AS Roma star Mohamed Salah: I’m happy to be back
Salah marked his return from the AFCON with a goal in the 17th minute doubling Roma’s score at Stadio Olimpico in the 25th round of Italian Serie A as the Giallorossi sealed an important 4-1 win.
“We are doing well. Everyone is improving. We are certainly doing well at the moment, we want to continue like this and at the end, I hope we can win something,” Salah told Roma official website.
“I’m happy to be back,” he added. “At first I tried to help my country and, yes, we had bad luck in the final. But I’m happy to be back and to help my team.”
Since he returned, the Egyptian forward and Nainggolan were asked to play a bit close to Dzeko and Salah is often asked mid-match to switch to a more conventional winger’s role. The 24-year-old said that he has no problem being a bit closer to Edin Dzeko. “For me, I play whatever system the Mister chooses. I like to play both: I like to play outside and inside, for me, it doesn’t make a big difference,” Salah explained.
As for the goal he scored against Torino, Salah said: “It’s important to score a goal but the most important thing is the team wins, and Dzeko scores and whoever else scores. It’s not very important to score for me – of course I like to score, but the main thing is that the team wins.”
The young Pharaoh found it hard to choose the best goal in the match and thinks that all four were great.
AS Roma is currently second in the league with 56 points, seven points behind leaders Juventus and two above third-placed Napoli, and their next game will be against Villarreal at Stadio Olimpico on Thursday, February 23.
