Jurgen Klopp and Mo Salah have a tradition of hugging in the tunnel before matches


Mohamed Salah and Jurgen Klopp have a great relationship both on and off the field.

The German manager brought Salah to Liverpool in the summer of 2017 and the two hit it off right away.

Salah has been incredibly successful during his time at the club, scoring 75 goals in 111 games and winning numerous awards.

A big part of his success can be attributed to his relationship with his manager.

“It’s very good,” Salah said last year when describing his relationship with his manager, per the Daily Express. “He’s talking to me like a friend.

“He knows the way to treat me in a good way I mean not just on the field but also on the outside.

“He’s very good, I can say he’s a good friend of mine.

“Of course he’s the boss but also a good friend from day one honestly the way we talk to each other is different.

“The way he treats me is different in what I saw before.

“He’s always strong in his way because in the end he’s a boss [to] myself and other players.”

And their relationship is perfectly summed up by their pre-match ritual.

A Liverpool fan has noticed that in the tunnel, Salah always walks to the back of the line and is greeted by his manager.

The two then embrace, before walking out on to the pitch.

That is adorable. Salah simply cannot walk out on to the pitch without a hug from his manager.

It must put Salah at ease and allows him to play his best.

It's clearly working, too, with Salah now one of the best players in the world and one of the leading contenders to win the Ballon d'Or.

Back in April, reports emerged that the two had fallen out and that Klopp wanted to sell Salah.

Those claims look even more ridiculous on the back of this video.
