Football Player Mohamed Salah, “The King of Egypt”, Refuses Lucrative Gift

An historical moment happened on the 8th of October 2017: Mohamed Salah shoots Egypt in the 91st minute against Congo to the World Cup 2018 in Russia. It will be the first time since 1990 that the Pharaohs are qualified for the international tournament. Egypt won with 2-1; the Liverpudlian Salah made both goals. Since then, he’s been called “the king of Egypt”.

This resulted in an incredible atmosphere in the Borg El Arab Stadium, footages you should see!

Salah is probably the most loved and reliable Egyptian in the world right now. The attacker has made himself even more loveable by turning down a lucrative gift from Egyptian businessman Abbas: Salah was offered a luxury villa as a sign of appreciation. Instead, he asked Abbas to make a donation to Salah’s hometown, the Nagrig village in Gharbiya.

This is a true classy act from the Egyptian star, who is also shining at Liverpool. The Reds bought him last summer for 36 million euro from AS Roma.
