Salah deletes Twitter account after sending cryptic tweet


Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah, has shocked supporters by deleting his Twitter account hours after sending out a cryptic tweet.

The Egypt international sent out a very late New Year’s resolution on Tuesday evening, before closing his account.

Salah wrote to his 7.78million followers: “2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real.”

His account could no longer be reached on Wednesday morning, with the URL redirecting to a ‘Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!’ notice.

Salah’s action has led to supporters, of both Liverpool and other clubs, questioning why he would delete his Twitter account after sending the cryptic message.

Salah scored his 50th Premier League goal in last Saturday’s defeat of Crystal Palace, becoming the fourth fastest player to hit the half-century mark; only Andy Cole, Alan Shearer and Ruud van Nistelrooy achieved the feat in fewer than Salah’s 72 appearances.

He netted twice in the 4-3 win that ensures Liverpool remain four points clear at the top of the Premier League table, ahead of reigning champions Manchester City.

The Reds are not in action this weekend having been knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves in the third round, and their next match pits them against Leicester on January 30 – the day before transfer deadline day.
