With 11 minutes remaining to the full-time whistle, the Egyptian was called from the bench to come on for a short cameo before a controversial incident transpired.

Jurgen Klopp appeared to have a heated exchange with Salah before the latter was pulled away by teammate Darwin Nunez.

After the game, Salah refused to comment on the incident and also didn’t put the matter to bed, saying: “If I speak today there will be fire.”

Michail Antonio went on to disclose the reason behind the altercation between the Liverpool duo according to the training ground recollections of West Ham players.

‘Basically – this is not inside information, nobody has told me anything,’ Antonio told the Footballer’s Football Podcast.

‘But what I have heard is what the boys have been talking about on the training ground.

‘As the (Liverpool) players come on, Klopp always gives them a big hug and says “good luck”, but when Mo came on he walked in a different direction and was doing his shinpads and stuff like that. 

‘Klopp has put his hand out to him and his hand was there for a bit and as Mo stopped doing what he was doing, he just slapped his (Klopp’s) hand as a high five.

‘Obviously Klopp didn’t like that and he was like, “do you want to sit back down?”, basically saying, “do you want to go on?”. And nobody has told me what Mo said back.’
