If Mohammed Salah fights with confidence and faith, then he barely showed it after this incredible FA Cup semi-final win for Liverpool.

As he walked through the mixed zone at Wembley, he was asked when he would be speaking to reporters next. In a flash, and with a warm, teasing smile, he replied, “When we win all four!”

It was not said as a prediction, but clearly in light-hearted jest. But you nailed it. He may not be scoring at the moment, his fine touch in front of goal let him down temporarily, but this is not a player with a fragile mentality.

The fact that he could joke with journalists gently teases us; Joking about the quadruple quest instead of feeling the weight of it — and the pressure on himself — shows his inner strength. Most players – think Cristiano RonaldoNeymar or Lionel Messi – at his position he would have left with his head down and headphones and refused to engage. But not salah. And no wonder.

Above all, he is a real human being and also, for all the ridiculous talk of selfishness, a good teammate who is willing to work selflessly for the common good. Here at Wembley he ran himself into the ground with his work being backtracked and his smart running off the ball to constantly engage at least two Manchester City Defender. It might not be headline-grabbing stuff, but it’s important.

It left room for sadio mane To shine. It was Salah’s positioning to cut the pass to two defenders from the keeper that allowed his teammate to do it Pressure Zack Steffan into a mistake. His teammates appreciate that. Trent Alexander-Arnold, who with him forms perhaps the best right flank in world football, believes the noise surrounding the Egyptian has reached ridiculous proportions.

Alexander-Arnold said: “I think it’s really unfair what people are saying at the moment. The levels he gets too, he’s kind of a victim of his own success. He is still the top scorer in the First League and he’s just one behind me in terms of assists!! And people say he’s in bad shape?! He is almost the top scorer in the Champions League also.

“What he has done for us over the past five seasons has been outstanding. It’s unfair when people say he’s going through a bad phase. We all believe that he will score goals for us. It’s only a matter of time before he throws it back on the web. That’s it.” Perhaps it’s that complete lack of arrogance that explains Salah’s run at the moment. Most world-class strikers would be extremely selfish if they played games without a goal. But not him.

Here, too, in the end he was willing to outplay others instead of shooting himself from a promising position. It didn’t click right now, but imagine when it does. Maybe this quadruple joke doesn’t look so light-hearted after all.
