Mo Salah plays keepy-uppies with disabled football fan ahead of UEFA Super Cup


Mohamed Salah has developed into a phenomenal footballer since joining Liverpool in 2017.

Seventy-two goals in 106 appearances (so far) is an incredible return, with 32 of those coming in a record-breaking first Premier League season with the Reds.

Salah bagged another 22 goals in the league last campaign to win a second-successive Golden Boot and he's already opened his account for 2019/20.

And that's just in the Premier League. The Egyptian has led Liverpool to two out of two Champions League finals and he inspired victory at the second time of asking against Tottenham.

In such a short space of time Salah has established himself as a Liverpool legend and cemented a place in their history books.

It's not just his skills as a footballer that Salah is renowned for, though.

The 27-year-old is an amazing human being away from the football pitch and back in April he was named as one of the world's 100 most influential people.

Salah is an advocate for gender equality and does a lot for charity which, according to comedian and lifelong Liverpool fan John Oliver, makes him a "better human being than he is a football player".

"Mo Salah is a better human being than he is a football player," wrote Oliver for Time Magazine. "And he's one of the best football players in the world.

"You'd be hard-pressed to find a professional athlete in any sport less affected by their success or status than Mo, which is incredible because I can't imagine the kind of pressure that comes with the intensity of adoration he receives.

"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 and Liverpool take on Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night and ahead of the match, the Egypt international took time out to make some young dreams come true.

Liverpool posted footage of Salah playing keepy-uppies with a disabled football fan who has no legs and it's amazing to watch.

Respect, Mo.

Say what you want about Salah as a footballer, but Salah as a person is an inspiration to us all.
