Mohamed Salah Named One of Time Magazine’s Most Influential People 2019

“Mo Salah is a better human being than he is a football player,” Time writes. “And he’s one of the best football players in the world."

Mohamed Salah Named One of Time Magazine’s Most Influential People 2019

Liverpool and Egypt footballing star, Mohamed Salah, has been named in Time Magazine’s prestigious annual list of the world’s 100 Most Influential People, with none other than British funnyman and presenter of HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’, John Oliver, the man tasked with paying homage to him.

“Mo Salah is a better human being than he is a football player,” Oliver writes. “And he’s one of the best football players in the world. Mo is an iconic figure for Egyptians, Scousers and Muslims the world over, and yet he always comes across as a humble, thoughtful, funny man who isn’t taking any of this too seriously.”

Salah’s stock in the fickle world of football skyrocketed on becoming the most expensive ever Egyptian player, when English Premiership team, Liverpool, secured his services for £36.9 million in the summer of 2017. His debut season in what is arguably the best football league in the world ended with him breaking several records and leading Egypt to its first World Cup since 1990.

Off the field, as Oliver rightly points out, the Nagrig-native, who started his career at Egyptian club, El Mokawloon, has become celebrated the word over and is seen as the epitome of modesty and hard-work in a sport that has been traditionally short them.
