Egypt’s footballer and liverpool star player, Mohamed Salah is facing an hate statement and this is pointing to him that he can not be liked by everyone around him.
The player has been showing sensational form since joining Liverpool from AS Roma last summer, Salah was the recent target of an op-ed in Egyptian state-run newspaper Al-Ahram.
Egyptian columnist Salah Montaser started a social media firestorm when he stated that the Liverpool star should shave his beard as it “puts him in one basket with extremists…. and terrorists.”
The statement which did not go down well with many Egyptians have since turned to social media to defend their idol, slamming the opinion as nonsense.
Salah is the Premier League’s joint-top scorer, with Tottenham’s Harry Kane, on 24 goals, and enjoys huge celebrity status in his native Egypt, which is struggling to combat an Islamic State-led insurgency.
