Liverpool's classy and respectful Mo Salah gesture spotted in Wolves win, fans love it
| Last updated
Mo Salah might not have scored for Liverpool in the comeback win over Wolves but had a big impact in helping Jurgen Klopp's side pick up three points.
The Molineux side took the lead when Hwang Hee-chan slotted home to give the hosts the advantage heading into the break.
But the Reds equalised thanks to Cody Gakpo, before Andy Robertson fired Liverpool ahead with five minutes to go, with Hugo Bueno's own-goal putting the result beyond doubt with a 3-1 victory for the visitors.
Salah notched two assists in the clash, teeing up both Gakpo and Robertson in the encounter and it led to Liverpool giving their talisman their player of the match award.
Liverpool have had a long association with Danish lager producer Carlsberg, with the brand being the club's shirt sponsor for many years in the early 2000s.
Carlsberg now sponsors the club's player of the match award and its logo appears on social media when Liverpool announce their choice of the best player in games.
But the logo was absent for the selection of Salah and for a good and very respectful and classy reason.
Egyptian international Salah is Muslim and in Islam, drinking alcohol is forbidden.
It explains why Liverpool opted to remove the Carlsberg logo from its player of the match award for Salah, and fans have taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to praise the decision.
