Salah got his 2018/19 campaign off to the perfect start by scoring the opener in the Reds' 4-0 victory over West Ham United at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Egyptian international, though, has come under fire after footage was posted on social media which shows him using a mobile phone whilst driving.
The footage, which is believed to have been taken after Sunday's match, shows Salah using his phone at the wheel and then driving off whilst being pursued by selfie-hunting Liverpool fans.
Under UK driving laws, it is illegal to use a handheld mobile phone when driving - even whilst stopped at traffic lights or queuing in traffic.
It is bad that Salah can’t just wind down his window whilst he’s sat there to sign a few bits for the kids but can scroll through insta on his phone like. He will get nicked for being on his phone now as well pic.twitter.com/VTYUs5bJ2D— 🌚 POT NOODLE FRINGE (@POTN00DLEFRING) August 13, 2018
