Egypt and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah could be in trouble with police after his club passed a video apparently showing him using his mobile phone while driving.
A spokesman for last season’s Champions League finalists said they passed the video, which had circulated on social media, on to police after talking with Salah. “The club, after discussion with the player, have made Merseyside Police aware of the footage and the circumstances surrounding its capture,” said the spokesman on BBC.
“We have spoken to the player also and will deal with any follow-up internally. Neither the club or player will be making any further comment on this matter.”
Merseyside Police tweeted they had received the footage. “We have been made aware of a video believed to show a footballer using a mobile phone whilst driving. This has been passed to the relevant department. Thanks for letting us know,” they tweeted on their official account.
Salah, could if found guilty of using his mobile, face a fine of up to £1000 and points on his licence.
