Don’t get me wrong, very nice and very classy...

But fuck me, we all should be avoiding unnecessary interactions, with people we don’t know, right now and certainly wouldn’t be getting up close and personal with homeless guys. The last thing we need right now, is Mo getting sick.

There's something distasteful about giving a homeless person a few bob while standing next to a car that would buy a house with change left over.

I know Mohamed isn't burning fifty pound notes in his face but the stark contrast between rich and poor doesn't sit right.

He’s better than all of us.

Quote:
The opening of a new ambulance center, donated by the footballer to the village, was announced this week by Tarek Rahmy, mayor of Gharbia.

Salah’s father, Haj Salah Ghaly, was present at the announcement, along with Dr. Magdy Awad, head of Gharbia’s ambulance institute, and Dr. Abdel Naser Hemeida, Gharbia’s health ministry representative.

The ambulance center, which reportedly cost 600,000 Egyptian pounds ($37,200), will serve 30,000 people in the village.

Salah does not forget his roots, something he proves time and again through his actions. The ambulance center is only the latest act of charity in a long list of good deeds by the Egyptian superstar.

In Nagrig, girls had to travel long distances to receive an education. So, in 2018, Salah financed the building of a girls’ school in the village. He also bought land to donate to Gharbia, which will be used to build a sewage treatment plant, guaranteeing clean water in the region.

The Liverpool winger previously bought medical equipment for his village and also set up a charity foundation to supply the needy on a monthly basis.

He helped his old school set up a football pitch and gym so students could enjoy proper facilities to practice sports and lead a healthy lifestyle.

Most recently, Salah donated food to the city of Basyoun during the COVID-19 pandemic.

His charity also reaches beyond his hometown. He helped Egypt by making a 5 million Egyptian pound donation to the “Tahya Masr Fund” in 2016. Last year Salah donated more than 50 million Egyptian pounds to the National Cancer Institute.

The charity institution also provides a monthly allowance to around 450 families and food donations, where he personally checks on the donations regularly.

After the terrorist attack that happened back in 2019 near the institute, where a vehicle loaded with explosives caused 20 deaths and 50 injuries, Salah donated 2.5 million to the institute to help restore its facilities.

57357 Hospital specializing in children’s cancer has received a generous 12 million from Salah to help equip the hospital with more updated, sophisticated medical equipment.

All the previously mentioned initiatives are extremely considerate, yet this kind of activity is maybe the cutest! Not just that he cares for the wellbeing of the people surrounding him, but he has a thing for animals as well. Before gaining fame, he used to carry food all the way from his home to his local club at Bassioun village, just so he can feed newly born puppies.. so wholesome!

We can say with huge confidence that the king of charity, Mo Salah, hasn’t only been a goal-scoring marvel in football matches, but in life as well. His charitable initiatives are legendary and can never be discussed in a single article.

Salah isn’t just a football player but a public figure with a huge influence. He’s undoubtedly the epitome of generosity and kindness, and not getting carried away by fame or wealth but stayed grounded with millions of people looking up to him.

Salah has the nickname “the happiness maker” for a reason. While his actions on the pitch inspire, those off the field matter just as much.

Distasteful. Unsettling.

That's an odd interpretation of the story FB.

I'd like to say I sort of see your point, the bigger picture etc, but your defence of 'at least he's not burning £50 notes", definitely insinuates that Mo has done something wrong in this story.

Like I say, odd.

Sorry, I guess I'm just commenting based on the image by itself, the contrast between an extreme luxury car and a homeless person.

I'm no way do I think this reflects badly on Salah btw.

Distasteful wasn't the right word to use.

That's fair enough on the actual image itself, but your post read like it was directed at Mo.

Yeah, if he even once doesnt pass that cancels all of those out. (the whole, 'you shag one sheep' analogy).

Some astonishing passing there, and a few that dont end in the goals the pass deserves.

When you look at how hard going it has been for Werner and Havertz to get League goals for Chelsea, or Pepe at Arsenal you realise how spoilt we have been with Mane and Salah. Both started scoring bucket loads of goals for us instantly.

This got missed in all the drama. 100 goals already (159 games). Looking very sharp this season. 6 in 5.

Few days old, but still worth posting. I'm amazed that most times I dip into a match thread, Mo is getting quite a bit of criticism. Wasn't great first half against SU, but for me this is his best year since his first.

