Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has deactivated his social media accounts after he posted a cryptic message on Twitter.

He tweeted yesterday: โ€œ2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for realโ€, and then seemingly deleted both his Instagram and Twitter accounts where he had 23 million and 7.7 million followers, respectively.

However, it seems all this might have come from Salah wanting to focus more on his team and helping them win the league.

The star forward has recently come under fire for what some people view as diving.

Who knows how long this blackout will last?
