Roma send message to Salah after drawing Liverpool

Published

on

AS Roma have sent a message to Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, after the Champions League draw that pitted the Italian side against the Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Salah moved to Roma to try and reinvent himself after a disastrous spell with Chelsea and it was at Roma where he made a name for himself.

Liverpool fans have been waiting on tenterhooks since Tuesday evening to find out their fate for the last four.

The Reds got handed the seemingly easier draw when they were paired with Roma on Friday.

It is the first time the two teams will meet since facing each other in the 2002 group stage.

The 25-year-old joined Liverpool from Roma last summer and has since established himself as one of the world’s most dangerous attackers.

The Serie A club wanted to make clear there was no bad blood on their side after the draw was made with a classy message on Twitter.

Roma wrote, “We’ll be opponents for 180 minutes, but whatever happens we’ll remain friends for life. Looking forward to seeing you again, @22mosalah!”

And Salah was quick to send a simple, yet effective reply “100%.”

He scored 34 goals and provided 24 assists in 83 games across all competitions for Roma.

Fans fume over use of VAR in Champions League clash between Man city and Schalke

Manchester City fans are adamant VAR has been used against them in their Champions League clash with Schalke this evening.

The German side were awarded two penalties in the first half to send the German side 2-1 up after 45 minutes.

And it has since emerged the television screen the referee is supposed to be able to use was not functioning.

Sergio Aguero gave Manchester City an early lead before Schalke were awarded their first penalty.

That was for a contentious handball by Nicolas Otamendi.
They were then punished a second time as Fernandinho fouled his man.

And that left City fans raging on social media.

One said: “What in the world is going on? City dominating. #VAR is now up 2-1 vs #ManCity.”

Another added: “It’s a shocking decision. The player is actively trying to avoid the ball and VAR goes against him. @ChampionsLeague sick decision. @ManCity unjustly punished there.”

A third explained: “Man City re getting robbed by the VAR…”
Ex-City midfielder Michael Brown was adamant the first penalty should not have been given.

He said: “There’s no way it’s deliberate handball.

“Otamendi gets set, sees he’s in trouble, that it’s heading towards his arm.

“He very quickly tries to put it behind his back but the ball is hit that quick at his arm that he can’t get it out of the way.”
Brown also criticised how long it took for a decision to be made with the use of VAR.

He added: “It was probably the longest VAR in history deciding the right decision.

“I don’t think they knew. Then finally they give the penalty.”

Late goals from Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling gave Manchester City a 3-2 win at Schalke in their Champions League Round of 16 first leg.

Substitute Sane scored against his former club with a sensational free kick in the 86th after Nabil Bentaleb converted two spot kicks in the 38th and 45th minutes to put Schalke ahead.

Sergio Aguero had given City the lead in the 18th and the English champions were left with 10 men in the 68th minute when Nicolas Otamendi was sent off following a second booking.

City, who have conceded at least two goals in six of their seven games in the Champions League knockout stages under Pep Guardiola, will also be without yellow-carded Fernandinho for the return leg in Manchester on March 12.

Chelsea told to appoint former EPL manager as Sarri’s replacement

Former Arsenal goalkeeper, David Seaman, has told Chelsea to appoint former Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger as Maurizio Sarri’s replacement at Stamford Bridge.

Seaman believes Wenger would be a great choice to replace Sarri at the West London club.

He stated this ahead of Chelsea’s UEFA Europa League round of 32 second-leg tie with Malmo on Thursday night.

Sarri, who joined Chelsea last summer, has been under intense pressure at Stamford Bridge due to the club’s recent poor performances.

“Arsene Wenger would be great at Chelsea, I think. He’d be great anywhere, he’s a fantastic manager,” Seaman said on talkSPORT.

“Arsene always said he wouldn’t come back to the Premier League because of his love for Arsenal that he wouldn’t feel right competing against Arsenal.

“But obviously time’s a healer and he could think. I want to go back there and prove a few people wrong.”
