Milner Posts Hilarious Response To Salah Winning The FIFA Puskás Award

Mohamed Salah was one of the lucky winners at the Best FIFA Football Awards 2018 on Monday when he bagged himself the FIFA Puskás Award. There's no doubt that Liverpool fans are happy for him, but it also presented the perfect opportunity to take a cheeky swipe at the 26-year-old Egyptian forward.

He went on Twitter to congratulate his teammate for his "seventh best goal from last season winning goal of the year."

What a champion Milner is.

Salah's strike against Everton has been heavily criticised by many people online, especially when fans have a say in the selection of the Puskás Award recipient.

There are some football fans that believe Gareth Bale's sublime bicycle kick against Liverpool in the Champions League final should have been crowned the undisputed winner.

Meanwhile, others would point to Cristiano Ronaldo, who was absent from the ceremony, and his stunning overhead kick for Real Madrid against Juventus in Europe's elite competition as the one and only winner.

Mo walked away with the Puskás Award, but he missed out on the Best FIFA Men's Player to Madrid's Luka Modrić.

Do you think Salah should have won the Puskás?
