Speaking to La Repubblica, Strootman implied that himself and Salah will not be friends on the pitch, saying: “Salah is definitely the most dangerous player right now and we won’t be friends on the pitch.

“I’ve tried to call him lately but he doesn’t pick up the phone. He must have changed his number like six times. I will write to him after the semi-final!

“I’m not surprised at how well he’s doing but just at how easy he scores the goals and how confident he is in front of goal with the ball.

“Here he did a great job and did a lot of great assists and goals but he missed a lot of chances, especially one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

“I am surprised by how many goals he has scored so far but not how he plays. Here he was a nightmare for opponents and in England he is doing the same.

“He just creates the chances himself and finds it easy in front of the goal. I think it is confidence which is the main difference. Now you see if he has a chance and he misses it, the next time he knows he will score.

“I just hope in the two games against us he loses his confidence. We have special tactics (for Salah) but I’m not going the share it!,” he concluded.

The first leg of the semi-final between both sides is set to take place at Anfield on Tuesday and kick-off is at 18:45 GMT.
