Mo Salah showed his class after hundreds turn up outside his house uninvited in Egypt

Mohamed Salah did not enjoy the World Cup that he would have wanted.

The 25-year-old injured his shoulder in the build-up to the tournament, forcing him to miss his side’s opener against Uruguay.

After returning to the side against Russia, it was clear he was not fully fit.

He may have started, and scored, against both Russia and Saudi Arabia, but his country fell to defeat in both games.

They exited the tournament having failed to pick up a single point. The only other team that suffered the same fortune were Panama.

Egypt fans may have been disappointed with how their nations fortunes went, but their admiration for Salah is still unwavering.

Salah’s home address was leaked online following the tournament, and hundreds of fans turned up in their droves outside.

Many footballers would see this as an annoying convenience.

Many would want the crowds to disperse as quickly as possible in wanting their own privacy.

But not Salah.

Salah has become a national icon, as well as a Liverpool icon, for his performances on the pitch and for his personality off it.

Instead of staying in his house, waiting for the crowds to clear, Salah came out and started taking selfies with fans and signing autographs.

What a guy.

As BBC journalist Shaimaa Khalil writes: “Crowds gather outside @MoSalah’s home in #Egypt after his address was leaked on Facebook . So what does he do? He comes out to greet people and sign autographs… We are not worthy of #MoSalah”

Some of those lucky enough to take photos with him posted them on Twitter.

You could perhaps forgive Salah for wanting his own privacy, especially after what he has gone through in the past few months.

It seems Salah can do no wrong; both on and off the pitch.

Salah may have been disappointed with how his World Cup went, but that did not stop him sending a classy message following their exit from the tournament.

“We want to apologise to all the Egyptian fans who came to support us here in the three matches, I know it is difficult for them, like us,” Salah said.

“I just want to say that Egypt reached the World Cup after 28 years, some players here do not have the required experience.

“Thanks to all of them and we will back again in 2022.”
