Former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar has poked fun at Roma for selling Mohamed Salah to Liverpool.

Salah has scored 40 goals in all competitions as he goes from strength to strength for the Reds.

The Egyptian has fired Liverpool into the Champions League semi-finals and is the Premier League's top scorer.

Liverpool face Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League and ex-Reds stopper Bruce Grobbelaar is tipping them to go the whole way.

Quoted by Voce Giallorossa, Grobbelaar believes this is Liverpool's year, and they will win their sixth European crown.

He said: "Liverpool will win, and then the final too."

Liverpool will have to face either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich if they get past Roma.

Grobbelaar helped Liverpool win the European Cup in 1984 with his famous wobbly legs routine putting off the Roma players in the decisive penalty shootout.

He weighed in on Salah, taunting: "Salah? You have to be crazy to sell a player like that, or you need a lot of money."

Last month Roma president James Palotta defended the club's decision to sell Salah.

Palotta told Tuttomercatoweb: "Salah is destroying the Premier League, he said he wanted to leave and there was not much left of his contract, so we had no choice."
