Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah is fast becoming a Liverpool legend for his demeanour in the red camp. The Kop already made catchy songs to celebrate his heroics.

These days, Salah is on a roll for his humanity off the pitch.

When Oscar Bridson, a young Liverpool fan from the Isle of Man, was given a homework to use words ending in ‘ng’, the first word he uttered was ‘king’ and he meant the new King of the Kop, Salah, also his favourite footballer. The kid included the ‘Mo Salah’ chant in his assignment and drew a sketch of the player with a crown and a pyramid.


Sarah-Marie, his mother, shared Oscar’s brilliance on Twitter and said, “Oscar took his homework to another level tonight.”

The tweet alerted Salah and after a week, he expressed interest to meet Oscar. The footballer also discovered that the kid had suffered illness — having three airway surgeries — so he asked the club to fund Oscar and his mother’s attendance at Anfield for the game against West Ham.

Liverpool won 4-1 and Salah added to his goal tally, making Oscar’s trip memorable.
