Liverpool employee posts class video of what Mo Salah did at half-time v Brighton

After Mohamed Salah’s incredible 44 goals during his debut season at Liverpool, this second season was always going to be difficult for the Egyptian.

How does PFA Player of the Year even attempt to follow that up?

Well, he hasn’t made a bad start during the 2018/19 season, scoring twice in Liverpool’s first three matches.

That’s on the pitch.

Off the pitch, Salah was involved in a controversial incident following Liverpool’s opening weekend victory against West Ham.

Whilst sat in traffic in his vehicle leaving the stadium, Salah appeared to ignore fans – including several children – as they asked for autographs and selfies.

Instead, Salah appeared to be using his mobile phone – something that was reported to Merseyside Police.

Some fans slammed Salah for blatantly ignoring young fans despite being at the wheel of the car at the time.

However, that would be hugely unfair to the former Roma star.

Salah is often seen signing autographs and posing for pictures for young fans when the opportunity arises.

And that could be seen during Liverpool’s clash with Brighton on Saturday evening.

Salah scored the only goal of the match as the Reds recorded a narrow 1-0 victory against the Seagulls.

At half-time, Salah walked off the pitch and gave his Liverpool shirt to a young fan who was holding a sign asking for the superstar’s jersey.

The video was posted by Liverpool’s Head of Club and Supporter Liaison, Tony Barratt, who wrote: “Only just picked up on this from yesterday. No fanfare, just a nice touch for the right reasons and made a kid’s day.”

But there’s more to the story.

The father of the lucky boy got in touch with Barrett and explained that Salah had previously promised his shirt to him.

“The reason he give it my lad was he promised him his shirt at the last game of last season! And @MoSalah didn’t forget!”

Now that’s class.

That just shows Salah’s true character and fans were far too quick to criticise him for that incident whilst he was driving.
