Salah: Give Mil­ner award

Sunday Express - - LETTERS - By Tom Hop­kin­son

MO SALAH walked away with the match ball but not the man-of-the­match award af­ter in­sist­ing James Mil­ner de­served it.

Salah bagged a hat-trick and Steve Cook scored an own goal as Liver­pool thumped Bournemouth 4-0 to move to the top of the ta­ble.

But the Egyp­tian hailed Mil­ner (left) for mak­ing his 500th Pre­mier League ap­pear­ance and forced him to take the ac­claim in­stead. Salah said: “I have to con­grat­u­late him for his amaz­ing ca­reer. I hope I have more games like this in my ca­reer but I will not take the award.”

But Liver­pool man­ager Jur­gen Klopp added: “What Mo did around his two goals in the sec­ond half was just ex­cep­tional.”
