Merseyside Police are currently investigating an incident involving Liverpool’s winger Mohammed Salah, according to club reports
A video online appeared to show the player sitting in traffic as some people, including children, gathered near his car before he drove off.
A Liverpool FC spokesman said: “The club, after discussion with the player, have made Merseyside Police aware of the footage and the circumstances surrounding its capture.
“We have spoken to the player also and will deal with any follow-up internally.
“Neither the club or player will be making any further comment on this matter.”
Merseyside Police said: “We have been made aware of a video believed to show a footballer using a mobile phone whilst driving.
“This has been passed to the relevant department. Thanks for letting us know.”
Salah was in fine form as he helped the Reds to a 4-0 victory against West-Ham at Anfield. Liverpool travel to Selhurst Park for their next game against Crystal Palace on Monday.
