Conor Coady has revealed how Mohamed Salah led the taunts from Liverpool‘s players after the Wolves captain penalised for diving in a Premier League game at Anfield.

Coady went down in the penalty area after anticipating contact from Sadio Mane during the league clash last December.

VAR overturned the decision, which Coady knew was coming as soon as he heard the whistle go, and the Wolves skipper reveals how the Reds team responded in the immediate aftermath.

Speaking on Jamie Carragher’s The Greatest Game podcast, Coady said: ‘As the ball comes in, you know when you’re thinking someone is going to touch you, as I’m thinking that he (Mane) is going to touch me.

‘He never, he moved his foot dead quick. So I go down and I was hoping that the referee wouldn’t blow his whistle.

‘The next minute, the whistle goes and I just put my head down into the turf and thought “oh for f*** sake”.

‘I’m thinking they’re obviously going to see it on VAR. I’m walking back and all the Liverpool players are giving me stick, I just put my head down and walked back.

‘I remember as I’m walking back Salah, of all people, said to me “you can’t do that, my friend”. I didn’t even appeal about it.
