Mohamed Salah had to apologise to the Watford keeper after putting four past him

The Egyptian proved he is an unbelievable footballer and one of the nicest guys in the game

This is pretty embarrassing by any goalkeeper’s standards.

You would never expect the opposition striker to apologise to you after scoring four goals against you.
Well that just proves how much of a nice guy Mohamed Salah really is.

You can’t be angry at that face

Salah put in one of the performances of the season against Watford as he sliced through them again and again to score four goals and provide an assist for his best bud Roberto Firmino.

The pair now have the most productive relationship in the league with Firmino putting three on a plate for his Egyptian team mate and Salah returning the favour four times.

All of Salah’s goals were absolutely brilliant and he even recreated some Lionel Messi magic to leave one Watford defender on his back.

Salah took a four goal lead over Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League golden boot and made it 28 league goals for the season – just three away from the record for a 38 game season with seven games remaining.

And the incredible statistics keep coming as Salah’s 34 goals in all competitions are the most for a Liverpool player in their debut season, one ahead of Fernando Torres.

But he also proved that he really is the nicest man in football.

Having wholly embarrassed the whole Watford back line, Salah felt compelled to apologise to Watford Keeper Orestis Karnezis after the game.

Salah, clutching the match ball, was probably the last person Karnezis wanted to see after the game with flashes of the Egyptian still whirring through his mind.

But when he approached the Liverpool player he was greeted with a huge smile and an apology for scoring four goals against him.

That’s pure class from Salah.
