Jürgen Klopp: People take Mo Salah for granted

Mohamed Salah saved a homeless man from being harassed by a group of men before gifting him £100.

The Liverpool star swiftly moved to calm a potential confrontation at a petrol station near Anfield following the Reds’ 3-1 victory over Arsenal last month.

The Egypt international could be seen on CCTV stepping in before giving £100 to a stunned David Craig.

“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch," Mr Craig is quoted as saying by the Sun.

“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.”

Mr Craig insisted the group of men had been hassling him and calling him names.

But Salah then had a conversation with the men before making a trip to the cash machine to support Mr Craig.

The former labourer, 50, hailed Salah as “a real-life hero” for his intervention and help.

The player has started the season in sizzling form for Jurgen Klopp’s side, scoring five goals in five games.

After international duty with Egypt this week, Salah will be back in action with the Reds in the most highly-anticipated Merseyside derby for years.

Salah scored twice last weekend but could not stop a humiliating 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa for the Premier League champions.
