Neal Maupay goes viral with cheeky response to Mo Salah who shows off dramatic new look

Neal Maupay goes viral with a cheeky response to Mo Salah who shows off a dramatic new look in shaving off his afro hair.

During the post-season break, Liverpool players are taking the opportunity to share updates from their holiday destinations around the world before they resume their international duties or pre-season training.

One particular Instagram post from Mo Salah meanwhile caught the attention of many, as he revealed his new bald head.

The Egyptian international has shaved off his trademark hair and trimmed his beard as he prepares for life under Arne Slot following the departure of Jurgen Klopp.

This caught the attention of Neal Maupay, who retweeted Salah’s photo and said: “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Welcome to the slap head club brother 🙏🏼”

Much has been made of Mohamed Salah’s future and whether he would stay at Liverpool after Klopp leaves.

He has since said that the Reds “will fight like hell” to win trophies next season as he hinted he will at least see out the final year of his contract at Anfield.

Salah has just 12 months remaining on his deal and is being linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League, but a £150m offer from Al-Ittihad for the 31-year-old was reportedly rejected last September.

“We know that trophies are what count and we will do everything possible to make that happen next season,” Salah posted on social media.

“Our fans deserve it and we will fight like hell.”
