Salah: No excuse for missing out on Champions League

Mohamed Salah insists there can be no excuse for missing out on Champions League football.

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah believes that there is no excuse from his side after they lost the Champions League to Manchester United.

The 30-year-old admits the team has let fans down this season after they finished fifth-placed on the Premier League table.

Manchester United’s 4-1 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford means fourth place is now out of reach for last season’s beaten finalists.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have underperformed all season and it was only their current 10-match unbeaten run – which included a sequence of seven victories – which gave them a remote chance of qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition.

But their participation in the Europa League, the first time Klopp has not made the top four in a full season at the club, has left Salah frustrated.

“I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this,” the Egypt international, who rarely makes public statements, wrote in a strongly-worded post on Twitter.

“We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed.

“We are Liverpool and qualifying to the competition is the bare minimum.

“I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic post.

“We let you and ourselves down.”
