Mohamed Salah was recently crowned African Gold Balloon for the second year in a row. Long before, he had won the top scorer trophy for the 2017/2018 season in England. All these titles have made him one of the most loved and admired players in all of Egypt. To this end, the Egyptian government has kindly paid tribute to his star.
To do this, the government plans to build a museum in his honor, as stated by Ashraf Sobhy, Minister of Sports:
” The surprise I was preparing for Salah is the construction of a museum bearing his name at the Gezira Youth Center. The player achieves excellent performances with Liverpool (Premier League) and the national team of Egypt. We are all proud of his accomplishments. I hope that winning the title of this year’s best player in Africa at the CAF Awards 2018 will be a major asset to enable him to continue his success and deliver more performances with his club as well as with the national team at the next Africa Cup of Nations to be held in Egypt, “said the Egyptian Sports Minister.
This season, Salah has scored 17 goals for Liverpool, including 14 in the league. This greatly helped the Reds to lead the Premier League at this stage with 57 points. Pep Guardiola’s men are second with 50 units, but played one game less than the Kops.
As a reminder, since Mohamed Salah joined the Premier League with Liverpool in 2017, the native of Nagrig has become one of the most appreciated players in the world. In his first season with The Reds , he broke several records, including the fastest player in Liverpool history to reach the 40-goal mark in the Premier League.
