Warnock scores Salah tumble ‘9.9’

Mohamed Salah could not have “got much higher off the diving board” according to Cardiff manager Neil Warnock after the Egyptian won a penalty in Liverpool’s 2-0 win in the Welsh capital on Sunday.

Salah was grappled inside the area by Cardiff captain Sean Morrison, but the theatrical nature of his fall saw Warnock compare last season’s Premier League player of the year to British Olympic bronze medallist diver Tom Daley.

“We gave him an opportunity didn’t we? He’s got his arms around him,” said Warnock.

“I think the end of it was a 9.9 Tom Daley job. I don’t think he could have got much higher off the diving board at the end of it.”

James Milner converted the spot-kick nine minutes from time to seal Liverpool’s victory that took them back top of the Premier League.
