Mohamed Salah embraces Liverpool's post-Jurgen Klopp era with bold new look

Mohamed Salah embraces Liverpool's post-Jurgen Klopp era with bold new look

Mohamed Salah has unveiled a striking new look as he prepares for life under Liverpool's incoming manager Arne Slot.

The Egyptian forward, 31, has shaved off his trademark hair and trimmed his beard ahead of the 2023-’24 season.

Salah posted a mirror selfie on social media on Friday morning, sporting a beige shirt and shorts outfit, with a caption consisting of only a smiling face emoji.

His fresh appearance drew a cheeky response from Everton striker Neal Maupay, who said on X: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Welcome to the slap head club brother."

Some of Salah's fans hit back at Maupay, with one replying: "Does Salah even know your name?"

Salah's makeover comes after he scored 25 goals in all competitions last season as Liverpool finished third in the Premier League and won the Carabao Cup.

However, the Reds missed out on other major honours, prompting Salah to make a vow to supporters on X earlier this week.

"We know that trophies are what count and we will do everything possible to make that happen next season," he said.

"Our fans deserve it and we will fight like hell."

Salah has netted 155 Premier League goals for Liverpool since joining from Roma in 2017, winning three Golden Boots.

He has also lifted the Premier League title in 2020, the Champions League in 2019, an FA Cup, two League Cups, the Fifa Club World Cup, Uefa Super Cup and Community Shield.

Salah's new look symbolises the start of a new era at Anfield following Jurgen Klopp's emotional departure as manager after six trophy-laden years.

The German bid farewell after Liverpool's 2-0 win over Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.

Klopp will be replaced by Dutchman Slot, while defensive duo Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara are also leaving the club.

Salah, who has one year remaining on his £350,000-a-week contract, is now heading off for a summer break before returning to work under Slot.
