MOHAMED SALAH showed his class even in defeat after handing Napoli boss Carlo Ancelotti his shirt.
The Egyptian forward, 26, once again drew a blank as Liverpool slipped to a last-gasp, 1-0 defeat in the second game of their Champions League campaign.
After winning in the dying seconds against Paris Saint-Germain in their first clash, it wasn’t to be in Naples last night.
But even though Salah continues to be frustrated this season – scoring just three times in ten matches in all competitions – he has maintained his class.
Following the full-time whistle, with Lorenzo Insigne’s winner still fresh in the memory, Salah trudged towards the changing rooms.
Rather than keeping his head down, the former Roma star headed straight to Ancelotti and gave him his shirt.
It topped what turned out to be a superb night for Ancelotti’s Napoli after their frustrating draw against Red Star Belgrade a fortnight ago.
And on the win, Ancelotti said: “We were very good defensively, we didn’t give anything away.
“We had the chances to score earlier, but I think we timed the goal well.
“If we had scored a few minutes earlier, we would have had more time suffering!”
