In honor of Egypt’s most beloved winger and Liverpool player, Mohamed Salah or Mo Salah, Egypt’s Ministry of Youth and Sports has announced that it will inaugurate a museum in the striker’s hometown, Gharibya governorate.

Egypt’s Youth and Sports minister, Ashraf Sobhy, reached out to Salah’s father, Salah Ghaly, where they decided to launch a ‘Mohamed Salah Sports Center’ in the town of Nagrig in Gharbiya. Sobhy was also able to get in touch with Salah reassuring him that Egypt supports his success.

According to Egypt Independent, the center will also have a museum section displaying some of Salah’s belongings including the football Salah kicked to score the second goal in Egypt’s match against the Republic of Congo (DRC) which was the goal that led to Egypt’s participation in the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Other commodities on display are shirts representing all the teams Salah played for and pictures of his trophy collection from the English League.

This is not the first time Salah was saluted by placing his belongings on display. Last summer, London’s British Museum showcased his mint green football shoes as part of the ‘Modern Egypt Exhibition’ after he was awarded the Golden Boot award and named ‘Player of the Season’ at the Premier League. Launched in 2016, the exhibition’s aim was to show the advancements of Egypt and its culture.

The Egyptian iconic striker won several awards during his career including African Player of the Year 2018, FIFA Puskás Award 2018, PFA Players’ Player of the Year 2018, FWA Footballer of the Year 2018 and BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017 to name a few.
