Mohamed Salah museum to be built in honour of the Liverpool star's achievements


Premier League star Mohamed Salah will be honoured in a museum built by the Egyptian government. The Liverpool forward is being celebrated for his achievements in the form of the 'Mohamed Salah Sports Centre' at the Gezira Youth Centre in Cairo.

The museum will include some of the sports star's belongings, shirts representing the teams he has played for, and pictures of the star from key moments in his career. There's no denying that Mo Salah has built up quite the list of accolades already.

Having signed with Liverpool in 2017, he has broken several records already including the football club's scoring record for a debut season and was named the Premier League's 'Player of the Season' for 2017/2018 after scoring 32 goals in the 38-game season.

Not to mention he's also been awarded the Golden Boot award for the same season. Sports minister Ashraf Sobhy revealed plans to open the museum after Mo picked up the award for BBC African Player of the Year, for the second year in a row.

It's believed that plans for the museum have come into play as Mo's home nation of Egypt is proud of his career and achievements thus far. There has yet to be a date confirmed as to when the museum would likely open.  It won't be the first time that a museum has paid tribute to the star.

Although the new venture will be on a much bigger scale, last year the British Museum in London honoured the player by featuring a pair of football shoes created for him as part of an exhibition on Modern Egypt.

The unused Adidas shoes were specially moulded to the player's feet and were displayed by the museum's permanent Ancient Egypt exhibition.
