Mohamed Salah on trolling Man Utd on social media after their Champions League exit

Mohamed Salah could hardly have made a better start to his Liverpool career.

Since his club-record £37 million move from Roma in the summer, the Egyptian has scored a remarkable 36 goals in 40 appearances, while his 28 strikes in the Premier League has put him four clear of Harry Kane in the goalscoring charts.

His incredible performances have even seen him compared to five-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi this week.

While he’s not quite at that standard just yet, Jurgen Klopp believes he’s definitely “on his way” to being talked about as a potential Ballon d’Or winner himself.

But it’s not just his performances on the pitch that have pleased Liverpool fans.

Last week, Salah played a blinder off the pitch.

Just days after Liverpool’s bitter loss to Manchester United in the league, they sat back and watched Jose Mourinho’s side crash out of the Champions League at the hands of Sevilla.


Salah himself had been subject to plenty of mocking after their league loss, with even Ashley Young suggesting that he had ‘pocketed’ the winger at Old Trafford during United’s 2-1 victory.

But after the Red Devils crashed out of the Champions League, it was time for Salah to get his own back.

Many fans believed he indirectly replied to Young with an Instagram of his own before he tweeted “The UCL draw can't come soon enough” immediately after the final whistle of United’s 2-1 defeat to Sevilla.




Salah was actually asked about his top trolling in an interview this week and he explained that he found his actions “funny” as he laughed at United’s expense.

“As for being active on social media, I sometimes go on it and follow things. At the end of the day, social media for me is something you do for fun… I’m not even bothered by it,” Salah said.

“I can go on it for joking around, like the funny thing that happened last week. [I did it] because it was funny but it’s all over now.”

Salah is becoming a Liverpool legend more and more every day.
