Totti: ‘Special rapport with Salah’

Francesco Totti confessed he had a “special rapport” with former Roma teammate Mohamed Salah. “We had a lot of fun together.”

Salah wore the Giallorossi jersey from 2015 to 2017, when earning a €42m plus bonuses move to Liverpool.

“It is genuinely sad when any player leaves the team, because you do get fond of people when you see them every day. That is also the case for Salah, Alisson and any other ex-Giallorossi player,” club legend Totti told beIN Sports.

“I had a special rapport with Momo. Every time we trained or played together, he’d tell me: ‘You are a player of a totally different level.’

“We had a lot of fun together, while he is also an exceptional and genuine person. He gave so much to Roma, but in life you need to make decisions and they are to be respected.”

Salah made 83 competitive appearances for Roma, scoring 34 goals with 24 assists.
