Klopp expects Salah to cope with Roma return


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed Mohamed Salah to cope well with a return to face former club AS Roma.

The Egypt international will have to take on his old team-mates after the two sides were drawn to face eachother in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

And it will mean a quick return to the Stadio Olimpico for the twenty-five year after he left the Serie A club to move to Anfield in a deal worth around £35m last Summer.

“For sure it will be interesting for Mo, but that shows all the quality of Roma.” Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com

“Everybody knows how big Mo’s impact on our season has been – and they’ve played a season without him.

“Where would they be if Mo was still there?

“It makes it a really interesting thing and for him, it will be 100% special.

“He is already of interest wherever we go, but it might go crazy when we go to Rome! He can deal with that, I am sure.” he finished.

Salah moved to Roma in August 2015 from Chelsea on a season long loan deal, before signing a permanent contract the following year.
