Posted by

Mo Salah scored a brilliant goal against Manchester City that handed Liverpool a huge three points but supporters of the opposition team have now decided that the goal shouldn’t have stood.

Being labelled the ‘new Maradona’, the fact that countless angles show that the Egyptian King didn’t handle the ball doesn’t seem to matter and there is also seemingly no concept of perspective.

In the same way that most people aren’t tall enough to put their hand on the Eiffel Tower, the 30-year-old didn’t use his arm to control the ball – thankfully the club have released a video with every angle of the finish and let’s hope that will be comprehensive enough for some of these Manchester-based conspiracy theorists.
