Not satisfied with saving his valiant performances on the pitch, Mo Salah recently defended a rough sleeper from a group of youths, before giving him £100.
The action came after Liverpool’s 3-1 lead over Arsenal on September 28, a game in which Egypt played 90 minutes.
The CCTV footage showed the forward driving up to the gas station in his Bentley before coming to the assistance of David Craig, who was sleeping rough around Anfield. Mr. Craig was threatened at the station forecourt by a group of yobs, but they soon left when Salah interfered.
Speaking to the Sun, the former builder admitted that he found the entire situation somewhat surreal.
“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch,” Mr Craig said.
“He heard what a group of lads were saying to me, then turned to them and said, ‘That could be you in a few years’.
“I only knew I wasn’t hallucinating when Mo incredibly handed me £100. What a complete legend.”
When he’s not been morphing into a Marvel superhero off the field, Salah has been in banging in the goals this season, registering five strikes in his opening four Premier League games. It has not all been plain sailing for the reigning champions though.
After securing victories over Leeds, Chelsea and Arsenal, the Reds were sensationally put to the sword 7-2 by an Aston Villa side that many tipped to struggle this season. Despite his team’s struggles, Salah still managed to grab a brace.
The upcoming international break will afford Liverpool some time to reflect before they return to league action against Merseyside rivals Everton on 17 September. The game is set to be the most exciting Derby in years with the Toffees currently sat top of the table with 12 points from four games.
