Liverpool striker Mo Salah might not have won as many awards and plaudits as he did last year, but he shared the Premier League golden boot with two other African players this season.
However, one thing that stands out for the Egyptian is the chance to be crowned, with his team Liverpool, the kings in Europe as they face Tottenham Hotspurs in the final of the Champions League on June 1.
Salah would be praying for a lot of things to go his and his team’s way during the final in Madrid, Spain, but one thing he has asked for is specifically from the Reds’ fans.
In his tweet, Salah first of all thanked everyone for their help during the Premier League season, but cautioned too that it wasn’t over yet.
“It feels bittersweet now but the season isn’t over. I want to say thank you to my teammates, coaches, and to the fans,” tweeted Salah.
Meanwhile, he concluded his tweet by asking the Liverpool fans: “And fans, please bring Anfield to Madrid.”
The message is important since Liverpool fans have waited a long time for such an opportunity to come, and it was them who pushed the Jurgen Klopp-managed side to upset Barcelona in the semis.
Liverpool pulled off an Anfield miracle as they beat the La Liga giants 4-0 in the second leg, despite being 3-0 down after the first leg which was played at Camp Nou.
Will the fans be able to fulfill Salah’s wishes? Will the Egyptian star bring home the much-awaited Champions League glory? All the answers will come out on June 1 in the marquee final.
