Salah expressed his displeasure on Thursday via his official Twitter handle, “I’m totally devastated. There’s absolutely no excuse for this.”
“We had everything we needed to make it to next year’s Champions League and we failed,” he said.
The Egyptian admitted to the fans that there was no excuse for the loss, adding that the team failed to meet expectations.
“We are Liverpool and qualifying for the competition is the bare minimum. I am sorry but it’s too soon for an uplifting or optimistic post. We let you and ourselves down,” he said.
Salah, 30, who renewed a three-year contract with Liverpool last summer, has scored 19 league goals this season, with six coming in 14 games before the 2022 World Cup and 13 in 23 games following the tournament.
