What Happened Between Carlo Ancelotti And Mohamed Salah After The Final Whistle
There was a brilliant moment between Carlo Ancelotti and Mohamed Salah following the final whistle.
Napoli's manager and Liverpool's 'Egyptian King' embraced at full-time in a beautiful moment.
Ancelotti shook Salah's hand before asking for his shirt, he wonderfully obliged.
Salah whipped off his match shirt and handed it to the legendary Italian boss in a great show of respect.

Salah, naturally, cut a dejected figure following his sides Champions League defeat. Lorenzo Insigne bagged a 90th minute winner to secure all three points for Napoli.
The 2017/18 Premier League Player of the Season is going through a mini goal drought. But despite failing to find the back of the net on a regular basis like last season, Salah remains a hugely popular figure at Anfield.
A young lad by the name of Lewis Dunlop received Salah's shirt in a class gesture.
Wayne Dunlop took his son to Liverpool's match against Southampton, and the eight-year-old held a sign and screamed out to Salah as he approached the crowd, with the Liverpool fan breaking down into tears after the 26-year-old handed him his shirt.
It really is a touching moment. Check it out below:

In fact, the Egyptian international even took to Twitter to reply to Dunlop after being tagged in the video.
An absolute touch of class from Mo.
Well played, sir!
"It was surreal," Dunlop told SPORTbible. "Just such a pure moment that we will talk about for generations [to come]."
Will Salah rediscover his goal-scoring form from last season?
