Mo Salah's Football Boots To Go On Display At The British Museum

Trophy in the bag? Real Madrid star'terrified of Mohamed Salah says Egypt legend

Mohamed Salah fever has swept Britain since his arrival with Liverpool's goal machine earning two players awards and now a pair of his boots are to sit alongside Egyptian artefacts at the British Museum.

The British Museum stated on its official Twitter account: "We've made an exciting new acquisition!"

"That's just like the British Museum", said someone in the office, "Nicking something from an Egyptian and putting it on display".

The boots will be placed in the Egyptian section, next to pharaohs, as Salah prepares to lead his national team, known as The Pharaohs, out in the World Cup.

Salah has been voted the PFA Players' Player of the Year following his 32 goals in 38 Premier League matches - which also helped the 25-year-old claim the European Golden Boot ahead of the likes of Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Neal Spencer, Keeper of Ancient Egypt & Sudan section at the British Museum stated: "The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the United Kingdom, with a truly global impact, and building on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of daily life in 20th and 21st century Egypt".

The "Egyptian Pharoah" as he is fondly called by his fans at Liverpool will now have his boots displayed in the museum's Egyptian collection.

Originally from Nagrir, in Northern Egypt, Salah has been praised for his impact both on and off the pitch this season.
