Mo Salah’s life to be taught in primary, secondary schools across Egypt

In Summary

  • Known as the ‘Egyptian King’ Mo Salah is highly respected in his home country.

Students in Egypt are set to study Liverpool star Mohamed Salah in both primary and secondary schools across the country from next year.

Aside from the usual mathematics, sciences and languages, Mo Salah‘s accomplishments on and off the pitch will now be printed in textbooks and taught in schools.

The 29-year-old is revered in the North African country to such an extent that they want the younger generations to study him as a role model in the future.

After signing for Liverpool in 2017, Salah has become one of the stars of world football and has won the African player of the year award twice, in 2017 and 2018.

Older kids in secondary will learn about the Egyptian’s contributions off the pitch including his charitable donations while those in primary school will explore his football exploits for both club and country.

“Salah’s desire to help others is because he wants to give young people a chance to succeed. He is a role model to millions of Egyptians who give him the nickname ‘the happiness maker’,” reads an excerpt from one textbook.

The Anfield hero, nicknamed ‘The Egyptian King’, has helped Liverpool win the Champions League and the Premier League, during a prolific spell that has seen him score an incredible 140 goals for the club.
