Liverpool ace Salah was driving down the road after the Reds’ successful start to the Premier League season with a 4-1 win over Norwich.

Excited fan Louis Fowler ran face first into a lamppost while trying to keep up the footie star’s car.

The 11-year-old knocked himself out and was left with a bloody nose.

Kind footie star Salah stopped his car and jumped out to make sure the little fan was okay – posing for a picture with the lad. 

Speaking on ITV show Good Morning Britain, Louis joked Salah actually gave him a telling off. 

“[Salah] was like ‘Why are you running like that?’”

Louis and his brother Isaac, 10, were waiting outside Liverpool’s training ground on Saturday.

They saw Salah pulling out of the ground, and Louis dashed after the Egyptian footie star. 

He ran face first into a lamppost and was left unconscious on the floor as blood gushed from his nose.

And as Louis was taken home, he came too and realised Salah had pulled up outside his house.

Louis told GMB: “I had a really bloody nose, someone took me home back to my front garden and I just saw Salah’s car by our house.  

“I was still spaced out so I didn’t really know what was happening, but he got out of his car and posed for a picture.”

The boy added: “He was like ‘Why are you running like that?'”

GMB presenter Kate Garraway asked if Mr Salah was telling him off, Louis jokingly replied: “Yeah, sort of.”

Louis was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to get his nose fixed – and is now recovering from his face smash.

Pictures of Salah giving the thumbs up next to the bloody nosed lad have gone viral. 

His stepdad Joe Cooper had revealed the two boys are spending their school holidays trying to catch glimpses of the Liverpool stars.

The family live opposite Melwood and regularly try to spot their favourite footballers.

“Mo Salah was one of the last ones to come out and the boys were waving at him in a bid to catch his attention,” Joe told Liverpool Echo.

“Unfortunately Louis went straight into a lamppost while running after the car and busted his nose when he hit the floor.”

He added: “We were still trying to work out what had happened when Mo arrived.

“He’d seen one of the boys had hurt himself and he had the decency to drive back into the close to check that he was OK. (took off quote mark)

Joe said: “No-one could believe it. Everyone was gobsmacked. Mo asked if the boys were all right and gave them a big hug which was what they both needed.

“They were made up and Louis forgot all about being injured. It was a touch of class on Mo Salah’s part to turn round and actively come looking for the boys.

“He was really apologetic and saying sorry for something that wasn’t his fault.

“I’d just like to say a big thank you to him. He’s a top bloke. Mo Salah is their hero and the boys were made up.”
