Oxlade-Chamberlain talks about pranking Salah, UCL final
Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain revealed why he pranked Salah on social media and what he believes are the reasons behind his side’s success this season.
Chamberlain spent over a year on the sidelines after he damaged his cruciate and medial ligaments, plus the tendons to his hamstring against Roma last season.
He made his official comeback during the Reds’ 5-0 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League.
A couple of days ago, a video emerged on the 25-year-old’s Instagram page where he jokes about Egypt’s Mohamed Salah who was sleeping on the airplane floor.
Chamberlain talked to liverpoolfc.com about the prank and revealed why he did it.
“It was like a free ticket for me when he pitched up behind me!,” Oxlade-Chamberlain said.
“It was nice he chose my seat and gave me a little something to do on the two-and-a-half-hour flight!
“I am always one of the ones that is lively in and around the dressing room with the boys. We’ve got a great group of lads but I’m probably just the one who puts it on social media.
“Robbo (Andy Robertson) is probably the one that is the most lively, he’s just not so active on his Instagram!,” the former Arsenal man added.
After just missing out on the league title, Liverpool will be competing in the Champions League final for the second year in a row. Chamberlain believes that this success is due to the chemistry within the group of players.
“We have a great bunch of lads and that’s the sort of spirit that has gotten us through to where we are today.
“The team spirit keeps building and performances have come with that as well, so hopefully there is something special for this group of lads in 10 days time. Hopefully, we can pull something off and make some special memories and history,”
The Reds are currently in a closed camp in Marbella, in preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Tottenham, set to take place on June 1 in the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
