Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita didn’t bother to acknowledge the Reds’ travelling supporters after full-time against Brighton on Saturday, according to GOAL.
Jurgen Klopp made an example of praising the Anfield faithful at the weekend, following his side’s embarrassing 3-0 defeat to the Seagulls.
The away end at the Amex Stadium was half-empty by the time the final whistle rang, having witnessed a dreadful performance.
Harvey Elliott and Andy Robertson led the Liverpool players towards the travelling fans, apologetically acknowledging their continued support.
However, as per GOAL, both Salah and Keita didn’t bother to partake in this.
Instead, they were spotted heading straight down the tunnel as soon as the full-time whistle blew.
Salah and Keita failed to acknowledge the fans at full-time
After an absolutely dire display, the entire Liverpool squad should have made their way to show their thanks to the fans who had made the long journey down to the south coast.
Alike the rest of the team, besides Alisson Becker and Ibrahima Konate, neither player showered themselves in glory with their performance.
Therefore, to then have the nerve to not even acknowledge the Liverpool fans after the match, this was very poor behaviour demonstrated by Salah and Keita.
It’s all well and good celebrating with the fanbase when everything is going well, but it is equally important – if not more important – to show solidarity when things aren’t going so well.
This was a disappointing display from the Reds duo, especially from Salah. The £34m man is a hero at Anfield, so he should look to make amends against Wolves tomorrow night, with a great performance topped off by praise for the fans at the end of the game.
