Warnock: Salah dive deserved a 9.9

Boss Neil Warnock likened Mohamed Salah to Olympic diver Tom Daley after the Liverpool forward earned a penalty during Cardiff City’s 2-0 defeat in the Premier League.

In the match at the Cardiff City Stadium, Sean Morrison was penalised for grabbing Salah’s shirt and teammate James Milner converted the resulting spot-kick.

“I thought it was a soft one. We gave him an opportunity. He’s got his arms around him and everything.

“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. I am sure you will be saying Warnock’s a moaning so and so again,” said Warnock of the penalty.

The 70-year-old also went on to question why his side were not awarded a clear penalty in the same match.

“Just after half-time, the tug on Morrison’s shirt, which should have been spotted. When Graeme Souness [former Liverpool captain and current TV pundit] and that says letter of the law it’s a penalty because he stopped him having a clear header goal, nothing much is said about that.

“Morrison has been pulled from post to post, and we haven’t had one penalty. We are not going to start getting them now.”

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League with the win, while Warnock’s Cardiff remain in the relegation zone.
