Egypt star winger Mohamed Salah has been selected in UEFA's Europa League team of the week following his stunning performance in the 3-0 win over local rivals AS Roma.

Despite failing to find the net in the Europa League second-leg win, Salah was hailed for his display against Roma, having been denied by the post and the bar in Viola's away victory.

Salah featured in UEFA's weekly list alongside two Fiorentina teammates — defender Jose Basanta and midfielder Matias Fernandez — who contributed to the win that took the Serie A side to the Europa League's quarter finals.

The 22-year-old Salah, on loan from English Premier League leaders Chelsea, has been impressive for Fiorentina so far, having notched six goals and dished out two assists in 10 games.

His goals included a stunning brace against Serie A defending champions Juventus in Coppa Italia, alongside another goal against Inter Milan in the league.

The Egyptian's superb displays prompted speculation regarding his future at Chelsea when his loan ends. Many have expected the Londoners to sell their prize asset at the end of the season.

Fiorentina now meet Ukraine's Dynamo Kyiv in the Europa League's last-eight following their 4-1 aggregate win over Roma.
