Salah comforts star-struck Liverpool fan who injured nose

Salah comforts star-struck Liverpool fan who injured nose

An 11-year-old Liverpool fan met Mo Salah after he knocked himself out running into a lamp-post as he tried to keep up with the footballer's vehicle.

Louis Fowler, 11, crashed into a lamppost and fell to the ground with blood coming out of his nose after he and his younger brother Isaac ran beside Salah's auto on Saturday while waving at the Liverpool player, Sky News reported.

In a bid to get a wave from his footballing hero, young Louis took his eyes off the path and ran straight into a streetlamp - "busting his nose" in the process.

However, amidst all the excitement, Louis ran straight into a lamp post.

When Salah noticed it, he circled round to check on him and posed for pictures to cheer up the young boy.

After watching the collision, neighbors brought the two boys back to the street where they live which is close by the training ground, the boys' stepdad, Joe Cooper, told the Liverpool Echo.

"Mo asked if the boys were all right and gave them a big hug, which was what they both needed".

Nationals: RHP Max Scherzer (mild strain in upper back) threw a 36-pitch bullpen at almost full effort and came out feeling well. Mets starter Noah Syndergaard allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five over seven innings.


Cooper was extremely impressed and full of praise for Salah, as he continued: 'They were made up and Louis forgot all about being injured.

Louis was taken to Alder Hey children's hospital to be checked over, but thankfully, other than having to get his nose re-set, he was fine. "You are a top man and a true gent!", he wrote.

"We were still trying to work out what had happened when Mo arrived", Cooper said.

It comes a day after Salah was on the scoresheet for the Reds as Liverpool beat newly-promoted Norwich 4-1 at Anfield. It was a touch of class on Mo Salah's part to turn round and actively come looking for the boys.

"He was really apologetic and saying sorry for something that wasn't his fault", he added. I'd just like to say a big thank you to him.
