The truth about Mohamed Salah’s muscle that sparked controversy

The prominent muscles of the Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, grabbed the spotlight in the victory of his Liverpool team against its guest Crystal Palace 3-0, in the match that brought the two teams together, on Saturday, in the fifth round of the English Premier League.

Salah’s muscles appeared remarkably when he took off his shirt, after scoring the second “Reds” goal in the match in the 78th minute, which caused him to receive a yellow card from the confrontation referee.

Pictures of Salah’s muscles received many admiring comments from thousands of Liverpool fans, on social media, who praised the player’s physical strength, and the role of his muscles in protecting the player from any fractures during match accidents.

The comments were not without wit, as the muscle received some analogies, such as bird wings, fish gills, and the fingers of someone hugging it from behind.

While some questioned the authenticity of the photo, indicating that it was modified through the “Photoshop” program, the photo is real and was taken at the “Anfield” stadium, by Paul Ellis, a photographer for Agence France-Presse.

However, the muscle shown in the picture is scientifically known as the Serratus anterior muscle or “the anterior dentate muscle”, and it connects the shoulder bones to the upper eight ribs.

The muscle is also known among athletes as the “boxer’s muscle”, because it is responsible for extending the shoulder forward around the rib cage when one person punches another.

In order for the muscle to reach this degree of clarity, as in the case of Salah, it needs strenuous exercises for the shoulder, chest and abdomen, which include lifting weights over the head with raising the arms.
