“I wasn’t talking about Manchester United players”

Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah has taken to social media to clear up the confusion caused by his comments after the Reds’ win over Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp’s side claimed an emphatic 4-0 victory over rivals Manchester United at Anfield in the Premier League on Tuesday. Luis Diaz and Sadio Mane each scored a goal for the Reds, while Salah ended their six-game drought with a brace.

Speaking after the win, Salah explained how Liverpool’s midfielders and defenders make life easier for his fellow men. However, many felt that the Egypt international was actually attacking the Red Devils’ midfield and defence.

However, Salah has now revealed he spoke about the Reds’ midfielders and defenders in the post-match interview. The 29-year-old went on to stress that he has the utmost respect for Manchester United. He wrote on Twitter:

“I wanted to say that our midfield and defense make it easy for us. I wasn’t talking about Manchester United players that I respect.”

Salah, who has scored 30 goals and provided 12 assists in 42 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool this season, has strived to be a role model professional on and off the pitch over the years. Although the attacker’s act on social media may seem small, it indicates the attitude he possesses.

What did Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah say after Manchester United win?

Salah’s failure to mention Liverpool by name led to confusion that he was talking about Manchester United in his post-match interview. Here are the Egyptian’s comments that made many believe he was trying Ralf Rangnick and Co:

“They make life easier for us in midfield and in defence. They always try to give us the ball in a one-on-one situation. They make our life a lot easier. We got a clean sheet here, a clean sheet there [at Old Trafford]. We arrive at the match and want to score a goal. Once we get the first we want to get the second, once we get the second we will go for a third. But I think it’s a great performance from us, here and elsewhere. Hopefully we will continue like this.

Having ended his goalscoring drought, Salah will now look to build on his momentum and add more to his tally when the Reds host Everton at Anfield in the Premier League this weekend.
