Mohamed Salah has jetted into Dubai following the end of Liverpool's Premier League campaign.

The Egyptian forward posted an image on his social media accounts showing him on a boat off the Dubai coast.

Amid the fading light, the joint Premier League Golden Boot winner - Salah scored 22 league goals during the season along with teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang - raises his arms with the Ain Dubai observation wheel on Bluewaters Island in the background.

Salah and his Liverpool teammates have been given time off ahead of the Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur on June 1 in Madrid.

The players are due to return to training at the end of the week.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said his squad will have "two proper weeks as a pre-season for the Champions League final".

“We will do that, we will play that, [hopefully] win it, come home and then the people [would] get what they deserve,” he said following the disappointment of missing out on the Premier League title to Manchester City last Sunday.

Salah's daughter cheered up the Anfield crowd after their final league match against Wolves, as she proceeded to dribble a ball around the pitch and then score in front of the Kop end, creating what turned into a viral internet moment.

She has clearly inherited an eye for goal from her father, who became just the sixth player to win the Golden Boot in successive years, after Alan Shearer, Michael Owen, Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie and Harry Kane.

Salah has been seen in Dubai several times in recent years. In January, Liverpool were in the emirate for warm weather training, while in March he attended a sponsorship event.
