MO SALAH shared a touching hug with his former Roma team-mates before he went on to put them to the sword in the Champions League semi-finals.

The Liverpool winger, 25, has netted 43 goals in all competitions this season and continued a run of form that is simply out of this world.

But part of what makes him such a special player is his humble nature and the fact that he does not forget old friends.

And there was no chance he would forget his pals at former club Roma, as he embraced Radja Nainggolan and what appears to be one of Roma’s directors.

All the niceties ended there though, as Salah ran riot against his former team-mates, cutting in from the left after 36 minutes to bend an effort off the far post and inside for a stunning goal.

He then scored another, racing on to a through ball to dink the ball over Giallorossi keeper Alisson as it rolled over the line for 2-0.

In the second half it did not get any easier for the former Chelsea and Fiorentina man, as he turned supplier for goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

The Italian media have this morning reacted with surprise that Roma sold Salah for so cheap after his display.


DAVE KIDD As for Mo Salah, no Egyptian has screwed the Romans like that since Cleopatra


Sporting director Monchi admitted he had to flog the Egyptian for £34.4million, while the fee could eventually rise to £44.4m, but he was constrained by Financial Fair Play.

“It’s true, I gave up Salah, but forced by Uefa constraints.

“Last year we were forced to sell by June 30th and if we had not done it that day we would not be in the Champions League semi-finals.

“Our accounts were under strict control from Uefa and when I arriived there was an offer of [£26m], then with the bonuses it went up to [£44m].”
