What’s it about?
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.
