Mohamed Salah with yet another trophy...a big fish!
The Liverpool man is not long off the back of his Champions League victory and he has been keeping himself busy with other interests ahead of AFCON.
Mohamed Salah triumphed on the first day of June with his Liverpool teammates as they lifted the Champions League trophy in Madrid, the club's sixth in their history. And with summer action ahead for the Egyptian in the African Cup of Nations, the Anfield hero was taking some time out but continued his successful spell.
Salah's fishing trophy
The winger has had an incredible rise to global stardom under the guidance of Jürgen Klopp since joining The Reds from AS Roma, and has also been rather active on social media in that time.
On Instagram, the forward shared several photos in which he can be seen enjoying the crystal clear waters on his short break away from the turf. And it would seem that just lying about on a luxurious yacht at dusk is not enough for the ambitious player, as he published a fantastic pictue of him and yet another trophy...this time in the form of a giant fish.
Whether or not Salah caught the fish himself is not yet clear, although we like to believe he did, chasing it down, tiring it out, then landing it sweetly in the net, as he's done so many times for Liverpool. And it seems as though it was a popular pic to go with as his followers were quick to show their approval, some adding some noteworthy comments.
"Egyptian God," wrote one user. "Rumours say he caught it with his bare hands," joked another. And then there was the devoted fan who wrote, "Catch me...I'm the fish you're looking for."
Salah and his Egyptian teammates face Zimbabwe in the opening fixture of AFCON 2019 on 26 June, followed by their other group games against DR Congo and Uganda.
