Life Journey

He was born in Nagrig, Gharbia, Egypt, on June 15, 1992, to parents from a middle-class family. His parents were worried about Mohammed’s academic performance. Mohamed lost all interest in academics trying to balance football and academics, but his performance on the field was never improved. Through his childhood and adolescence, football remained his priority.

He watched football on television when he wasn’t playing. He idolized some Arabic players in his early years. Salah’s parents wanted him to have a conventional career, but despite their wishes, he remained absorbed entirely in football.

Mohamed Salah played football for fun at first, but then he became serious about his football career when he joined a local youth club in Cairo called El Mokawloon. Although his training camp was far from his hometown and he had to change five buses to get there, he was able to keep focused on his studies despite his passion for the game.

He was finally accepted into the club’s senior team in May 2010, at the age of 18. As Salah’s game improved, he gradually became a regular forward in the team. A number of Egyptian Premier League players became uncertain of their futures after the league’s closure in 2012.

Mohamed Salah is a devoted Muslim and performs sujood after every goal he achieves. Salah’s fans have said they will convert to Islam if he keeps scoring goals. Salah married Maggi in 2012 and they have a daughter, Makka. Mecca, the holy city of the Muslims, is the name of the child born in London.
