How can you not love Francesco Totti?
The genius Italian made his AS Roma debut in 1992 and played his final game in 2017, making 786 appearances in total and scoring over 300 goals.
He also won Serie A at the turn of the century and the World Cup with his country in 2006.
Totti has spent time talking about Mo Salah and how despite the Egyptian doing brilliantly with him at Roma, it was the right choice to move to Merseyside two years ago.
“Sincerely I felt very sorry for every player who has left the team,” Totti told beIN SPORTS.
“Because when you stay with someone day after day, you can understand what kind of person he is.
“So this happened with Salah, Alisson and other players who left Roma, it’s normal in that moment, you feel very sorry.
“But with Mo I had a particular relation, in fact every time he played and scored with me, he always told me he felt like a different player because he had fun playing with me.
“And he liked the way I put him in front of goal with my assists, he is an exceptional person and a true man who gave a lot to the club.
“But at the end unfortunately in life you have to make decisions and we have to respect his, I think he made the right decision to go to Liverpool because they are one of the most important clubs in Europe.
“They’ve won many trophies so a top player like him should play in at a top club like Liverpool, we’re still in touch by message and I’m very happy to say I met a great person and a great player.”
At Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, Salah has established himself as one of the world’s best footballers.
In his debut campaign he bagged 44, firing us to the Champions League Final. This season, he’s on 21 goals – still exceptional considering he’s a winger – as we enter the run-in for the Premier League title.
It would be monumental if Salah could continue channelling his best-self and arrive in the big moments from now until mid-May.
The title would secure Salah as an all-time Liverpool legend, as would the Champions League – of which we have arguably just as good a shot.
