"Clueless": Liverpool fans slam Garth Crooks for Salah remarks

Liverpool just about edged past West Ham United this weekend. The Reds put in yet another gritty performance to beat an in form David Moyes side. Despite some strong performances from the Reds, the media has focused on criticising one individual in particular. Liverpool fans have slammed Garth Crooks for his remarks on Mo Salah.

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham

We were nervy heading into the weekend tie with West Ham. The Hammers arrived in good form having pulled out impressive results against Manchester City, Spurs and Leicester City.

The visitors took the lead early on, Pablo Fornals slotting past Alisson after 10 minutes – a poor Joe Gomez header providing the opportunity.

Mo Salah won and converted a penalty shortly before halftime to level the scores.

Jürgen Klopp had to rely on his super subs to win the game, Xherdan Shaqiri and Diogo Jota coming off the bench and combining for a sumptuous winner.

Garth Crooks on Mo Salah

A number of pundits have criticised the Egyptian King for the way he went down for the penalty incident.

If he doesn’t go down then he doesn’t get his penalty, one he was thoroughly entitled to having been kicked by Arthur Masuaku.

This week Garth Crooks slammed Mo Salah whilst writing about why Jordan Henderson made the BBC Team of the Week, writing:

“That was no foul…I wonder if Henderson might have a gentle word with Salah to remind him that he has placed himself among the Liverpool greats – and not to spoil it with cheap nonsense like diving.”

One Twitter user implied the pundit is a clown, comparing two passages of his roundup.

Others noticed the same juxtaposition.

Why use Henderson’s passage to criticise Salah?

Some belive it to be a witch hunt.

Others believe it’s become an absolute joke.
