- Mo’ Sallah narrowly misses a 3 match ban over an alleged altercation.
- The Egyptian would now lace his boots to battle the Blues this weekend.
Reports suggest that Mohammed Salah is set to avoid punishment for involvement in an altercation in Liverpool’s game against Stoke City last Saturday. Salah was caught to film appearing to flick his arm at Stoke defender Bruno Martis Indi, although the incident wasn’t caught by the referee on the day, Andre Marriner.
The game subsequently ended in a goalless draw that saw Liverpool’s chances of making it to next season’s UCL decline as the gap between them and 4th and 5th place was closed further ahead of a trip to Stamford Bridge.
However, Salah’s outburst was examined by a three-man panel of ex-referees, who made a decision that the action was not violent, thus likely sparing him a three-match ban.
