Mohamed Salah bear hugs Chelsea’s David Luiz and Willian in tunnel before Liverpool game

Mohamed Salah earned the respect of Chelsea fans on Saturday when he refused to celebrate against his former club.

The Liverpool star scored his 15th goal of the season against Chelsea, but simply raised his hands in a show of respect for his time at Stamford Bridge.

It was also a tribute to his homeland who suffered a terrible tragedy recently when 305 Egyptians were killed in a terrorist attack on a mosque.

And cameras picked up Salah before the game reuniting with the Chelsea staff and saying hello to his former team-mates.
