Liverpool Removes Carlsberg Logo for Mohamed Salah’s Man of the Match Announcement


Liverpool made a subtle change in their announcement of the fan-voted man of the match, specifically for Mohamed Salah. In previous games, the accolade was announced alongside an image that prominently displayed the Carlsberg logo. However, in the recent announcement following their win over Wolves, the sponsorship branding was removed.

This decision was made out of appreciation for the fact that Salah is a Muslim and alcohol is prohibited in Islam. It signifies Liverpool’s effort to not associate Salah with the beer company. It is a thoughtful gesture that recognizes and respects his religious beliefs.

Salah’s performance in the game was indeed deserving of the award. He achieved a milestone surpassing 200 Premier League goal involvements for Liverpool with his two assists. The first assist led to Cody Gakpo’s equalizer, while his second assist set up Andy Robertson’s winning goal.

Furthermore, Salah’s total assists in the Premier League now stands at 62, adding to his impressive tally of 139 goals since joining Liverpool in 2017. He has become only the eighth player in the Premier League era to achieve both the double-century of goal involvements and a century of goals for a single club. Additionally, he is the second fastest player to reach this landmark, with Thierry Henry being the only player ahead of him.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool’s manager, commended Salah’s performance, describing him as an “unbelievable” player who is involved in everything. Klopp praised Salah’s ability to step up during key moments and highlighted his importance to the team.

Liverpool’s decision to remove the Carlsberg logo from Salah’s man of the match announcement is a respectful acknowledgment of his religious beliefs. It emphasizes the club’s commitment to inclusivity and demonstrates their support for their players’ individual identities.
