CAIRO – 15 April 2019: Liverpool Egyptian winger, Mohamed Salah, scored an extraordinary strike on Sunday against Chelsea to secure his team’s victory and keep their chances alive to win the league.
Salah received the ball 25 yards out and shot the ball that Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga, failed to stop.
Salah celebrated the goal by adopting a yoga-style pose before being mobbed by his teammates.
“I am a yoga man! I do yoga and it just came into my mind.” Salah said after the game.
Salah’s extraordinary goal came 142 seconds after his teammate, Sadio Mane’s goal that opened the score in the game.
Salah added “Normally I shoot with the inside of my foot. But this one I decided, because it was far, to hit it with power. I was lucky the ball hit the net like that."
Asked about the critics he receives for not scoring the same amount of goals like last season, he said “I think you know it’s different with the other teams now. The opponent, it’s not that they know how to play, but they play with two or three players. Mane has a very good season, Roberto Firmino has a very good season, because also the attention means they have freedom.”
Liverpool are leading the League title with 85 points, two points ahead of the defending champions, Manchester City, who still have a postponed game.
