Liverpool fans across the globe were left with hanging jaws after Arsenal’s Twitter account dubbed Mohamed Elneny ‘The Egyptian King’ in a tweet.
The admin were commemorating the impact of the Egypt international in the side’s 3-1 victory over Olympiacos in the Europa League, in which the midfielder scored the final goal of the game to seal the tie.
It’s a pretty ridiculous claim to make after a goal in the lesser European competition, as some Reds have chosen to remind their Arsenal counterparts.
As far as the Premier League goes, however, there can only be one Egyptian King; based on the star forward’s ludicrously high threshold of performances since his arrival in 2017, the obvious answer is of course Mo Salah.
Whoever was running the London side’s Twitter account at the time of the Europa League clash may want to take a bit of a break from making big claims for the time being.
