Mo Salah snubs Gary Neville during Fifa Best awards… but Manchester United legend sees the funny side

GARY NEVILLE laughed off an awkward “snubbing” from Mo Salah during the Fifa Best awards.

The Liverpool superstar walked straight past Neville and Sky Sports presenter Kelly Cates after being asked to do an interview on the green carpet.

When asked for “a couple of minutes” by Cates, Salah simply shakes Neville’s hand and strolls by with a smile on his face.

Cates laughed: “Oops, that answers that then!”

Manchester United legend Neville saw the funny side as he turned to the camera and said: “That’s a no!”

Salah, 26, was himself snubbed as he finished third in the voting for Fifa Men’s World Player 2018 behind winner Luka Modric and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Egypt forward, who scored a Premier League record 32 goals for Liverpool last season, won 11.23 per cent of the votes, with Modric claiming 29.05 per cent and Ronaldo 19.08 per cent.

But Salah DID win the Puskas award for his stunning Merseyside derby strike against Everton.

Fans voted for his effort ahead of Gareth Bale’s Champions League final overhead kick against the Reds and Cristiano Ronaldo’s bicycle kick against Juventus.

Liverpool team-mate James Milner poked fun at Salah, tweeting: “Congrats Mo Salah on your 7th best goal from last season winning goal of the year.”

Twitter users were left equally baffled.

One post read: “No offence to Salah but how did he win that Puskas award??”

Another read: “That Salah goal was good but that was one of the worst goals in the Puskas award.”
