  MUHAMMAD SALAH AS A GREAT FOOTBALLER

Mohamed Salah is one of the most prolific forwards in European football and a Champions League and Premier League winner with Liverpool.

The Egyptian has been an unstoppable scorer since joining the Reds from AS Roma in the summer of 2017, following up an historic 44-goal debut season with another 27 strikes in his second campaign at Anfield after he had signed a new contract with the club in the summer of 2018.

That latter tally included one in the Champions League final victory over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid in June 2019, Salah smashing home a second-minute penalty en route to a 2-0 win for Jürgen Klopp’s side.

Success at Estadio Metropolitano provided fitting redemption for the No.11, who was forced off with injury when Liverpool lost the previous year’s showpiece against Real Madrid.

In 2019-20, Salah topped the team’s scoring charts with 23 strikes in all competitions as he helped the club lift their first FIFA Club World Cup and Premier League titles and, in October 2020, a typically-prolific start to the 2020-21 season saw him become the 17th player in Liverpool FC history to reach the landmark of 100 goals for the club.

In the latter stages of the 2020-21 campaign, Salah reached the landmark of 200 appearances for the club in a 4-2 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. Typically, he marked the occasion with a goal – his 30th of the season and 124th for the Reds overall.

A talisman for his country, Salah quickly became a fan favourite at Anfield and formed part of a fearsome attacking trio with Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Mohamed Salah is an Egyptian football player of global fame.

International Player: Salah started his career in the Egyptian Premier League in 2010 before moving to Switzerland, UK, Italy and then UK again. Salah enjoyed the most successful season of his career with Liverpool FC in 2017/18. He broke many records and won many accolades. He also helped Egypt qualify for the World Cup. The 2018/19 season saw more success with Liverpool FC being runners-up in the English Premier League, and crowned 2019 European Champions and World Club Champions. The 2019/20 season saw the end of a 30 year wait for Liverpool to become champions of the English league again.

Popularity: His affable nature and polite manners have won him many fans across the globe, and none more so than in his native country of Egypt where he has donated to various charitable causes. In the March 2018 Egyptian Presidential elections, over a million people struck out the two names vying for the presidency and inserted Mohamed Salah’s name, making him an unofficial runner up in the election. His down to earth nature has shown itself in chance meetings with fans and acts of kindness towards those in need. He has over 72 million followers on social media and now has a wax model in Madame Tussauds.

Singing in the Terraces: His footballing exploits during his time at Liverpool FC have had the unprecedented effect of football fans singing positive songs about Muslims.”If he’s good enough for you, he’s good enough for me. If he scores another few, then I’ll be Muslim too. Sitting in the mosque, that’s where I wanna be! Mo Salah-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la.”
