Roma legend believes that Egyptian winger deserved the positive reception he received at the UAE last month.

Salah and Totti received huge applause from the fans who attended the Giallorossi’s recent friendly against Al Ahly at the UAE. The game, which was held at Hazza Ben Zayed Stadium in May, ended with a 4-3 win for the Egyptian giants.

“I would never have expected the kind of reception I received. Salah is from that area and there was a huge roar when the fans saw him. He deserves that, as a player and a person,” the 39-year-old Italian forward told AS Roma official website.

Totti, who signed a one-year contract extension with Roma on Tuesday, expressed his delight with the reception he received from the crowd.

“On a personal level, obviously it’s really gratifying – when you travel to other parts of the world and get a similar reaction, it means you’ve achieved something in football,” he added.
