Born in the small village of Nagrig, Mohamed Salah is one of the most profound forwards in European Football. He is a proficient footballer who represents Liverpool and is also the Captain of the Egypt National Team. Each time he comes on screen, he surprises the spectators with his commendable speed and dribbling skills.
Our Egyptians had an innate craze for soccer. He was just 14 years old when he started building his skills. Salah used to idolize Totti and Zidane from his childhood. He commenced his professional carrier with the Egyptian club, EI Makawloon. His performance even at that age was magical. His coaches often claimed that Salah could torment his opponents. He used to take the ball from the middle of the field to the penalty area. Now, this was rare, and seemed to be God gifted, isn’t it?

His performance was impressive and therefore he continued it to the next season as well. In 2019, Liverpool won UEFA Champions League under the leadership of Salah. He started his career as a natural winger but eventually transformed into a forward. He underwent the journey of transformation smoothly and became the top scorer in the 2015/2016 season.
The 2020/2021 season witnessed his biggest achievement. He is now the 17th player to reach the landmark of 100 goals in the history of Liverpool FC. In a 4-2 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, Salah reached the landmark of 200 appearances. He selected 74 jerseys to commemorate the port named Stadium riot victim, Egypt.
