Mo Salah’s Boots Have Been Added to the British Museum

Liverpool striker Mo Salah has somehow managed to see his season get even better this week after his football boots were added to the display at the prestigious British Museum.

The Egyptian has been in English football for less than a calendar year but has already assumed iconic status amongst the Reds supporters on Merseyside following his incredible campaign.

Salah has been voted the PFA Players’ Player of the Year following his 32 goals in 38 Premier League matches – which also helped the 25-year-old claim the European Golden Boot ahead of the likes of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

But not even Salah’s biggest fans could’ve expected his boots to be given such reverence in the British Museum, where they’ll be displayed alongside ancient Egyptian sandals in a gallery near its mummies.

Salah’s donation is apparently the first-ever football boots shown by the museum, who are aiming to highlight the efforts of a modern Egyptian hero.

With a Champions League Final and a World Cup campaign looming on the horizon, we’re willing to be Salah’s 2018 is going to get even better.
