Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Egypt and Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah is taking full advantage of the end of a long season to spend time with his lovely family.

Salah scored 30 goals across all competitions as the English giants ended the season without a trophy.

Liverpool ace disappointed after UCL miss

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.
