Mohamed Salah’s new odd look has garnered so much attention that it prompted a comment from a ‘Premier League villain’.

The Liverpool winger shared an image on social media on Friday, May 24 2024, flaunting a new look.

Dressed in beige attire, Salah rocked considerably shorter hair and almost looked unrecognizable to fans.

He captioned the photo on his Instagram and X accounts with a grinning emoji.

Neil Maupay taunts Salah

Salah’s post attracted the attention of Everton striker Neil Maupay, who could not help himself as he bantered the Egyptian superstar.

Maupay, known for his vocal ways on social media, appeared to suggest Salah had a striking resemblance to him with the new hairdo.

The Frenchman wrote on social media, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Welcome to the slap head club brother."

A closer look at Salah’s new hairdo revealed a slight resemblance to Maupay, as both players have stubbled beards and short hair.

Here are some responses from fans after Maupay's slice of banter:


"You’ve been trying to imitate a premier league striker for five years."


"Neil Maupay still pocketing Kopites."


"He’s the biggest troll in the Epl & I love it for him."


"You show quit football geng and focus on your influencing career."

Maupay’s past controversies

This is not the first time Maupay is causing a stir online.

As reported by Football London, the striker trolled Manchester United’s Antony for his antics after his side beat Coventry in the FA Cup semi-final.

In February, Maupay made enemies with Tottenham players after imitating James Maddison’s goal celebration. Spurs players, however, had the last laugh as the North Londoners came from behind to beat Brentford 3-2 in a fiery London derby.

He also made a permanent enemy of Arsenal fans for famously injuring goalkeeper Bernd Leno in June 2020.

Salah hints he is staying at Liverpool

Elsewhere, Sports Brief reported on Mohamed Salah’s strong hint about his future.

The 31-year-old posted an assurance to Liverpool fans via social media, saying they would do everything to win trophies next season as he outlined how important this was for the prestigious English club.

Salah will likely lead Liverpool's assault next season under new manager Arne Slot, who has succeeded club veteran Jurgen Klopp, who departed after seven years in charge.
