Liverpool striker Mo Salah has spoken about the Tweet which was aimed at Harry Kane, following the Tottenham Hotspur striker being awarded the goal against Stoke City.

The goal was originally credited to Christian Eriksen, but Tottenham launched an official bid to the Premier League as Kane pleaded that it should be his goal as it touched his shoulder.

Salah currently has a five-goal advantage over the Tottenham forward in the race for the golden boot. When Kane was officially credited with the goal, Salah took to social media and Tweeted “Wooooooow really ?”

The Egyptian was asked about his Tweet and told the media: “I don’t want to say anything about that!

“In the end they said it’s his (Kane’s) goal so it’s finished for me. Now we still have four games and they (Tottenham) have five games so I have to think about my games and we see.

“Of course (the golden boot) is in my mind. I cannot lie – it is in my mind. But you can see with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me.

“I am also sure that Tottenham’s players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City’s try to help Sergio Aguero. It’s like that, but in the end we play as a team.

“I am happy to have this feeling. You feel they want to support you and want to help you to score goals. That’s a good feeling.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Mo Salah seems to be the only sane person commenting on this story. All the rest are maybe jealous? Either way, many of the other comments are just stupid.

    So, I respect Salah for being, apparently, the only adult in the room. One suspects that he would do the same thing in the same circumstances. That “attitude” is one of the things that a team wants in a striker.

    • Salah comes over as a decent bloke with a sensible head on his talented shoulders. Of course he and his team mates want him to win the golden boot, ditto Harry and his team mates.
      Let’s forget the pettiness and if Harry wins it we’ll celebrate but if Salah wins it good luck to him.

  2. It’s hard to catch up Mo.salah looking at his form and consistency of scoring goal,looking at the Liverpool game shows he’ll outscore the GOLDEN kane for the hattrick of golden boot award. But at the same time you never know when this “hurricane”{harry kane} comes hard and blow away all the chances of his winning the award. So be aware Mo.salad and wait for the Storm.

    • Didn’t H score something like 8 goals in the last 3 games last season to overtake Lukaku?

      I would love for H to win it again, but if Mo Salah wins it, then good for him.

  3. Salah didn’t have to say anything with his original tweet but he did and so began the onslaught. No surprise he doesn’t want to talk about it now. Don’t give a shit about Golden Boots, rather Spurs win the FA Cup and finish in top four. H will learn from this but fellow professional taking the piss like an average fan? How is that professional, it has a nasty side to it. As for Henderson and Vardy… I’m sure there will be an edge in the England camp, how could there not be? Go on Harry, start banging them in again…
