Theory on Mo Salah’s ‘anti-celebration’ shared by pundit – but we don’t buy it

We think the questions about Mo Salah celebrating goals are largely irrelevant, providing he’s scoring them.

And with four in his past two matches, combined with exhilarating performances to boot, there is absolutely nothing for fans to worry about.

But it was noticeable again last night that he looked pretty angry after his effort v Napoli – as he did throughout his hat-trick v Bournemouth at the weekend.

Former Liverpool player Luis Garcia reckons it’s because Salah is finding this campaign more difficult.

“Well, we still don’t know,” Garcia told BT Sport, while in the studio as a pundit last night.

“I think he’s not feeling the same as he did last year. Last year everything was coming easy and this year he’s struggling in a few of the games.

“[He’s] having chances and not scoring. [He’s] probably trying to prove himself and, well, today once again he done it.”

We disagree. Salah’s celebrations smack to us of, ‘As if you doubted me…’ – aimed at the media who suggested he was a one-season wonder following a fairly quiet start to the season.

He’s not unhappy. He’s just incredibly brilliant – and knows it.

It’s as if to say, ‘I told you so!’
