Captain Daniele De Rossi said the draw had pitted together two teams who had made waves in the Champions League.

And that adoration is clearly mutual, with Salah explaining in an interview with CNN on Friday that he "loves" the Liverpool fans for they way they support him. "We had good results in the month so that's the most important thing".

'Of course, I have happy memories.

Liverpool lead fifth-placed Chelsea by 10 points, although the reigning Premier League champions do have a game in hand, in the fight for a place in the top four thanks to a run of just two league defeats in 24 matches.

'We had a good time in the dressing room'.

There appears to be no stopping the Egyptian, who was brought to Anfield in the summer for a fee of £36.9m, with Salah having scored 29 goals and recorded nine assists in the Premier League alone.

Roma have not conceded a goal on their own pitch in Europe this season and Gandini said: "We have the desire to play for our city and for Italian football".

"He is awesome, unbelievable". "I love him. I have a good relationship with him, he's very nice".

"They've played a good season after a hard transfer window past year".

But if Liverpool can overcome Roma, could it win the competition for a sixth time? "I always say that we take it step-by-step but we are in the semifinal, everything can happen".

"I think they will be two hard games, they are a fantastic side".

Salah grabbed six goals during a key run of four games during the month prior to winning his third Player of the Month award. Liverpool play Bournemouth on Saturday April 14.

Despite his goalscoring exploits this term, Salah faces a stiff competition from Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne in the race for the end of the season biggest individual prize.

"People ask me will he leave", he said in his Friday press conference. "Looking forward to seeing you again", read one message on Twitter immediatley after the tie was confirmed.
