Liverpool FC update on Roma away travel

Posted April 30, 2018

Salah this week took his goal tally for the campaign to 43 with a brace in Liverpool's 5-2 win against Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final.

AS Roma in a statement condemned in the strongest possible terms "the abhorrent behaviour of a small minority of travelling fans who brought shame on the club and the vast majority of Roma's well-behaved supporters". Some of Salah's corners were exceptional.

Liverpool will rue their missed chances and poor late defending, but remain well on course for a first final in 11 years."Since I arrived Liverpool always had to take a slightly more hard way, but, in the end, mostly still a successful way and that's what we will try in Roma", said Klopp. "Roma will be better at home, but Liverpool just tore them to shreds".

However, Salah's journey to where he is at with Liverpool today started long before he arrived in Switzerland.

It also came just a few weeks before Neymar's move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for a world record 222 million euros revolutionised the transfer market.

"At the moment, you would probably say least for another season".

"Salah has impressed more people in the game, that's a matter of fact". "I think the team back him". This is, however, the epoch of Salah and he can make it unique by winning the Champions League, which is what I wish.

Salah delivered a virtuoso performance in the 5-2 thumping of the Giallorossi, scoring two goals and laying another pair to strike partners Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to hand the Reds a massive first-leg advantage.

Lovren believes Jurgen Klopp's style at Liverpool is flawless for Salah, who arrived from Roma in the off-season.

"Unstoppable (when Salah's on the pitch)", said the back page of The Times.

Roma produced one of the finest comebacks in Champions League history by overturning a 4-1 first-leg deficit against Barcelona in the quarter-finals.

For once it is Salah's turn to lead the way where Messi faltered on his return to the Eternal City next week.

With Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana potentially out for the rest of the season and Can also injured, Klopp is short of midfield cover outside of Henderson, Milner and Wijnaldum for Liverpool's final three Premier League games and, potentially, two more games in the Champions League.

That sums him up, really, a player content to leave the glory to others.
