New reports claim that it was due to a handshake snub. The Egyptian star was about to be brought on as a substitute in the 2-2 draw with West Ham when his outgoing head coach is said to have felt aggrieved by their interaction on the sideline. Salah and Klopp were involved in an animated spat next to the fourth official, with Klopp appearing to go over to Salah to embrace him but was shunned.

Fellow substitute Darwin Nunez had to separate the pair, pushing Salah away before they entered the fray. This incident has left many questioning the relationship between Klopp and Salah with only three games remaining in their season. The Sun claims the dispute started over Salah deciding against shaking Klopp’s hand before heading onto the pitch.

Salah was said to have been far from happy at being named as a sub and was not in the best mood throughout the game, while Klopp was unimpressed with the 31-year-old’s behavior. Klopp attempted to downplay the seriousness of the matter after the game, insisting that the situation had been handled. When asked if Salah was okay with it, he added: “That was my impression.” However, Salah added fuel to the fire when walking through the mixed zone on his way out of the stadium, indicating there might be more to the issue.

With just a few more weeks left of Klopp, and possibly Salah’s, final year at Anfield, all involved will likely hope that the spat can be put behind them after a touchline handshake snub kick-started the public row.
