Sunday Times profiles Mohamed Salah

The Sunday Times’ (paywall) football correspondent Jonathan Northcroft profiled Egypt’s “jewel of The Nile,” footballer Mohamed Salah. “Those who know Salah say he is two things: incredibly generous and quietly, wickedly humorous… He avoids interviews but speaks through actions. In his rural home region he’s building a school and paid for an ambulance service and several hospital incubation units… He’s a kid from a small town who played football with a kora sharab (a ball made from socks).” The profile comes as Salah continued his tear in the English Premier League by tallying his league high 14th goal against Bournemouth, according to the Washington Post. The goal makes his 20th in all competitions this season and makes him the first Liverpool player to hit that mark since Ian Rush back in 1986.
