Roma, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah promise to stay 'friends for life' after UCL semi

Mohamed Salah will return to Roma with the chance to help put Liverpool in the Champions League final.

There is no ill-feeling from the Italian side towards Salah following his departure to Liverpool in the summer.

In fact, Roma tweeted shortly after Friday's draw about how they were excited to see the Egyptian once again and that there would only be a competitive rivalry across the two legs.

The Italian club did so using a typically adorable gif of the Egypt star.

Those sentiments were wholeheartedly echoed by Liverpool's record-breaking forward.

Salah will revisit the Stadio Olimpico on May 2 for the second leg of the semifinal tie.

Roma also supported their former player with a cheeky dig at Harry Kane.

The Tottenham forward went to great lengths to claim his side's winner against Stoke last weekend, with the Premier League's dubious goals panel awarding him a goal that keeps him within four strikes of Salah in the race for the Premier League golden boot.
