Mohamed Salah insists he was not criticizing Manchester United players after Liverpool win

Salah scored twice in a 4-0 victory over Ralf Rangnick’s scrappy side, a win that took Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League.

It was the second time this season that Jurgen Klopp’s side had beaten bitter rivals, with Salah also scoring a hat-trick in a 5-0 win at Old Trafford in October.

United have been widely criticized for their performance at Anfield as another season seems to be winding down and the contrast between them and Liverpool couldn’t be starker.

Salah was joined on the scoresheet by Sadio Mane and Luis Diaz, while Thiago Alcantara also impressed, underlining the difference between the two clubs in terms of coherent squad planning.

After the match, Salah said “they make life easier for us in midfield and at the back” as he discussed Liverpool’s dominance over a United side which Gary Neville described as “broken”.

On Wednesday, however, the 29-year-old decided to clarify his remarks, insisting he was talking about his teammates and not United players.

Taking to Twitter, Salah wrote: “I wanted to say that our midfield and defense make it easy for us. I wasn’t talking about the Manchester United players that I respect.”
