Champions League: Roma send message to Salah after drawing Liverpool


AS Roma have sent a message to Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, after the Champions League draw that pitted the Italian side against the Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Salah moved to Roma to try and reinvent himself after a disastrous spell with Chelsea and it was at Roma where he made a name for himself.

Liverpool fans have been waiting on tenterhooks since Tuesday evening to find out their fate for the last four.

The Reds got handed the seemingly easier draw when they were paired with Roma on Friday.

It is the first time the two teams will meet since facing each other in the 2002 group stage.

The 25-year-old joined Liverpool from Roma last summer and has since established himself as one of the world’s most dangerous attackers.

The Serie A club wanted to make clear there was no bad blood on their side after the draw was made with a classy message on Twitter.

Roma wrote, “We’ll be opponents for 180 minutes, but whatever happens we’ll remain friends for life. Looking forward to seeing you again, @22mosalah!”

And Salah was quick to send a simple, yet effective reply “100%.”

He scored 34 goals and provided 24 assists in 83 games across all competitions for Roma.

He has gone from strength-to-strength at Anfield, finding the net 39 times in just 44 matches.
