Mo Salah denies disrespecting Man Utd flops after Liverpool superstar’s post-match interview goes viral

MO SALAH has denied disrespecting Manchester United players after Liverpool’s thumping 4-0 win over the Red Devils.

The Egyptian star was interviewed after his two-goal performance helped Jurgen Klopp’s side to another dominant victory over United.

Having also helped his side to a 5-0 win at Old Trafford earlier in the season, Salah was asked why his side have enjoyed so much joy against the Red Devils.

The 29-year-old replied “they make our life easier”, with fans believing he meant Man United’s players.

But clarifying his comments online, Salah insists that he was talking about his own team’s defenders and midfielders making it easy for the forwards.

He tweeted: “I meant our midfield, and our defence, make it easy for us.

“I was not talking about the Manchester United players whom I respect.”

Salah had told Sky Sports last night: “They make our lives easier, in the midfield and the back.

“They always try to give us the ball in a situation one against one, so they make our lives much easier when we defend well.

“We had a clean sheet here, a clean sheet there. They make our lives easier to score, we just go to the game and we want to score just one goal, once we get the first, want to get the second, once we get the second, want to get the third.


“I think it’s a top performance from us here and away also – we hopefully just carry on like this.”

Liverpool’s win took them two points above title rivals Manchester City at the top of the table – although Pep Guardiola’s side host Brighton in their game in hand tonight.

Salah’s two-goal haul extended his lead at the top of the Prem Golden Boot race, taking his overall tally to 22 this term.

He is five ahead of second-placed Son Heung-min, with the Spurs ace next in action against Brentford on Saturday.
