Sometimes there is bitterness when a club sells one of its best players.
If Liverpool had given in to Barcelona and offloaded Coutinho this summer, the Brazilian would have become public enemy no.1 considering the manner in which he handed in his transfer request…
But Roma hold no hard feelings towards Mo Salah, despite him joining us for the massive bargain price £34m.
Upon hearing that he won Liverpool’s Player of the Month award for August, Roma tweeted that their former Egyptian flyer would secure the gong every month until the end of the year!

In fairness, the 25-year-old has taken English football by storm, having failed to make his mark at Chelsea a few years ago.
Salah has three goals in all competitions and has revolutionised our attack, providing another pacy option in behind the opposition defence alongside Sadio Mane.
Together, they’ll wreak havoc in 2017/18.
