Mohamed Salah’s statue was revealed in Egypt. The statue shows Salah in celebration with arms spread. However, the Liverpool forward’s fans found the sculpture funny. And sow did we!. The statue at display at the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh is created by Mai Abdel Allah. The statue is dedicated to Salah’s dedication and determination.
The statue is now being compared with Cristiano Ronaldo’s infamous sculpture which was revealed last year. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner had a statue of his face made, and it made to the headlines for being ‘ugly’. The statue was later replaced with a new one.
