Salah's boots set to be exhibited in British museum

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah will be honoured with his own exhibit in the British Museum's Egyptian collection

The Egyptian exhibition at the museum was launched in 2016 and Salah's boots are the first of a number of different items which will be put in there over the next few weeks.

The PFA Player of the Year Mohamed Salah had his boots displayed in the British Museum on Thursday alongside objects from ancient Egypt.

Salah has also attained national-treasure status in Egypt after his late penalty in a 2-1 win over DR Congo secured his country's qualification to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

With Real Madrid and Liverpool set to meet in the UEFA Champions League final next weekend, it has now been claimed that Brazilian fullback Marcelo is petrified of coming up against African superstar Mohamed Salah. They will be next to footwear from ancient Egypt and a selection of gold pharaonic jewellery.

Neal Spencer, keeper of the Egypt exhibit said: "This acquisition brings the British Museum's world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date".

"This acquisition builds on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of day-to-day life in 20th and 21st century Egypt".

Salah has scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season, and will get the chance to add to that tally when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26.

Salah scored 32 Premier League goals in the 2017/18 season, two more than Tottenham Hotspur's Harry Kane.
