has spoken about his personal desire to win the biggest prizes in Europe, in particular the which his side are within two games of winning.

The 25 year old said “I can say that I need to improve my heading – although that isn’t my main mission on the pitch, but there are many things. It’s not about me, it’s about what we achieve together. As a team we are in the race to finish second and to qualify for the Champions League again, so that’s good.”

“And especially in Europe we are dreaming because we are so close to the final. For me to win the Champions League would fulfil my great personal dream, it’s something I have always wanted to do.”

He continued, “It’s the kind of moment that you always desire and aim for as a sportsman. But we will need the maximum concentration and effort to get there. I consider this season to have been a positive one so far but we are still waiting for the most important moments in the season, so there is a lot to play for.”

Salah has scored against every team that Liverpool have come up against in the Champions League this season from the playoff places to now, having scored against Hoffenheim, Sevilla, Spartak Moscow, Maribor, Porto and Manchester City. While he has a brace against Roma already from the first leg, he will be hoping to add to his tally in the stadium that Salah called home for two fruitful seasons at Roma, where he truly made his name in European football.

Liverpool travel to Roma on Wednesday 2nd May with the match kicking off at 8:45PM Egyptian time. The Reds take a 5-2 lead to the Stadio Olimpico.
