Mohamed Salah Biography
Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian professional footballer known for celebrating goals by performing the Sujood, was born on 15 June 1992 to average Egyptian parents. The footballer with the zodiac sign of Gemini is an Egyptian national and Arabic ethnicity. He showed a passion for football at a young age. However, he was not brilliant in academic subjects, which worried his middle-class parents, who were interested in finding the right balance between his passion for football and his academic subjects, but by all indications, Mohamed showed no signs of improvement in academic subjects and eventually, football became his main concern during his childhood. During his formative years, the aspiring football star was completely immersed in the game, unaffected by his parents’ desire to pursue a more conventional career.
It is well known that Mohamed watched football on television when he was not playing on the pitch. Initially, football was just a game he enjoyed until he joined a local youth club called El Mokawloon in Cairo. Although the location of his new club was so far away from where he lived that he had to take five buses to get there, Mohamed was not discouraged at all, but his passion for the game kept him going.
Finally, in 2010, at the age of 18, he was accepted into the senior national team. He was often used as a substitute in the early stages, but as his skills improved he began to play as a regular striker. Even when the Egyptian league experienced closure in 2012 and the confidence of several players was uncertain, Mohamed Salah was not deterred, signing a four-year contract with Basel in 2012 and making his first appearance at the UEFA Championship and Europa League that same year. Since then, he has played for renowned clubs such as Chelsea, Italian club Fiorentina, Roma, and Liverpool. To top it all off, he became part of the Egyptian national team and his performances for his country’s national team earned him a place in the tournament’s CAF team.
