Yup, the soccer giant fooled us all. As part of his second job–as an influencer, Mo left social media last Tuesday. His ‘cryptic’ tweet that read,  “2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real,” had all his fans thinking he’d quit social media for good. However, on Saturday Jan 26, he reactivated his accounts!

But all this for what? Wait for it………… A SOCIAL MEDIA AD!!

Apparently, Mo Salah had partnered with famous courier company, DHL, to do a social media ad. The company tweeted last week in response to Salah’s, saying “We’ve reached Mo Salah and we can connect you to him.”

Soon after that, Mo Salah returned to social media with a photo o him opening a DHL box, and an interesting video commercial. It was all part of a company marketing scheme to connect fans from across the Middle East and North Africa region, as part of their global 50-year anniversary celebrations. He captioned the video in a witty replica of his previous runaway tweet– “Getting in touch, for real… 😁”

Great job! We all fell for it.

As per the video depicts, “supporters will be able to send gifts and letters for Salah after submitting photos of their gifts through a dedicated website. They are then delivered directly to him”, Express.co.uk reports. Incredible right?

We’ve reached Mo Salah and we can connect you to him,” DHL tweeted.

And for those who thought he left because of criticism or a transfer… joke’s on you 😀
