Mohamed Salah invites blind Liverpool supporter to Melwood


It was another special European night under the Anfield lights last Tuesday as Liverpool beat Napoli 1-0 to book their place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.

Of course, it was Mohamed Salah who bagged the winner.

The Egyptian struck with 34 minutes on the clock as the Reds just about finished second in Group C.

Jurgen Klopp’s men now take on German giants Bayern Munich in the next round.

It was a night to remember for every Liverpool fan.

But it was an extra special night for a blind supporter called Mike Kearney.

The 26-year-old went viral after a video captured the moment his cousin Stephen Garcia provided him with a visual description of the goal as the pair celebrated from the Kop End:

However, this week has been even crazier for the pair as they were both personally invited down to Melwood by Salah himself.

Liverpool’s official Twitter account uploaded the heart-warming footage via LFCTV which included Jurgen Klopp labelling them as ‘the famous two’ upon their arrival.

Salah was next to greet the pair, gifting them with his shirt which included a message saying “To Michael, your support is an inspiration, Mo Salah.”

Their day got even better as they watched their heroes train ahead of Friday night’s clash with Wolves before meeting the rest of the team.

Liverpool Training Session and Press Conference

Ahead of the session, Divock Origi approached Kearney to sign his shirt to which the avid Liverpool supporter said:

“The best day of the year so far was when you slotted against the Blues mate.”

At the beginning of the footage, Cousin Garcia explained what usually happens during a match for him and Kearney:

“It’s just our routine, it’s what we do.

“I tell him every goal kick, every corner, every throw-in.

“Obviously he knows when we score because he gets a big hug, a big celebration.

“I always tell him who scored and how the play sort of went then we just react and celebrate.
