Liverpool stars saw the funny side of Mohamed Salah’s controversy with his agent by “making fun” of the forward.
The Egyptian forward showed his frustration after getting dragged off the pitch in the Reds’ 1-0 defeat to Chelsea earlier this month.
And it saw the 28-year-old’s agent respond to the decision on Twitter, simply posting a full stop.
This has led to speculation about Salah’s future at the club, with the forward reportedly saying he “wants to leave” Anfield.
But The Athletic have reported that the squad saw the funny side of the situation.
Liverpool’s stars made the Egyptian the target of some “gentle ribbing” following the incident against the Blues.
Salah is into his fourth season with the Reds, scoring 119 goals in just 191 appearances to win a Champions League and Premier League trophy.
But he has suffered a tough campaign this year, seeing the champions sit 43 points behind league leaders Manchester City despite him scoring 25 goals.
And he admitted that the pressure had got to Liverpool – but the forward has a plan.
He said: “Yeah I think it's hard. We had a few players with injuries. We were unlucky but the most important thing is we need to keep fighting.
“I know it's really hard and everyone can see that but as much as everybody keeps giving 100%.
“We focus on next game. If we focus on the big picture we get pressure. We see too much pressure it carries onto the pitch.

“Hopefully we just need to leave the pressure outside the field and just play football.
“It's a big result for us. The team is not in the best shape but we want to fight in the Champions League and Premier League and see what happens.
“We won the game that's the most important thing and hopefully we can continue with that in the Premier League as well.”
