The Liverpool star, 28, was driving his £160,000 Bentley Continental GT when he got the flat tyre heading southbound near Knutsford, Cheshire.

Mo Salah needed the AA to come to his assistance after suffering a puncture on his Bentley Continental GT on the M6

But thankfully for the Egyptian, the AA were quickly on hand to provide a crucial assist.

AA patrol Rob Ridgeon helped Salah's Bentley on to the recovery truck before taking the car and the Premier League winner back to the player's home.

The classy Bentley is part of Salah's impressive fleet of motors which also includes a £271k Lamborghini Aventador, two Mercedez-Benz wagons worth a combined £250k, a £54k Audi Q7 and - ermm - a Toyota Camry costing £29k.

Ridgeon did not recognise the forward at first but commented on his manners.

He said: "I asked him if he’d ever travelled in a recovery truck before.

"Of course he hadn’t but I told him it’s just like a Bentley.

"Mo was very polite and I recovered him home.

"When we got there, he went to get his youngest daughter to show her the car being unloaded."

The pair chatted about Liverpool's maiden Premier League title win during the journey together last Tuesday.

And Salah made a bold prediction just days before kicking off the new campaign with a 4-3 victory over Leeds.

Ridgeon added: “I said it was a shame that Liverpool couldn’t celebrate with the fans this year, but he assured me they will win again next year.”

The AA’s president Edmund King tweeted a photo of the star being recovered and said: “Mo Salah’s breakdown experience obviously didn’t affect him on the pitch as he went on to score a hat-trick last weekend.

"My only regret is that I didn’t have him as captain in my La LigAA fantasy football team.”
