Salah donates 30,000 Euros to veteran Egyptian players
The Egyptian has taken the Premier League by storm following his return to England this season, and his class seems to extend off the pitch too.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has impressed everyone on the pitch this season, and he’s doing good things off it too.
Salah’s status as a national hero back home in Egypt is only partly to do with his football ability - and the fact that he scored the goal that sent his nation to their first World Cup in 28 years back in October.
The forward is also revered for what he does for his country, with the Daily Mail reporting last month about the various good deeds he does for his hometown of Nagrig - including buying gym equipment, paying for couples to get married and presenting youth football trophies.
He even insisted that a burglar who stole from his family recently should not be charged, and instead helped him find work .
And according to a report in Egypt, he’s now donated money to help veteran Egyptian footballers who may have fallen on hard times after retiring from the game.
The report from Egyptian football site King Fut cites radio host and former Zamalek player Khaled El-Ghandour’s claim that Salah has given €30,000 (£26,612) to the Association of Veteran Egyptian Players.
The report claims that some of the families of the ex-players receive a monthly wage of just 400 Egyptian pounds, or £16.65.
Formerly of Chelsea, Salah has scored 21 goals in 28 Reds appearances since joining from Roma in the summer, and is behind only Harry Kane in the race for the Premier League’s Golden Boot with 15 league strikes.
