Liverpool fans on Twitter knew that rivals would slate them for Salah penalty

Football can be a toxic game at times with the way that rival fans act on social media, and Liverpool fans often have to take it as badly as anyone. Yesterday, though, they knew what was coming after Mo Salah won a penalty against Cardiff they were all bracing themselves for complaints from rival fans over the decision.

The Kopites were expecting all sorts after the decision was made, and with recent claims from rival supporters that their Egyptian ace is a diver and all sorts of other abuse, they knew it was happening again. There was simply nothing that could be done, though, Salah was wrestled to the ground by Sean Morrison and it was as stonewall a penalty as you’ll ever see.

Even without the penalty, the Reds would have won the game 1-0 thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum’s opener. They weren’t about to complain about the penalty shout when it was given and would have been in complete agreement with the referee as he pointed to the spot. James Milner stepped up and did what he does best after the pen was given, and the Reds will be quick to block out abuse from their rivals.

You can read the Kopites’ verdict on the penalty here:

The Reds are all in agreement that the foul on Salah was just that, and will be quick to ignore the rival supporters who argue otherwise.
