Khabib Nurmagomedov: I admire Mohamed Salah
Khabib became an icon all around the world after defeating Irish mixed martial artist Conor McGregor becoming the first Russian and the first Muslim to win an Ultimate Fighting Championship ‘UFC’ title.
On his first visit to the United Arab Emirates capital Abu Dhabi, Khabib told daily newspaper Al Ittihad that he follows Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah and thinks highly of him.
“I never met him before but I follow him, he is a great player and we need more people like him to reflect our ethics and present us properly to the rest of the world,” the fighter told Al Ittihad newspaper.
“He made a name of himself because he is disciplined. I feel that Allah is by his side. The new generations need those who are like Mohamed Salah to learn more about how you can be modest, no matter how famous and innovative you are.
“He’s an icon that we should take care of and help reach more success. I admire him and admire the ethics he is spreading every day in Europe.”
