At the much-anticipated first league match between Liverpool and Manchester City, Vincent Kompany did not go dead with Mohammed Salah. While the Egyptian star was running in the opposing half, the Belgian defender did not fail to tackle it with a lot of support. A gesture that has not been sanctioned by the referee.
What particularly caught the attention of the spectators is Kompany’s reaction after his tackle. While Salah was on the floor as a result of the contact, Vincent Kompany turned to him and gave him a ” Pussy ” that could translate into ” Mauviette ” in French.
Liverpool’s German technician Jurgen Klopp commented on the action after the match: ” I really like Vincent Kompany, but how on earth can we not give him a red card? He is the last defender and failed. If he had touched Mo more, he would be out for the season . “
Kompany does not share the point of view of the German at all: “I think there was a big challenge, was not it? I took the ball, a little bit of the guy, but it was not bad. I did not try to hurt him. That was it or let it go! “
Recall that Mohamed Salah was recently named best Arab player of the year by the Arab edition of Goal . The price of the Arab player of the year returned to the Egyptian for the second year in a row.
The Pharaoh has preceded many talents such as Moroccans Hakim Ziyech and Mehdi Benatia, the Algerian Riyad Mahrez or his compatriot, Mahmoud Trézeguet.
During the year 2018, Mohammed Salah became the first Arab and the first African to accumulate 32 goals or more in a single English championship. The famous Liverpool striker has already been awarded the trophy in question. It was Neil Jones, the Liverpool correspondent for Goal , who gave him the trophy.Publicity
