Egyptian footballers, former teammates react to Salah’s move to Liverpool
Mohamed Salah’s move to Liverpool triggered a wave of reactions across social media from a number of Egyptian players and former teammates.
After around a month of negotiations with the Giallorossi, the Reds announced on Thursday signing the 25-year-old Egypt international winger for €42 million ($46.8 million), which makes him Liverpool’s most expensive signing.
Here are some of the reactions from the football world:
