Video: ‘No shame’ – These fans react to Mo Salah’s ‘dive’ for Liverpool vs Aston Villa

In the 73rd minute of Liverpool’s Premier League encounter against relegation candidates Aston Villa, superstar Mohamed Salah sent some fans into a frenzy with an alleged ‘dive’ in the box.

The Reds talisman had the ball in the box and just as he knocked it past Tyrone Mings, the Egyptian was tangled between the England international and centre-back partner Kortney Hause.

Whether intentional or not we have to be objective and state that Hause’s arm went across Salah’s which led to the forward crashing down to the floor.

The Liverpool star appeared to protest the decision but the referee deemed that there wasn’t enough contact to warrant a penalty, just because this wasn’t a foul does that automatically mean Salah dived?

Take a look at the incident that’s incensed some football fans the most below:

Here’s some reaction from some viewers of the game to Salah’s apparent theatrics:

Are some supporters perhaps blowing this incident out of proportion as there was minimal contact with Salah or is this a blatant dive by the superstar in a bid to win a penalty that should be punished?
