Mo Salah has been hailed as a “real-life hero” after the Liverpool forward stopped the abuse of a homeless man.
The Egyptian has scored five goals in four Premier League matches this season as he continues to star on the pitch for the Reds.
However, it is his kind nature off the pitch that is also hitting the headlines with homeless man David Craig saying that Salah intervened when he was being abused by a “group of lads” in Liverpool.
The incident was caught on CCTV with Salah giving the group a ‘ticking off’ before handing Mr Craig some money.
“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch,” Mr Craig was quoted in 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.
“Mo had seen a couple of the lads hassling me. They were calling me names, asking why I was begging and telling me to get a job.
“He saw what was happening and said something to them and then he went to the cash machine. I was more than chuffed. I’m a massive fan.
“Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes and I want to thank him.”
