Liverpool's Mohamed Salah refusing MOTM from James Milner in 2018 was a class moment

Salah Milner MOTM

Liverpool’s relentless charge towards an unprecedented quadruple hangs in the balance with only two Premier League games to go.

The Reds are three points off the pace with a ruthless Manchester City looking increasingly unlikely to slip up in the final weeks.

Of course, Liverpool could still end the season with three shiny pieces of silverware to add to their glittering collection.

After the shambles of last season, you can only think that a Liverpool fan would’ve snapped your arm off if you’ve offered them a treble come the end of 2021/22.

So, while the Premier League title may be a bridge too far at this point, there is still plenty to look forward to and plenty to love about this Liverpool team.

The fact that they have managed to go so deep into a season with all four trophies still on the table is an incredible achievement in itself and stands as a testament to the spirit Jurgen Klopp has instilled in his men.

That spirit has been a key part of Liverpool’s success under the German, and it was something that was clear to see in the early seasons of his tenure.

It’s a mantra that each and every member of the squad needs to buy into if they are to have any hope of succeeding at Anfield and one that has served the squad well over the last few seasons.

Never was that camaraderie better on show than in a post-match interview during the 2018/19 season with James Milner and Mohamed Salah.

Having just waltzed his way to an electric hat-trick against Bournemouth, Salah was unsurprisingly named man of the match while Milner was tasked with presenting him the trophy.

However, with Milner having also made his 500th Premier League appearance on the day, Salah refused to accept the award, instead handing it straight back to Liverpool’s vice-captain.

You can see the wholesome moment in the clip below:

Brilliant stuff.

“I have to congratulate him for his amazing career. I hope I have more games like this in my career. But I will not take it [the award from Milner],” Salah explained.

Liverpool will be hoping for a lot more trophy shenanigans by the time this season comes to a close.
