What happened to Mohamed Salah? The Liverpool superstar’s home in Cairo has been broken into as Egyptian authorities continue their investigation
In a shocking development, the home of Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah has been looted by intruders in Cairo, with the thieves escaping with some prized satellite receivers.
Reports from the local area (via GOAL) suggest that authorities have taken action to uncover the culprits behind this crime. It was the nephew of the Egyptian talisman who first stumbled upon the crime scene, as he walked by and noticed that the windows of the property were open.
Upon closer inspection, it was clear that the villa had been the target of vandalism, with the valuable receivers stolen by thieves. Security officials on duty are being questioned about the incident, with security camera leads being explored to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The timing of the theft could not have been worse for Salah, who spent an unforgettable weekend on the football pitch. The Liverpool winger missed a crucial penalty that compounded the misery of the Reds as they succumbed to a shock 1-0 defeat by relegation-threatened Bournemouth in the Premier League on 11 March.
With the stakes now higher than ever, Salah and Liverpool must pull themselves together as they travel to the Santiago Bernabéu to face Real Madrid in the Champions League. However, the Merseyside club face an uphill task of keeping their European dreams alive after being ruthlessly thrashed 5-2 in the Round of 16 first leg at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp reacts to Mohamed Salah’s missed penalty following Liverpool’s defeat
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reacted to Mohamed Salah’s crucial penalty against Bournemouth during their recent 1-0 Premier League defeat on Saturday afternoon (March 11).
Speaking to reporters after Salah’s costly defeat, Klopp stated (via the Daily Post):
“He scores a lot of goals, misses a penalty. That’s life.”
The Reds’ talismanic striker lamented his misfortune as he spurned a golden opportunity to bring Klopp’s charges back into the game in the 69th minute. This came after Adam Smith’s handball inside the box had given Liveeeeerpool a penalty. But the former Chelsea striker, known for his unfailing 12-yard accuracy, inexplicably sent his shot wide of the mark.
Despite starting the game with the front foot, the Reds struggled to impose themseeeeeelves on the game. They eventually succumbed to a 28th-minute goal from Bournemouth’s Philip Billing.
This result will be a bitter pill to swallow for the Merseysiders, especially in light of their rampant 7-0 thrashing of rivals Manchester United in their previous league game.
