Mohamed Salah's Agent Tweets After Jurgen Klopp Subs Him In 62nd Minute Vs Chelsea
Mohamed Salah's agent has worried Liverpool fans with his tweet after the winger was substituted in the 62nd minute vs Chelsea.
The Reds slipped to a 1-0 home defeat thanks to Mason Mount's first half effort and they never looked threatening going forward.
Part of that was down to Salah's performance and in a shock move, Jurgen Klopp opted to bring the Egyptian international off for Diogo Jota.
Rammy Abbas Issa represents Salah and he tweeted a full stop at the exact same time Salah left the pitch.

Salah not happy at being taken off. Shaking his head as walked to bench. But 5 mins ago Klopp was screaming at him to track back & help out defensively, he was a long way off. Bit of a half hearted jog. Klopp turned to Ljinders almost straight away & they discussed replacing him- Matt Critchley (@MattCritchley1) March 4, 2021
Salah looked frustrated as he left the pitch and cameras caught his glum expression throughout the game.
Fans have reacted to Issa's tweet and they're wondering if it could be hinting at a Liverpool departure for Salah.
Re that tweet by Salah's agent, where is he going to go? The Spanish big two have no money, and would probably look to go younger. Liverpool are not going to accept less. He surely has to just wait out his contract and go on a Bosman if he does?

Salah is still the Premier League's top scorer with 17 goals and he regularly completes a full 90 minutes.
Klopp spoke post-match and stated Salah's intensity was below his usual standards.
He explained per Paul Gorst: "He looked disappointed that is not a problem. Reason for it, I could have changed others, but he looked like he felt the intensity and I didn't want to risk it. I've known him a long time and he usually looks fresh. It was a sign not to risk him."
