On Monday, August 13th, Mohamed Salah was filmed riding his car on a main road, while some people were trying to get him to sign autographs.
The Egypt and Liverpool footballer had his phone on his lap at that time, and he used it for a couple of seconds before going off with his car, leaving the fans behind, like he should!
So many rumors and media attacks have surrounded this incident; some people are being sarcastic about the fact that he’s being referred to as a humble and nice guy, some are saying Liverpool called the police on him for violating the law and using his phone while driving, while others are supporting him of course.
However, it turned out that it was some sort of a set up by a known Reds fan named Rob Wylie, who uses kids in traffic to get shirts and autographs signed by sportsmen and footballers to sell them online. It’s basically his business, and he was also the one to share the video on Facebook!
After what really happened broke out, people started to side with our Salah, saying that he made the right choice by not acknowledging the guy, who did not just chase him, but also shouted “Too much money” and “Horrible man”, after he went off with his car.
Honestly, what was he supposed to do? Get out of the car on a MAIN road? Open the window so anyone could have easily harmed his wife or daughter, who appeared to be with him in the car?
People who are trying to get him fined and punished for using his phone are just absurd! The guy wasn’t even using it while he was driving. Additionally, if he had opened the window to greet the fans or got out of the car, it would have been a bigger and more dangerous traffic problem, right?
Some people seem to have forgotten what this guy does for the fans, almost EVERY single match, the last of them was the one against Napoli in Dublin. When he was the last on the pitch, as always, that security had to drag him inside, because he stayed for almost two hours signing shirts, and taking pictures with the fans.
Also, remember when fans literally mobbed his house in Egypt in the middle of the night, on his break after the World Cup? Unlike anyone else, who should have just called the police and went back to sleep, he risked everything and got out to take pictures with ALL of them! Such an un-humble thing to do, right?
We think that people should just leave the guy alone and let him chase his dreams and keep on making us proud, PEACEFULLY! What do you guys think?
