belgian told the Liverpool Echo .  "The moment we arrive in the dressing room after getting off the coach the physios put the playlist on.

"I don’t get involved but it's a real mix. Alberto Moreno has his Spanish songs and Roberto Firmino has a couple in Portuguese.

"We have a certain playlist for just before a game. It's always the same sequence."

And the England international's playlist will be building up to the ultimate motivational track, making Drake's track 'God's Plan' the prophetic climax.

"The last song that gets played before we step out on to the pitch is 'God's Plan. Then it's down to business."

While Drake goes hard on Southside G, Liverpool will be going hard in the NSC.

As Mark Lawrenson said, Champions League glory may be written in Liverpool's destiny. It might just be God's Plan.
