Egyptian star Mohamed Salah has expressed his delight at helping Liverpool reach the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

The Reds won 2-1 at Manchester City on Wednesday night to take the all-English quarterfinal tie 5-1 on aggregate.

Salah and Roberto Firmino were on the score sheet for the visitors at the Etihad Stadium, with the Egyptian’s goal early in the second half proving key in puncturing City’s resolve to make a comeback.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Salah reflected: “I think the [his] goal was at a good time for us because they were pressing very high and had many chances, so in the beginning we struggled a little bit because they scored in the first two minutes.

“After that we came back, we played hard and we got the result - that's the most important thing."

Salah switched from playing on the right of Liverpool’s attack to a more central role in the second half, but he insists that his exact position isn’t really relevant.

“I've changed my position many times, but in the end we play as a team. We play as 11 players and everyone gives 100 per cent, so we are happy about the result.

“I've said many times that I play for the team and I try to score each game to try to help the team to win the games. That's the most important thing for me."
