Mo Salah’s private message to Liverpool teammate after Arsenal result speaks volumes

Mohamed Salah sent a message to one of his Liverpool teammates after the club’s Arsenal result.

Liverpool fell to a 3-1 defeat against Arsenal on Sunday, a result that has blown the title race wide open.

The Reds’ talisman, Salah, was unable to feature in the top-of-the-table encounter, having sustained a hamstring injury while on international duty with Egypt.

However, the 31-year-old has continued to have an influence on his side behind the scenes.

Salah, who is part of the Reds’ internal leadership group, has spoken previously about his desire to set an example for his teammates. And in an interview with the official Liverpool matchday programme, 20-year-old midfielder Harvey Elliott explained just how important Salah’s support has been during his time on Merseyside.


“I think to the very day I retire I’ll always be learning different things from different players and Mo is a great example of that,” he said.

“Especially because we kind of played the same position when I first joined the club. I signed as a right winger, [but] knowing that it would take a miracle to take his spot!


“I had to adapt my game but there were things I could take from that position into the midfield where I play now: goalscoring threat, creativity and stuff like that.

“With Mo, he’s always trying not only to push myself but the other youngsters as well and, in all fairness, he doesn’t really need to do it.

“He’s an icon on and off the pitch and it would be easy to just focus on himself and keep making sure he’s breaking records and so on, but he takes time out of his day to check in on us, to make sure we know that if we need anything, he’s always there to give us pointers.”

Elliott also revealed a message he received from Salah in the wake of Liverpool’s defeat to Arsenal.

He said: “Although he was at the AFCON with Egypt, he messaged me after the Arsenal game in the last round of the FA Cup saying, ‘How did you find it?’ and so on. They are the things he doesn’t have to do but he’s just a great human being and always wants the best for everyone.

“To have him in the team and to see what he’s accomplished is just unbelievable and it’s a pleasure to share the pitch with him.”
