Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to reveal their delight after Mohamed Salah exited the Africa Cup of Nations due to a shock 1-0 defeat against South Africa.
Salah perhaps wasn’t at 100% after suffering a cold earlier in the week, and that showed as he delivered a largely ineffective performance – none of his four shots were on target and he rarely troubled the opposition seriously.
“It reminds me of a bus seat!” – Watch a damning verdict on Chelsea’s new kit in the video below…
Despite his and his country’s heartbreak at the shock result, the loss does mean that Salah will now be able to embark on his holidays sooner than expected, and it is now understood that the former Roma man will be available to start the Premier League season.
If Egypt had gone further, Salah would’ve had to take his holidays later and would have needed to get up to speed with the other lads who have had a full pre-season under their belts, so Egypt’s exit is at least good news in that respect.
The Liverpool fans on Twitter clearly seem happy about the news too…
Good news for #LFC though,be back sooner ?

To be sincere inside my mind, I wanted Egypt to loss that game so that Salah can go have some nice rest cause EPL is near…
