Liverpool goal machine Mohamed Salah has taken to Twitter to tell West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi it was good to see him as their two sides drew with each other at The Hawthorns on Saturday.
Salah was on the scoresheet once again for the Reds as they went into a 2-0 lead, but a second-half comeback by the Baggies saw them earn a point as their form continues to improve under caretaker manager Darren Moore.
Hegazi was at the centre of several contentious moments when he appeared to hit Danny Ings before a flailing arm struck his Egypt international team-mate Salah when challenging for an aerial ball.
The Egyptian duo were pictured talking to each other with their mouths covered at the end of the game, and it’s obvious there was no bad blood between them after the game.
“Happy to see my brother,” Salah said on his personal Twitter account after Hegazi posted an image of himself and his son with the Liverpool attacker.

Football Insider verdict
Salah and Hegazi appeared to be having a bit of a disagreement after the game, but it was hard to tell due to the way they covered their mouths to ensure lip-readers wouldn’t pick up what they were saying. Hegazi had a shocker against the Reds and was very lucky to not be sent off when he hit Ings in the second-half. The Egyptian defender was reportedly a target for Liverpool in January before he made his loan deal at The Hawthorns permanent, but there’s no way that the Reds should be looking at him with his form so bad this term, despite the common perception he has been a good signing.
