Early life

June 15, 1992 saw the birth of a superstar named Mohamed Salah.

He was born in his hometown of Nagrig, Gharbia in Egypt, North Africa, into a loving and caring middle-class family. He was a devout Muslim.

Mohamed Salah grew up with a love for the game of football. He would skip school, his homework, and sometimes dinner to play or watch football.

Unfortunately, his passion for football was also part of the reason why he failed in his studies.

His mother never supported his decision to become a football player because she always wanted him to become a mechanical engineer.

However, that did not happen because the young man was too passionate about football.

On the contrary, his father, Salah Ghaly, supported his development as a footballer and always taught him the importance of four hours of training every day.

Mo Salah has an older brother named Nasr Salah.


Research on Mohamed Salah shows that he was a slow learner in school.

This football lover could not balance his love for football and his studies, so his academic results kept declining.

However, despite his poor academic performance, his parents still believed in his academic path and made sure he studied hard until he graduated.

Unfortunately, details about the name of the school he attended are currently unknown, but it is true that the Egyptian graduated from it.


Growing up, Mohamed Salah had a passion for football and played with his friends and neighbors. At first, he played just for fun until he was approached by a local club called El Mokawloon, located in Cairo, the capital of Egypt.

The club is far from home, but Salah is always determined to attend training sessions when called upon, plus he has to take five buses to get to the academy.

His determination and focus on football was rewarded with his first call-up to the Egypt national team in May 2010. At that time, he was just 18 years old.

Mohamed Salah was not a regular at international level for the first few years until his form improved.

His career suffered when the shortcomings shut down the Egyptian top flight for a time after the Port Stadium disaster threatened to stop him from continuing. However, fortunes then smiled on him when FC Basel, a club based in Switzerland, offered him a way out to a better league.

Mohamed Salah committed his future to Basel by signing a four-year contract in 2012, making his UEFA Champions League debut and leading his new side to the semi-finals of that year’s tournament. He also played a key role in the team’s impressive performance in the Swiss Cup, where they reached the final and ultimately lost.

However, Mohamed Salah won the domestic cup, the “Uhran Cup”, the following season.

He attracted the attention of London club Chelsea FC after an excellent performance against them in the two-legged UEFA Champions League tie. Chelsea immediately signed the Egyptian in 2014.

He made his debut for the west London club in a Premier League match against Newcastle United before scoring his first league goal against Arsenal in March of that season. However, the threat to his top-flight career came when the Egyptian was asked to return to Egypt to complete his compulsory military service.

Fortunately, Mohamed Salah overcame his fears and after a fruitful meeting with the Egyptian prime minister, the footballer was exempted from attending training.

In 2015, he was loaned to Italian club Fiorentina before moving to Serie A club AS Roma on a permanent deal in 2016.

After playing two seasons at the Italian club, Mohamed Salah emerged as a top player in Europe and globally, which earned him a successful move to European giants Liverpool in 2017 for a record fee of £50 million.

Mohamed Salah enjoyed a remarkable success at Liverpool, scoring his first hat-trick against Watford in a 5-0 thrashing. He scored four stunning goals on that creditable day. By the end of the season, he was Liverpool’s top scorer, netting a record 36 goals in all competitions.

Mohamed Salah’s career has seen him represent his country of birth at the U-20 and U-23 levels, making 11 appearances. He then represented Egypt at the senior level at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Russia, leading his team to the final group stage.

In 2017, he single-handedly led Egypt to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), becoming the top scorer and being included in the CAF squad of the tournament.

Mohamed Salah won the prestigious UEFA Champions League with Liverpool in 2019 and was also awarded the African Player of the Year award.

Mohamed Salah has an average height of 173cm, weighs 71kg and has black hair.

His eyes are dark brown with a hairy face and body. Despite being a devout Muslim, Mo Salah still celebrates Christmas with his family with a Christmas tree and gifts.

This was widely criticized by Muslims around the world, but the Egyptians did not mind.
