Liverpool’s “Pharaoh” Mohamed Salah has apologized to fans.
Salah took to social media on Saturday to apologize to fans after Liverpool missed out on next season’s UEFA Champions League.
Liverpool’s rivals Manchester United completed a 4-1 victory over Chelsea on Saturday in the 32nd round of the 2022/23 Premier League season.
The win over Chelsea moved United to third place in the league with 72 points (22 wins, 6 draws, 9 losses). They also secured at least a fourth-place finish in the league and qualified for next season’s Champions League.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is in fifth place with 66 points (19 wins, 9 draws, and 9 losses) with one league game remaining. With fourth-place Newcastle on 70 points (19 wins, 13 draws, and 5 losses), Liverpool can’t leapfrog them even if they win the league’s 38th round.
If United had lost at Chelsea, Liverpool could have pulled off a miracle in round 38. United’s victory ended the match, ending their six-year absence from the Champions League since the 2016/17 season.
Salah, who watched the game just in case, was quick to apologize to the fans after the result didn’t go his way.
“I’m completely devastated. “I’m completely devastated, there are no excuses,” he said. “We did everything we needed to do to qualify for the Champions League next season and we failed.
“We are Liverpool and qualifying for the competition was the minimum requirement,” he added, “I’m sorry. It’s too early for an optimistic post. We have let you and ourselves down,” he apologized.
Salah, who was the Premier League’s top scorer alongside Son Heung-min (Tottenham Hotspur) last season, continued to be a focal point of the Reds’ attack this season with 19 goals and 11 assists in the league, but was unable to lead Liverpool to the Champions League 스포츠토토.
Despite missing out on the Champions League, Liverpool will play in next season’s Europa League alongside sixth-place Brighton & Hove Albion.
With sixth-place Brighton on 62 points (18 wins, eight draws, and 11 losses) and seventh-place Aston Villa on 58 points (17 wins, seven draws, and 13 losses), Liverpool, with 66 points, will finish the 2022/23 Premier League season in fifth place regardless of the outcome of the league’s 38th round.
Salah, who has played exclusively in the Champions League since joining the Reds in the summer of 2017, will be playing in the Europa League instead of the Champions League for the first time since joining Liverpool.
