After Mohamed Salah was spotted at a local gas station while wearing training gear in Liverpool, a social media video went viral. Mohamed Salah has already won hero status under Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool and has played an integral part in their success. And the Egyptian star has cemented its name further in Anfield folklore with a touching gesture.
After Salah was spotted at a local gas station while wearing training gear for Liverpool, a post on social media has gone viral, say Mirror. As he followed the strict guidelines for coronavirus, the former Chelsea forward, who is preparing for the return of the Premier League, also put on gloves and held spray for disinfection.
And the Reds hero is said to have paid for all the fuel at the station located in Liverpool’s Old Swan area, much to the delight of the locals who were spotting Salah.
The touching gesture will please Anfield’s faithful who have seen Salah become a key player since joining Roma in 2017.
Returning to action next week, on June 21 at the home of their bitter rivals Everton, Salah and his Liverpool teammates could win the club’s first Premier League title in 30 years if Manchester City slips up against Arsenal next Wednesday.
He’s in with an opportunity to win yet another Golden Boot, with the 27-year-old scoring 16 times so far this season.
Salah sits just three goals behind the current top scorer Jamie Vardy and one in second behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Indeed, ex-Chelsea midfielder Jon Obi Mikel says Salah’s rise to stardom has taken him back in the last few years.
The two players were teammates for Stamford Bridge briefly during Salah ‘s relatively disappointing spell at the club, where he only made 13 appearances in the Premier League before being loaned to Fiorentina.
After being permanently sold to Roma, Salah returned to the Premier League for Liverpool in 2017 and became one of the world’s best forwards, winning two Golden Boots and netting 91 times in 144 games for the Reds.
In an interview with OnTime Sports, Mikel reflected on Salah ‘s time at Chelsea and admitted that he had no idea how good the player could be.
“He was a young boy when Salah came to Chelsea but he had a good personality and everyone loved him. He was very disciplined, we were close friends, talking a lot and joking a lot, he was a good friend. I believed in his development but, frankly, I didn’t imagine he would achieve the quality he now has,” said Mikel.
