The former coach of Liverpool winger expressed his pride in what the Egyptian international managed to achieve so far and said that his actions are inspiring young children in Egypt.

Hamdi Nooh, who coached Mohamed Salah during his time at Arab Contractors, his boyhood club that witnessed the player’s first football steps, spoke in an interview published by UEFA Champions League about how the young Pharaoh became an example to follow in Egypt.

The 25-year-old is certainly a model to emulate after he became a star at Anfield following a stunning scoring streak in all competitions and an unexpected norm in breaking records.

“Mohamed Salah’s fame and success make Egypt happy and make every coach who has contributed, even only slightly in Mohamed’s development, very proud,” Nooh said.

With 37 goals in all competitions, Salah currently holds the same goal tally as Real Madrid’s hitman and five times Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.

“Every child in Egypt wants to be like Mohamed and their parents want their sons to be like him too,” the Arab Contractors former player and current coach added. “All players now believe that practicing and training hard will help them reach their goals.”

In addition to being a hardcore football fan, Abdelrahman is a communications enthusiast who works in marketing, advertising, content creation and PR.
