Lip reader discloses what Mo Salah said to Klopp to spark furious touchline spat


Mohamed Salah’s verbal exchange with manager Jurgen Klopp, which led to their heated altercation over the weekend, has been revealed, according to a professional lip reader.

Salah, 31, made headlines when he was engrossed in a very public spat with Klopp on the touchline during the Reds’ 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Saturday.

Liverpool were leading away at the London Stadium when Salah was introduced as a substitute, alongside Darwin Nunez, when the Egyptian international could be seen growing visibly upset with his manager, seemingly over a disagreement about the way Salah shook Klopp’s hand before entering the pitch.

Nunez was forced to step in to simmer down the conflict between the pair before further escalation, though most of the damage had been done. And while Salah denied requests for comments after the patch, insisting that if he spoke “there would be fire”, lip reader John Cassidy has revealed to Sportbible what was said that led to the contretemps.

According to Cassidy, Salah said: “There’s nothing I can do about that, nothing,” in response to the perceived impudent handshake. Cassidy also claims that, though Klopp’s response was obscured, Salah was ostensibly not ready as swiftly as the soon-to-depart Liverpool boss wanted him to be.
