Nicknamed “The Pharaoh” and “Egyptian King” by ardent Liverpool supporters, Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah has had enjoyed a fairytale rise to world stardom in the English Premier League and the Champions League.
Now a new Channel 4 documentary takes a look back at the Liverpool striker’s journey.
Here’s everything you need to know about Mo Salah: a Football Fairy Tale.
Ahead of the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid on Saturday 26th May, Channel 4 presents a look back at the rise of Mohamed Salah (commonly referred to as ‘Mo’), the Egyptian team footballer and Liverpool forward.
His prolific goalscoring and trademark creativity on the pitch – his scurrying gait and seemingly impossible scores – have made Salah equally popular off the pitch, and a favourite amongst fans and sports pundits alike.
Salah was recently voted PFA’s Player of the Year, but his path to success has had a few bumps, as the documentary covers. Interviewees singing Salah’s praises during the documentary also include Steven Gerrard and Gary Lineker.
