It has been a debut season to remember for Mohamed Salah, and now he is fully immersing himself in the culture of the city of Liverpool.
And as he takes a trip around The Beatles Story on the Albert Dock, and poses as Ringo Starr, he admits to CNN: ‘There’s something very special about playing for Liverpool.’
The 25-year-old scored home and away as Liverpool thrashed Manchester City 5-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals this week.
And he admits the first-leg, a 3-0 win at Anfield last week, was a special occasion for everyone involved at the club.
‘The Champions League nights are special for the fans too,’ he said.
‘You can feel it on the streets.’
GOLDEN BOOT RACE:
29: Mohamed Salah, Liverpool
25: Harry Kane, Tottenham
21: Sergio Aguero, Manchester City
16: Raheem Sterling, Manchester City
16: Jamie Vardy, Leicester
Salah adds that he and his team-mates believed they could upset the runaway Premier League leaders.
He added: ‘When we saw the draw, everyone knew it would be a difficult game.
‘I knew it would be difficult but I said we had to be positive and win. That’s what we did.’
Jurgen Klopp and Co will learn their semi-final fate when the draw takes place on Friday morning, with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Roma also in the bag.
