Are you kidding me? - Twitter reacts after Mohamed Salah wins Puskas Award

Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah

Bengaluru, September 25: Liverpool star Mohamed Salah was awarded the Puskas Award 2018, but received a mixed response from the fans.

Salah's strike against Everton in which he dribbled past multiple defenders to curl the ball into the top corner was declared as the best goal of the year.

Ten goals made the shortlist for the award including Gareth Bale's overhead kick against Liverpool in the UEFA Champions League final, and Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational bicycle kick against his current club Juventus. But, the award was given to Salah.

The Liverpool forward was also nominated for the Best Player award, but was beaten to hit by Real Madrid's Luka Modric. He also failed to make the FIFAPro XI.

Some fans felt there were a few goals which were better than the Egyptian's strike, while some felt he was given the award as a consolation for missing out on the other awards.

Here is how some fans reacted to Salah's Puskas Award on Twitter,
