Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman brands Salah a ‘cheat’
Liverpool were awarded a penalty on the stroke of half-time after referee Michael Oliver adjudged Mamadou Sakho to have fouled Mohamed Salah.
James Milner stepped up and converted from the spot to give the Reds a 1-0 lead at Selhurst Park before Sadio Mane sealed all three points in the dying minutes of the game.
However, the penalty decision sparked some controversy as many, including former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Alan Sugar, who believes that the Egyptian had ‘dived’ to earn his team the penalty.
“Mr Salah you should enter the Olympics dive contest. You cheat!” Sugar posted on Twitter.

You cheat !

Sugar bought the North London club in 1991 and stayed for 16 more years until he sold all of his shares to ENIC.
According to The Sun, the 71-year-old was ranked 95th richest person in the UK in 2016 with a net worth of £1.15billion.
Liverpool are now on top of the Premier League table with six points adding to that they are the only to have yet conceded a goal in the competition. They will face Brighton in their next game on Saturday, August 25.
