Mo Salah Has Absolutely No Idea What Jon Flanagan Says During Liverpool Training

Mo Salah Has Absolutely No Idea What Jon Flanagan Says During Liverpool Training

Mo Salah has the footballing world at his feet at the moment but no matter how many balls he puts in the top corner at Anfield, he still can’t understand a word Jon Flanagan says.

The Egyptian winger scored his 20th goal in all competitions for Liverpool in yesterday’s 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, making the £35 million fee paid to Roma for his services in the summer look positively paltry.

But whilst he looks incredible on the football pitch, it’s a different story in the dressing room, with the Scouse accent still getting the better of the 25-year-old.

Speaking in an interview via the club’s official website, via TeamTalk, the ex-Chelsea forward explained:

“I understand Scouse but it’s very difficult. The accent is so hard to understand. Flanno’s (Jon Flanagan’s) accent is the worst one, I cannot understand anything from him. The way he is talking is like he’s not talking normally

“I am happy when the fans sing my name. It makes you feel like ‘wow’. It changes your emotions. I have to thank the fans very much for singing my name. Really, I respect it a lot.

“As a team I know we haven’t won the Premier League for a long time so I would love to win it with Liverpool. We have a great team, we have a great manager so everything is good at the club. I am sure we can win trophies here together.”

Now, in all fairness to Salah,there’s probably a lot of people on Merseyside who have absolutely no idea what Jon Flanagan is saying half the time, so he probably shouldn’t worry too much about it.

He’s been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid – perhaps he’d understand the Spanish lingo slightly better.
