Mo Salah: A Football Fairy Tale

Mo Salah: A Football Fairy Tale


There’s certainly a fairy-tale quality to Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah’s career – and it’s a tale that could get a fresh twist in next Saturday’s Champions League final. This profile charts how Salah rose from humble origins in Egypt to recently being voted the PFA’s Player of the Year – via the odd setback.

As well as his prolific goal scoring and almost cartoonish creativity on the pitch – the scurrying gait, the ability to slot goals home from wherever he likes – Salah appears to be a gentleman and a model professional. Contributors including Steven Gerrard and Gary Lineker join the queue to sing his praises. There are plenty of goals to watch, too.


Liverpool footballer Mo Salah shot to world stardom in one season, with his goals carrying the club to the Champions League final against Real Madrid. Cameras chart his rise from humble origins in Egypt to being voted best player in England and a candidate for the Ballon d'Or prize, which is awarded to the world's top player each year. Featuring Steven Gerrard and Gary Lineker.
