Something special playing for Liverpool – Mo Salah

April 12, 2018

Salah celebrates after scoring the decisive away goal in the win over Manchester City

He has become the new darling of the Kop with 39 goals before the middle of April, a place in the semi-final of the Champions League secured and a top four Premier League finish within grasp.

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.’

‘The atmosphere in that first game against Man City was the first time I had really seen something like that.’

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.
