How Salah Found Out City Were Winning League

In what was a rollercoaster day of football, Mohamed Salah sprinted to the corner flag after scoring what he believed was the Premier League title-winning goal for Liverpool. His face quickly changed, however. Here is how he found out about what was happening at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.

In Liverpool's clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday, the Egyptian was introduced as a second-half substitute with the score at 1-1, with the Reds, at that moment, needing a single goal to be crowned champions of England. 

At the Etihad, City had been losing 1-0 until Aston Villa doubled their lead through ex-Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho, with the message passed around quickly at an atmospheric Anfield and reaching Jurgen Klopp's players. 

The Reds increased the pressure on Wolves and it was Salah who eventually put Liverpool ahead, but his goal, which came in the 84th minute, arrived just minutes after Pep Guardiola's Citizens had completed a stunning comeback to take a 3-2 lead over Villa

Liverpool Announce New Signing

Salah, however, appeared to be unaware of this until late into his celebrations when a Liverpool supporter signalled to the winger that City had gone ahead at the Etihad, communication that left the 29-year-old visibly dejected. 

Despite a disappointing end to the campaign, the African superstar's efforts were rewarded with the 2021/22 Golden Boot – shared with Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min – and Playmaker of the Season accolades. 

Here are some pictures of how City celebrated their title win on Sunday:
