15 Apr Mohamed Salah racism:’That is the best way to close up them’ – Andrew Robertson hails Liverpool celebrity for’silencing’ violent Chelsea lovers with wondergoal
The Liverpool attacker saw a memorable goal against the Blues after being the victim of racist chanting by a part of the club’s fans a week
Andrew Robertson praised Liverpool team-partner Mohamed Salah for”shutting up” that the Chelsea fans who racially abused him with a great long-range attack at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Reds procured a critical 2-0 Premier League triumph over the Blues in the weekend, which saw them return to the peak of the table by 2 points before Manchester City.
A Sadio Mane header started the scoring early in the second half before Salah doubled Liverpool’s lead two minutes later with a magnificent attack from 25-yards from that flew into the upper corner of the internet.
The brilliant goal came only three days following a bunch of Chelsea fans were filmed singing”Salah is a bomber” at a neighborhood pub before the club confronted Slavia Prague at the Europa League.
The Egyptian is a Muslim and there’s been a public outcry of empathy in response to the movie, with Chelsea place to issue substantial bans into the fans accountable.
Robertson endorsed his Liverpool colleague in the wake of the most recent success, realising that his aim was the greatest possible reaction to the dumb hate he’s received.
“There was a little things that’d gone on at the week and that is the best way to close them up,” he informed the Day Standard.
“The team published a statement on the afternoon and Mo was nice about it. It is not fine but he coped with it. It did not change him at all — it did not seem like it, did it?
“Regrettably people are becoming used to things like this now since it’s occurring far too frequently. Raheem Sterling stated the other day the only way to shut people like this up is to evaluate goals and to conquer them (their team). I am aware that it’s just a minority of Chelsea fans but Mo surely quietened down them ”
Salah’s thunderous attack was his 19th Premier League aim of this 2018-19 effort, carrying him flat with City’s Sergio Aguero from the race to the Golden Boot.
The 26-year old has faced plenty of criticism because the turn of this calendar year, having endured an uncharacteristic goal drought, but his most recent attempt was a crude reminder of his own distinctive quality.
Robertson expects Salah’s assurance will then be revived heading into the last weeks of this year, as he added:”It was a wonderful aim. He cut inside and obviously fancied his chances.
“When he struck it, everyone understood it had been in. The place went crazy and fair play .
“He’s come under a little bit of criticism (because of his performances) this year, unfairly in my view. But that will quiet them also and that will give him lots of confidence going into the last games”
Up for Jurgen Klopp’s guys is a massive visit to Portugal from the Champions League quarter-finals to confront Porto on Wednesday, in which they will shield a 2-0 first leg lead.
The Reds will then turn their focus to Cardiff City on Sunday, because the significant fixtures start to stack up in their search for silverware.
