Mohamed Salah came from a very far distance to place himself among the top footballers in the world, especially since he joined the ranks of Liverpool in the summer of 2017 from Rome, Italy.
Salah achieved with the Liverpool achievements that may not have been achieved by another Arab player in history, to culminate in a procession of struggle in European stadiums that began with his transfer from the Arab Moqaouilon club to FC Basel, Switzerland, in January 2012 for 2.5 million euros.
“Mo” became the first Reds fans’ love, and they sang his name in the stands of “Anfield”, to make the Egyptian star prove his feet more and more, and to remain permanently in the nominations for the best player in the world.
Salah also rose to be nominated for the Player of the 21st Century at the Globe Soccer Awards this year, where Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and retired Brazilian star Ronaldinho compete.
Mohamed Salah’s candidacy did not come out of nowhere, as he is the most prominent Arab and continental name this century thanks to his rapid successes with Liverpool, as well as the Egyptian national team, where his career started with the Pharaons began with the Sierra Leone match on September 3, 2011 in the qualifiers for the African nations in 2012.
Salah succeeded with all the Egyptian teams, as he participated in the 2011 World Cup for U-20 Youth in Colombia, and also contributed to the Olympic team’s qualification for the Games (London 2012) and scored 3 goals in the first round before the Egyptians came out with a three loss to Japan.
