Mohamed Salah jokingly explains why he 'never smiles' during his celebrations

Liverpool v A.S. Roma - UEFA Champions League Semi Final Leg One

Mohamed Salah has been a pretty decent signing for Liverpool, hasn’t he?

The Egyptian has scored 44 goals in all competitions this season, making a mockery of his £37 million transfer fee.

He’s helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to a top-four finish and into the Champions League final with his incredible performances.

Salah has become so prolific that when he went three games without scoring before his goal on the final day of the season against Brighton, it was dubbed a goal drought.

But it was no surprise to see him scoring once again last time out, a strike that broke the Premier League record of most goals in a 38-game campaign.

And after finding the net against Brighton, you could clearly see how much it meant to him.

But that sort of emotion isn’t always seen after his goals.


In fact, Salah often just stands still with his arms outstretched without any facial expression whatsoever.

And in a lovely one-to-one interview with Dejan Lovren, Salah brilliant explained why.

“Why do you always celebrate the same, can I ask you?” Lovren asked.


“Not the same way,” Salah protested. “Show me. I have more celebrations, more than Bobby [Firmino].”

“Yes I know, but every celebration you never smile,” Lovren stated. Because you’re not happy to score a hat-trick or what?”

“It just became something normal,” Salah answered.


But Salah wasn’t being deadly serious and added: “This is too arrogant. No, no.”

“No, I’m always happy when I score, to be honest.”

Liverpool fans will just be hoping they see Salah's smileless celebrations a couple more times in the Champions League final on Saturday...
