Mohamed Salah, who sparkles with the ball at his feet for Liverpool, demonstrated his sympathetic side in a recent video where he stepped in to stop the maltreatment of a homeless man in close to Anfield, Liverpool.
In a recorded CCTV footage of a month ago, Salah was seen pulling up to a petrol station in the city and saw a homeless man, David Craig, being harassed by a group of individuals.
The 28-year-old Egyptian mediated and cautioned the hecklers that they might one be able to day be in a comparable situation as the vagrant. He at that point proceeded to hand Craig some cash.
“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch,” Craig was quoted by The Sun. “Mo had seen a couple of the lads hassling me. They were calling me names, asking why I was begging and telling me to get a job.”
“He then turned to them and said, ‘That could be you in a few years’. I only knew I wasn’t hallucinating when Mo handed me £100. What a complete legend.”
“Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes and I want to thank him,” Craig added.
Salah is notable for his magnanimous nature as he has recently been engaged with the development of a medical centre and a school for girls in Egypt.
On the pitch, Salah has so far scored five goals in only four matches in the 2020/21 season, remembering a support for Liverpool’s 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.
