Italian club Roma will face Premier League side Liverpool in the semi-finals of the Champions League this season.

The 25-years-old received the most combined votes from a panel of experts, Premier League captains and fans to claim the award ahead of five other nominees: Son Heung-min, Romelu Lukaku, David Silva, Cenk Tosun and Chris Wood.

The 25-year-old is the running to become PFA Player of the Year and is now on course to win the Premier League's Golden Boot, with Salah's 29 league goals giving him a four-goal margin over Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane. I love the fans there and they love me too. It was in the German interview and he asked me pretty much the same question. "I was watching him against just last week in the Europa League and my goodness, this guy will probably give us what we've lacked".

"Of course, I have happy memories. We had a good time in the dressing room".

"He is awesome, unbelievable", says Salah. "I like him. I've relationship with him, he is excellent".

"I'm very proud to see myself fighting to break the (goalscoring) record for the Premier League", Salah added.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has urged his side to remain "angry and greedy" as the race for the Champions League qualification enters the final run-in.

The Reds great is delighted with the unprecedented success of the attacker whose 39 goals so far have come in only 44 games.

Klopp said: "City took a risk with their line-up but I always knew we had the chance to score one or two".

"All people went into the quarterfinal with this emotion that we've now to win, we'll do it. Now with the semifinal, it's two games to the last step".

The first leg will be at Anfield on April 24, with the return leg in Rome taking place the following week.

He now leads the Premier League's Golden Boot race with 29 goals, four ahead of Tottenham star Harry Kane.

Liverpool's German manager Jurgen Klopp shouts instructions to his players from the touchline during a match.

The decision was met with surprise by Salah, who tweeted: "Wooooooow really?" after hearing the news.

"I don't think, I know he will be here". And it is clear from the messages coming from the official Roma social media team that the fondness between club and player remains. I don't doubt Harry Kane a little bit.
