- Mohamed Salah has expressed disappointment after Liverpool missed out on the UCL
- Manchester United defeated Chelsea to seal their place in the top 4
- Liverpool will compete in the Europa League next season
Fans of the English Premier League have taken to social media to react to Mohamed Salah's post after Manchester United beat Chelsea to end Liverpool's hopes of a Champions League finish.
The Red Devils thrashed Chelsea 4-1 to move into third place and secure the last UEFA Champions League spot for England after Newcastle United confirmed their place on Tuesday with a draw against Leicester City.
With a game left, Liverpool are four points behind fourth place Newcastle United.
The Egyptian forward took to social media to establish his disappointment after failing to make it into Europe's elite club competition.
"I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this. We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed. We are Liverpool and qualifying to the competition is the bare minimum. I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic post. We let you and ourselves down," Salah wrote on Twitter.
His post drew several reactions from fans of rival clubs, with some trolling the Reds for missing the UEFA Champions League.
How fans reacted:
Keep crying, Thursday nights on Kazakhstan for you. HOLD THAT
Take heart salah, spurs are nowhere.
Found out he was playing Thursday night football in Lithuania on Thursday nights
He had this in his drafts
Garnacho is playing Champion league football next season, but Salah can't! so painful
9 wins in a row for nothing
7up n all that, aye.
Salah reacts to UCL failure
Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah released a worrying statement after his side failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.
The Reds will have to play in the second-tier Europa League in the 2023-24 season, after Manchester United’s win over Chelsea on Thursday confirmed their place in the final Champions League spot.
This is certainly unfamiliar territory for Salah, as it is the first time Liverpool have failed to qualify for the Champions League since 2017.
