Despite not scoring in Liverpool’s comeback victory over Wolves, Mohamed Salah made a significant impact in helping Jurgen Klopp’s side secure three points.
Wolverhampton Wanderers took the lead when Hwang Hee-chan scored, giving the hosts an advantage at halftime.
However, Liverpool equalized thanks to Cody Gakpo, and Andy Robertson put Liverpool ahead with just five minutes remaining. Hugo Bueno’s own goal sealed a 3-1 victory for the visitors.
In the match, Salah provided two assists, setting up both Gakpo and Robertson. As a result, Liverpool awarded their star player the Player of the Match award.
Liverpool has a long history with Danish lager producer Carlsberg, which served as the club’s shirt sponsor for several years in the early 2000s.
Carlsberg currently sponsors the club’s Player of the Match award, and their logo typically appears on social media when Liverpool announces their selection for the best player in games.
However, the logo was notably absent for the selection of Mohamed Salah, and there’s a respectful and considerate reason behind this. Salah is a devout Muslim, and in Islam, the consumption of alcohol is forbidden. This is why Liverpool chose to remove the Carlsberg logo from the Player of the Match award for Salah, a decision that has garnered praise from fans on social media.
