Mo Salah gets police escort as Liverpool arrive at airport

Mohamed Salah appeared to receive a personal police escort as the Liverpool team arrived at John Lennon Airport.

The Reds are preparing to fly out to Italy ahead of their Champions League semi-final against Roma on Wednesday.

The Liverpool players were greeted by a crowd of fans, who were keen to take pictures with them and get their autographs. Salah was the only Reds player who was apparently walked from the coach to the airport by a police officer.

Liverpool take a 5-2 aggregate advantage with them to Italy, after thumping the Serie A giants in the first leg at Anfield last week.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are the favourites to get the job done in Italy and progress to the final in Kiev, where they will face either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

But the Reds will have to get a result without assistant manager Zeljko Buvac, who sensationally walked out on the club just two days before the second leg on Monday.

Buvac, known as "the brain", has been Klopp’s right-hand man during his rise, having first met the 50-year-old during their playing days at Mainz.

The 56-year-old worked alongside Klopp for the best part of 17 years, as No.2 to the Anfield chief at Mainz, Borussia Dortmund and the Reds.

Liverpool played down Buvac’s sudden departure, saying: "Zeljko is spending some time away from the first-team environment, between now and the end of the season, for personal reasons."
