Dejan Lovren has taken to Instagram to share his hilarious messages with Mohamed Salah following Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Manchester United.
Salah scored the second in injury time at Anfield as Liverpool moved 16 points ahead at the top of the Premier League table.
He celebrated by taking his shirt off and teammate Lovren joked with the Egyptian on WhatsApp at the full-time whistle.
Lovren captioned the post with: “What the writer wanted to say. That he is strong? Body fat? Muscles? Goal? Never mind it was only a ‘mistake’. Well done boys today.”
He also shared a message in September when he joked with Salah about his physique and wanting to show it off.
The duo are good friends off the pitch and it’s not the first time they’ve ribbed one another on social media previously.
The Egyptian King sent his teammate a ‘Happy new Year’ message not long after 2018 became 2019 and the Croatian defender returned the favour.
It’s a great example of how close Liverpool’s squad are as they romp to their first ever Premier League title.
They are currently unbeaten in the Premier League and are ten games away from winning the title earlier than anyone in history.
They play Manchester City in the first week of April and victory against Pep Guardiola’s side would be a sweet way to secure Premier League glory.
But manager Jurgen Klopp isn’t getting carried away.
“They can sing whatever they want – apart from my name before the game is finished!
“I’m not here to dictate what they have to sing. If our fans would not be in a good mood now, that would be really strange.
“The only thing that I can tell you is that we are here to work. It’s as easy as that.”
