Mo Salah stops for young Liverpool fan who ran into lamppost trying to get a wave

Mohamed Salah is a hero in the eyes of the Liverpool fans and is firmly on course to become a club legend.

The Egyptian forward has exceeded all expectations since his £36.9 million move from AS Roma in June 2017.

Two years later and that fee now looks like the deal of the century.

Salah has scored 72 goals in 106 games for the Reds and won a host of individual accolades, including the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award after scoring 32 Premier League goals in his debut campaign at Anfield.

Last season he scored fewer goals – 27 in 52 games (all competitions) – but finished the campaign with a Champions League winners’ medal.

And Salah began the new season with a bang on Friday night, scoring one goal and setting up another in a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich City.

Salah comes across as an extremely likeable guy off the pitch.

Humble, modest and softly-spoken, the 27-year-old is a role model to millions of football fans around the world.

And he further endeared himself to Liverpool fans this weekend by stopping for a young supporter who suffered a nasty injury while trying to get a wave from his hero.

Tweeting Salah directly, @joecoopter93 wrote: “Thank you for coming back to check on my boys after Louis KO’d himself trying to get a wave!

“He loves you so much and the pain went away instantly when you came to give them a hug. A nose reset worth well worth it he said. You are a top man and a true gent! #EgyptianKing”

Joe added that poor Louis was “running next to the car and ran into a lamppost he didn’t see because mo was looking back.”

But he said that Louis would “do it 100 times over he’s had such a laugh showing everyone!”

Joe said Salah “turned his car around and found us in our close when his brother ran over with him hurt!”

He added: “Touch of class by him honestly”

Great stuff from Salah. What a top man.

We’re also glad to hear that Louis, who can be seen with blood coming out of his nose, wasn’t too badly hurt during the incident.

No doubt he’ll have that as his profile photo for the next 10 years.
