Mo Salah Refuses Man Of The Match Award, Gives It To James Milner

Mohamed Salah refused to take the Man of the Match award given to him for his sensational match-winning performance against Bournemouth.

The Egyptian King bagged a brilliant hat-trick at the Vitality Stadium to take Liverpool to the top of the table for at least a few hours before Manchester City play away at Chelsea but although he was voted the Man of the Match, Salah wouldn't take it off James Milner.

Instead, in his post-match interview with Sky Sports after the 4-0 win, he told his captain to keep the award to mark his 500th Premier League appearance.


An absolute class act and a wonderful tribute from Salah to his teammate. Fans on Twitter loved his selfless gesture:


Salah's hat-trick was his second for Liverpool and now means he is on 42 Premier League goals for the club. And in giving the spotlight to Milner after the match, he's proved he's a class act on and off the pitch.

Top man, Mo.
