Mohamed Salah boots to be displayed in British Museum

The PFA Player of the Year had his boots displayed in the British Museum on Thursday alongside objects from ancient Egypt.

After dominating England and winning 33 individual award, most importantly the Premier League’s award of top goalscorer, the British Museum decided to celebrate the player by displaying his boots alongside artifacts from the Pharaonic era.

Egyptologist and Keeper of ancient Egypt and Sudan in the British Museum, Neal Spencer, spoke about the new acquisition saying, “The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the UK, with a truly global impact, and build on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of daily life in 20th and 21st century Egypt’’

Mohamed Salah has conquered England and Europa breaking records all season long but his biggest test will be on May 26th in the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
