Football fans believe Mohamed Salah knew exactly what he was doing when he sent a photo of himself with the Champions League trophy in the background last night.
Salah posted the picture on Instagram minutes after Manchester United lost to Sevilla in the Champions League. It seemed to be a direct response to Ashley Young suggesting he pocketed Salah in Man United’s recent win over Liverpool.
The Egyptian provided further reason to believe he was mocking the Red Devils when he tweeted: “The UCL draw can't come soon enough 😁”.
Salah was already a hero among Liverpool supporters before last night. If he keeps trolling Man United, it won’t be long before he reaches legendary status.
But it wasn’t just the Liverpool attacker who appeared to revel in Man United’s misery last night.
A Snapchat video did the rounds on social media, with Twitter accounts claiming it was sent from Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.
In the video, you can hear a man laughing after Wissam Ben Yedder had given Sevilla the lead.
It wasn't Tiemoue Bakayoko - it was his brother
However, it has since emerged that the video was not sent by Tiemoue Bakayoko but his brother, who cleared up the confusion on Snapchat.
Tiemoue Bakayoko sent an angry tweet
Clearly, it’s fake news. And Bakayoko isn’t happy that his name was incorrectly used in order to get a few retweets.
The 23-year-old posted an angry tweet from his verified Twitter account.
“Check your sources in the future instead of creating attention for no reason. It wasn’t my snap😒,” Bakayoko wrote.
It’s rather sad that the midfielder had to come out and clear his name.
Chelsea can join Sevilla in quarter-final draw
Ben Yedder went on to score again as Sevilla recorded a memorable 2-1 victory at Old Trafford.
It’s the first time in 60 years that the La Liga outfit have reached the quarter-final of the Champions League and they are fully deserving of their place in Friday’s draw.
Bakayoko would love to join Sevilla in the draw, with Chelsea taking on Barcelona in this evening’s return fixture at the Camp Nou.
The 1-1 draw in last month’s first leg in west London leaves Chelsea with an uphill battle, though. Antonio Conte’s side must score if they are to have any chance of progressing.
