The legend of Manchester United, the former English international, Gary Neville, criticized the Egyptian star Mohamed Salah for his “selfishness” during the course of the match between Liverpool and Arsenal, which was held on Monday.
Neville strongly criticized Salah’s snatching the ball from his Portuguese teammate Diogo Jota in front of Arsenal’s goal, although the latter was in a good position to score, before the Egyptian player ended up losing the ball.

Neville said in statements highlighted by the British newspaper “Mirror”: “Salah should not do that. This is the selfish part of his playing style.”
He added, “It is not Salah’s chance, but he snatched the ball in front of Jota, and although this greed is one of Salah’s greatest strengths, he should have left the ball to his colleague.”
“Jota would have scored a goal without Salah interfering. You cannot do that. As much as he is a great player, he knows that this is not his chance.”
The match ended with Liverpool winning 3-1, and Jota, who entered as a substitute, managed to score the third goal, while Salah was not lucky enough to visit Arsenal.
