He even chose to trim his eyebrows. That and his new hair do led to some of his Liverpool teammates giving their thought son it, either approving or mocking it.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain posted a hilarious reply to Salah, suggesting he may have copied his own hair style.

“I’d hate to say you copied my trim, but…. lookin fresh my brother,” wrote AOC.

Several other Liverpool players got in on the action, including Curtis Jones, who wrote: “I like bro,” accompanied by a laughing emoji.

Harvey Elliott also paid Salah a complement, as he wrote: “Freshest King.”

While Alisson Becker simply said on Twitter: “Finally.”

Since his move to Merseyside three years ago, the Egyption has scored 94 goals and provided 41 assists in 152 appearances in all competitions.

His best mate in Dejan Lovren left Liverpool for Zenit St Petersburg and manager Jurgen Klopp acknowledged Salah had lost his ‘bezzie.’

“Yesterday we said, ‘Who is now the best friend of Mo?’ because they were really real, real bezzies. They were really close and that’s the thing, we will miss him.”

In his reaction to Lovren’s exit, the two-African Footballer of the Year said he was speechless and he would miss his “great friend” so much.

“I don’t know how to say, my friend. You don’t know my feeling right now. We’re really going to miss you a lot – especially me,” Salah, 28, told the club website.

“You’ve been an unbelievable player and a great friend for me. We’re going to miss you a lot. I miss you a lot, I love you so much. You’ve been fantastic outside the field and inside the field.”

In recent days, speculation is starting to grow on whether Mo is looking to go.

“I just want to enjoy today and enjoy the moment,” Salah said in the aftermath of the title celebrations. “No one knows the future and what will happen. Let’s see what will happen. But at the moment we win the Champions League, we win the Premier League, I’m happy.”

Pre-lockdown, Jurgen Klopp confirmed he didn’t know whether the forward would stay beyond this season.

“I have no idea, actually, but you could ask me the same question for all the others and I have no idea. I didn’t think about it until [the press] asked me,” he told a press conference, not exactly easing the worries of Liverpool fans.
