Mohamed Salah received a mystery gift from Liverpool fan after Red Star win

Liverpool v FK Crvena Zvezda - UEFA Champions League Group C

Mohamed Salah didn’t just break a Liverpool record on Wednesday night, he smashed it.

The Egyptian - who scored a brace during the 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade - became the fastest player to score 50 goals for the Reds, beating the previous record set by Albert Stubbins back in the late 1940s by twelve games.

Is the Salah who scored 44 goals last season finally back?

Many fans and pundits were questioning Salah earlier this season after his slow start to the campaign.

But with three goals in his last two matches, Salah has certainly silenced a few critics.

One man that didn’t have any doubts about his ability during his barren run was his manager Jurgen Klopp.

“The first goal he scored was genius little link-up play from Shaq, I don’t know how he did that!" Klopp said of the Egyptian. "And that’s it. It’s good that we can maybe stop talking about [Salah’s form). 

"I was not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it then it’s like something obviously is wrong, or people are not happy."

While it was a record-breaking night for Salah, he was also involved in an odd exchange with a Liverpool fan at full-time.

The Liverpool fan held a sign that read: "I've come from Egypt for you, Salah.”

And despite being substituted in the second-half, Salah went over to the fan and gave her his shirt.

But Salah also received something in return.

He looked confused at the gift - but what was it?

Well, according to the Daily Mail, it was a £42 box of Thornton chocolates.

How sweet.

Maybe it was a present for becoming the fastest Liverpool player to reach 50 goals.

Upon breaking the record, Salah admitted that he was “proud” of his achievements but insisted he was just glad the team earned all three points.

"That's great. I'm happy to score my 50th goal for Liverpool. I'm very proud about that," Salah said.

"It was an important game. We knew before the game that it was going to be tough. The most important thing for us is the three points - we are doing well now."
