Liverpool’s Mo Salah refused to accept his man of the match award, after he scored a hat-trick in the clash with Bournemouth on Saturday. Salah’s goals and a Bournemouth own goal ensured that Liverpool extend their winning streak as well as moved to the top of the Premier League table.
At the end of the match, he was named Man of the match by Sky Sports, but the Egyptian insisted he would not accept it, instead presenting James Milner as a more appropriate recipient. Speaking of Milner, Salah said: “I want to congratulate him on his amazing career, he deserves it. Milner hit his 500th Premier League appearance in the match.
