FilGoal | News | Contrary to his coach’s statements, Masuako holds himself responsible for Salah’s penalty kick


West Ham United defender Arthur Masuako held himself responsible for the penalty kick that Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah got in the Premier League meeting between the two teams.

Liverpool reversed their deficit against West Ham to a 2-1 win at AnfieldSalah was the first goal for the Reds.

Masuako published his photo after Salah dropped a tweet on his personal account on Twitter and commented on it, saying: “I still feel angry with myself because of what happened.”

He added, “a disappointing result after our good start in the match.”

The words of the Congolese defender came against the remarks of his coach David Moyes, who believed that Salah did not deserve a penalty.

“I don’t think the game deserves a penalty,” Moyes said in remarks highlighted by the Daily Mail.

“I think Salah dropped himself on the ground,” the West Ham coach added.

And he added, “Masuako stopped because he expected the referee to do something because of the way Salah fell, but the decision went in favor of Liverpool.”

Salah performed the penalty kick himself and scored it in his usual way in the middle of the goal, to tie to Liverpool, who were behind with Pablo Fornals goal since the tenth minute.

Mohamed Salah’s seventh goal in the league this season was the second scorer behind Son Heung-min, and his eighth overall.

The goal is his 102nd in a Liverpool shirt in various tournaments since his arrival at the team.

The victory raised Liverpool’s balance to the 16th point at the top of the Premier League standings, while West Ham’s balance was frozen at the eighth point in the 15th place.
