Egypt's Mohamed Salah created a goal in Fiorentina's final game of the season, sustained an injury and greeted the fans on his way out in what could be his last game for the Italian side.

The 22-year-old helped Fiorentina open the scoring against Chievo Verona after 12 minutes of Sunday's Serie A game when he bamboozled his challenger down the left and cut the ball back to Josip Ilicic to fire home from inside the area.

He was substituted on 28 minutes though after picking up an injury, making way for Federico Bernardeschi.

Salah greeted the home fans on his way to the dugout, before moving around the pitch to a standing ovation.

The match against Chievo could mark his last appearance with Fiorentina, whom he joined on a six-month loan deal from English Premier League side Chelsea last January.

He has quickly become a fan favourite in Florence, scoring nine goals in 26 appearances in all competitions and producing a string of impressive displays.

Recent reports suggested that Fiorentina might be able to keep hold of him next season but there has been no official confirmation from the club.
