Dancing not Mohamed Salah’s stock-in-trade - Firmino

  /  autty

Roberto Firmino has congratulated Mohamed Salah for winning the African Player of the Year award but he wasn't too impressed with his colleague's dancing.

Liverpool's top scorer was asked to dance on stage after picking up the trophy alongside Reds team-mate Sadio Mane.

Firmino was asked what he thought of the Egypt international's moves and he wasn't very complimentary.

The Brazil international told Liverpoolfc.com: 'I saw it on the internet! I would like to congratulate him on winning the African Player of the Year award for the second consecutive year.

'And yes, I saw that they tried to make him dance… he tried, but I don’t think it’s his forte!'

Salah won the award for the second year running after a fine season for club and country.

The 26-year-old scored 32 goals in the Premier League to win the golden boot and 44 across all competitions last campaign.

Salah, who has 13 league goals this season, is one goal behind Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for this year's race for the golden boot.
