Chelsea loanee has to buy dinner for teammates after on-field faux pas; coach sends him to ATM

Mohamed Salah has to buy dinner for his teammates after being called out for not passing enough while in action for AS Roma.

The Giallorossi—making the most of slip-ups from Inter Milan and Fiorentina—revived their Champions League qualification hopes by securing a 2-1 victory over Sampdoria on Sunday evening.

While Luciano Spalletti—who replaced Rudi Garcia as Roma head coach earlier in the campaign—will be delighted with the performance, he isn’t happy with one aspect of Salah’s game.

The Egypt international is currently on loan at the capital club from Chelsea after being deemed surplus to requirements by Jose Mourinho earlier in the campaign.

Despite concerns with fitness and suspension this season, the wideman has largely impressed, even if he fell short at the weekend—in Roma’s third consecutive victory.

“He doesn’t pass the ball to his teammates?” Spalletti asked incredulously after the match, as per Goal. “He have the rule that those who don’t pass the ball have to buy their teammate dinner.

“Salah now has to go to the ATM.”

So far this season, the Egyptian attacker has scored six goals in 20 Serie A appearances so far this season—of which 18 have been starts. However, he is yet to manage an assist so far this campaign, lending weight to Spalletti’s suggestion that the forward must be more generous when in possession!
