Jordan Henderson hits back at Mo Salah’s critics

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has hit back at Mo Salah’s critics.

Egypt international was booed by Brighton fans during the match after scoring from penalty. Fans think Salah dived to be awarded penalty.

Henderson said (via LiverpoolECHO): “Yeah, Mo’s the same,”

“He’s got this very strong mentality and I thought he was brilliant at Brighton.

“He will do things that some fans might not see that often but they should enjoy him because he is world class.

“It was a penalty, a clear penalty. There’s nothing to talk about that.

“In terms of Mo, I would think away grounds would be appreciative of what they see. The things he does, I’m sure he is a joy to watch.

“If they try to put pressure on him, they will only make him better. It won’t bother him. He’s so strong, I know he is.

“The more people are against him, the more he will want to prove them wrong. I’m not worried about that. When he goes to away grounds, people should appreciate him. He will do things that people want to see.” he added.
