Mo Salah likes first tweet in six years after huge VAR error, he’s made his feelings clear
| Last updated
Mohamed Salah liked his first tweet in nearly six years after Tottenham's controversial win over Liverpool on Saturday.
However, a heartbreaking stoppage time own-goal from Joel Matip was a more fitting ending to Liverpool's hugely unlucky afternoon.
What made the defeat even more painful was the fact that Luis Diaz's first-half goal, which was chalked off for offside, should have actually stood.
And Salah has made his feelings clear on the matter, after he liked a tweet of BeIN Sports pundits Andy Gray and Richard Keys analysing the decision, which Gray branded "nonsense".

Salah has subsequently unliked the tweet, but the Egyptian is right to feel aggrieved after VAR expert Dale Johnson explained the farcical communication between VAR and Simon Hooper which led to the disallowing of the goal.
Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, described Liverpool's defeat as "the most unfair circumstances and crazy decisions" he's ever seen.
The PGMOL released a public statement on Sunday admitting that their decision was incorrect and that the goal should have stood.
It read: "PGMOL acknowledge a significant human error occurred during the first half of Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool," they said in a statement.
"The goal by Luis Diaz was disallowed for offside by the on-field team of match officials. This was a clear and obvious factual error and should have resulted in the goal being awarded through VAR intervention, however, the VAR failed to intervene.
"PGMOL will conduct a full review into the circumstances which led to the error.
"PGMOL will immediately be contacting Liverpool at the conclusion of the fixture to acknowledge the error."
