Mohamed Salah won’t care about the yellow card he received after removing his shirt while celebrating his goal against Manchester United on Sunday.
The Liverpool forward netted in the 93rd minute to seal a 2-0 win for the runaway Premier League leaders, whose lead at the top is now 16 points.
And Salah went on to reveal his ripped figure after slotting the ball past David De Gea late on.
The 27-year-old is a shadow of the man who arrived at Chelsea in 2014 unable to find a place in the starting line-up.
That’s both in terms of his output on the pitch and in his figure.
Salah had a slight frame when he joined the Blues.
But he’s spent a considerable amount of time adding lean muscle to his physique, as his body transformation from 2014 to now shows.

He can clearly cope with the physicality of the Premier League now.
The forward explained his fitness routine in an interview with Egyptian network ON Ent in 2018.
“Normally, I get up early to go for training which starts either in the morning in the afternoon,” he said.
“Then I come here for recovery for almost two hours. Therapy for any injuries or specific massage so you mitigate any suffering of your body.
“After that, I go to the gym here at the club which is optional for players.
“After training, I do stretching and recovery again. Finally, I go to the pool at the club or with Macca (daughter) at home. I finish all these activities around 7 or 8pm.
“Training is not that long but I prolong the training in order to be ready for the coming matches.”
Salah added: “I arrange the whole process with the coach since he has the final word about all these activities but he gives us the choice to go to the gym, or do therapy but shooting and finishing training must be done through him.”
Salah’s hard work is paying off.
He’s enjoying another superb campaign, with 15 goals in all competitions.
