Known throughout the world as Mohamed Salah, the superstar was born on June 15, 1992.
He was born to regular folks in the city of Nagrig, Gharbia, Egypt, North Africa. He’s a devout follower of Islam.
A lifelong fan of the round leather game, Mohamed Salah grew up idolizing the sport’s greats. In order to play football or watch games, he would regularly miss lessons, fail to complete his homework, and even forego eating dinner.
His dedication to football was admirable, but it also contributed to his scholastic decline.
His mom had always hoped he’d go into mechanical engineering, therefore she was never on board with his choice to be a football player. Unfortunately, the little boy was too invested in football for that to happen.
On the other hand, Salah Ghaly’s father encouraged his son’s football career and stressed the value of putting in at least four hours of practice each day. Mo Salah’s sibling is a football player named Nasr Salah.
After looking into his academic history, it becomes clear that he was a slacker. The football fan’s schoolwork kept getting worse because he couldn’t find a way to balance his love of the sport with his schoolwork.
His parents, though, saw potential in him and made sure he worked hard all the way through college.
Even though we don’t know the name of the school the Egyptian went to, the fact that he graduated still stands.
Mohamed Salah playing for Liverpool
When he was little, he enjoyed playing football with his pals and neighbors. At first, he only played for enjoyment, but eventually, a club in Cairo, Egypt’s bustling city, approached him about playing professionally.
In spite of having to take five buses to go to the academy from the club, Salah never missed a training session despite the distance between his home and the facility.
In May of 2010, his hard work and dedication to football earned him a spot on the Egyptian national team. He was only eighteen years old at the time.
Before he got better at football, he was sometimes on the Egyptian national team.
Unfortunately for him, his career took a hit when the Egyptian Premier League was temporarily suspended due to insufficient funding after the Port Stadium Disaster. However, luck was on his side when FC Basel, a Swiss club, provided a pathway to a higher level.
In 2012, he signed a four-year contract with Basel, where he would spend the rest of his career. That year, he also made his UEFA Champions League debut and helped lead his new team to the tournament’s semi-finals. At the Swiss Cup, the team he was on reached the finals before losing, and he played a pivotal role in it. In contrast, the following season saw him lift the Uhran Cup, a domestic trophy.
When he played against Chelsea FC in a Champions League tie, he impressed the London team so much that they signed him. In 2014, the Egyptian was an instant signing for Chelsea.
He made his Premier League debut for the west London club against Newcastle United in October, and he scored his first league goal, for the club and the league, in March of the following season, against Arsenal. But the Egyptian had to go back to Egypt to do his required military service, which ended his hot career.
Thankfully, Mohamed Salah was able to overcome his apprehension and, following a productive meeting with the Egyptian Prime Minister, was released from his training obligations.
His first stop in Italy was with Fiorentina on loan in 2015, and then in 2016 he made the permanent switch to Serie A rivals A.S. Roma.
After two years at the Italian club, Mohamed Salah proved himself to be one of the best players in Europe and the world. This led to his record-breaking move to Liverpool, which is one of the best teams in Europe.
As an example of his success at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah scored a triple hat trick in a 5-0 rout of lowly Watford. On that religious day, he netted four spectacular goals. He finished the season as Liverpool’s all-time leading scorer with 36 goals in all competitions.
In his professional career, Mohamed Salah has made 11 appearances for the Under-20 and Under-23 national teams of his country of origin. After that, he took the field for Egypt’s senior national team at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where he helped lead his squad deep into the tournament.
In 2017, he was the sole reason Egypt reached the final of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON), scoring the tournament’s most goals and earning a spot on the Confederation of African Football’s (CAF) best eleven.
In 2019, Mohamed Salah led Liverpool to a UEFA Champions League title and was named both the best player in Africa and the world’s best player in the sport.
