CLASS ACT: Roma's Message To Mo Salah Wins
It hurts to see your former player coming back to kick you out of a major competition, but Roma are not whining over Mohammed Salah.
The former Roma star helped Liverpool into the Champions League final at the expense of his former club, particularly with his brace in the first leg.
Out of respect for the two glittering seasons he spent with the Giallorossi, he refused to celebrate those two goals.
There is no better way to appease the fans and get the blessing of the club, and love is exactly what they have shown in return.
It hurts so much that #ASRoma’s incredible dream of going all the way to Kiev is over but you’ll be there in your new colours.— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) May 2, 2018

After initially failing to make the grade at Chelsea, Salah spent two seasons on loan in the Serie A, first at Fiorentina then at Roma before joining the Giallorossi on a permanent deal in 2016.
After just one season as a Roma player, however, Salah went back to the Premier League and the rest, as they say, is history.
He’s made a mockery of his €50 million fee, scoring goals for fun and breaking a plethora of records on the way as he has powered Liverpool to their first UEFA Champions League final in over a decade.
The UEFA Champions League final takes place on May 26 in Kiev and Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid await Salah and his Liverpool gang.
