Mohamed Salah throws tantrum as he throws tape on pitch and ignores Jurgen Klopp when being substituted

Mohamed Salah was visibly furious with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp after being taken off against Chelsea in the 1-1 draw.

The Reds forward dazzled in the first half at Stamford Bridge, where he provided the assist for Luis Diaz’s opener with a sumptuous pass.

He then thought he had doubled the visitors’ lead with a deft chip, but was ultimately adjudged to be offside by VAR.

Back at his former stomping ground, Salah struggled in the second half as the Merseyside outfit looked to regain their lead after Axel Disasi’s equaliser.

But the 31-year-old was withdrawn from play in the 76th minute for teenager Ben Doak where he failed to hide his anger.

The Egypt international began to pick away at the tape strapped around his right wrist, before tossing it onto the pitch.

He then ignored Klopp as he made his way to the dugout, with the German also blanking Salah during his tantrum.

Salah’s exit ensured that it is the first time in his Liverpool career that he has not scored in the club’s Premier League opener.

Since joining from Roma in 2017, he had scored in the club’s last six opening matches – banging in eight goals.
