Mohamed Salah's prolific season at Liverpool surprises AS Roma President

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah's prolific season since leaving AS Roma has come as a surprise to the Italian Serie A club's President James Pallotta.

Salah, who returned to the Premier League last year, has scored 41 goals in all competitions for Liverpool this season and is looking to add to his tally against his former side in the first leg of the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday.

In an interview with ESPN, Pallotta said Salah's exceptional numbers were a revelation.

Liverpool reportedly paid 34 million euros (29.77 million pounds) to sign Salah, who returned to England two and a half years after leaving Chelsea following an unproductive 12-month spell in London.

Pallotta said the deal for the Egypt international, who was named Player of the Year by England's Professional Footballers' Association, was a bargain for Liverpool.