I see it mentioned a few times that his goals are masking his 'poor play'. Baffling. It seems the opposite is true, that unless he scores he's not seen as contributing.

Anyway...

“Mo is a gifted finisher, his imagination and intuition in these moments are brilliant,” Liverpool assistant manager Pep Lijnders tells The Athletic.

“The way he can keep the ball in the hardest situations and find a way to come out and score is what identifies him. Many players have this, but not many have this consistently — then you are part of the world’s best. Because it’s all about the mentality to ‘never give less’.”

In the turbulent aftermath of Saturday’s Merseyside derby, all thoughts surrounded the extent of Virgil van Dijk’s knee injury. Meanwhile, one significant landmark seemed to almost be forgotten about. That moment was Mohamed Salah’s 100th goal for Liverpool, which arrived in scintillating fashion, an instinctive first-time finish from the edge of the box nestled in the bottom corner.

Salah had reached his century of goals in just 159 games — only Roger Hunt (144) and Jack Parkinson (153) in club history have got there quicker.

“But for me even bigger than the achievement of scoring these 100 goals is his everyday presence in our club; his character is special, a true example,” Ljinders adds. “This is what makes Mo such a great player and an example. There is no bigger compliment in life, I would say. The best ones stay humble, the best ones are true examples.

“He invests a lot of time in his preparations, you see him grow as a professional, he treats his body well. His ambitions are high, but his attitude in training is higher. If there is one secret in life, that would be the one. He is true to himself, has this true peace of mind and is always ready to help others. I still believe that what you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a player.”

Liverpool fans have had to wait 12 years for another goalscoring centurion, with Steven Gerrard the last player to achieve the feat in 2008. Those supporters would have loved to celebrate that moment in the home of their rivals.

What makes Salah’s 100 goals so interesting is where he scores his goals — very few from inside the six-yard box and very few from outside the penalty area.

So this piece is about the space in between those two.

Or as The Athletic is dubbing it: The Salah Zone.

For all of his work dribbling and driving down the right flank, it is inside the penalty area where Salah finds most joy.

Ninety-three of his 100 Liverpool goals have been scored from inside the penalty area, as you can see from the graphic below. For comparison, 85 of Harry Kane’s first 100 for Tottenham Hotspur were from within the 18-yard box.


The green dots are the goals scored in The Salah Zone

The remaining seven include the memorable long-range goal against Manchester City in January 2018 after an error by goalkeeper Ederson, the stunning strike against former club Chelsea in April 2019 and the outrageous goal against RB Salzburg which was scored from the most acute angle in the Champions League last December. Remarkably, he scored that one with his right foot (only 16 of his goals have been scored with it, while 80 have been put away with his left).

Among remarkable efforts against Watford, Everton, Tottenham, Roma, Manchester City and Napoli — to name just a few — it is his goal against Chelsea which stands out to many.

When asked by The Athletic which Salah goal was their number one, Liverpool legends John Barnes and John Aldridge both chose it.

“I think the one against Chelsea, when he came in on his left foot and put it in the top corner, that’s probably my favourite,” Barnes reveals. “But I don’t pay attention to great goals, as anyone will tell you. You would rather score 500 off your knee rather than 10 great goals or 100 great goals. He has scored great goals, but he’s also scored tap-ins.”

Barnes is right, along with the spectacular, Salah has scored his fair share of gimmes. And inside the penalty area is where his magic truly happens.

There is one channel in particular where defenders and goalkeepers struggle to contain him. It is the space between the six-yard box and the edge of the penalty area. This is where Salah is at his most prolific. The Salah Zone is where 80 of his 100 goals have been scored from.

What makes the Egyptian so deadly from this part of the pitch? Barnes thinks it is a lot to do with a “team rhythm” as much as it is to do with him being an outstanding technician.

“First of all (it is) because Roberto Firmino vacates that area to allow Salah and (Sadio) Mane to get into those areas,” he explains. “As much as Salah is playing wide, Firmino allows him to come infield to get into those positions. If Ian Rush was playing with Salah, Salah wouldn’t score that many goals. Rush would, and Salah would create a lot for him and most of Salah’s goals would be coming from outside the box or from wide areas.”

Lijnders has also previously spoken about this topic. “Mo has the ability to create from the inside,” he said last season. “To have him in the last line as high as we can, with the speed he has, the goal threat he has, it makes it easier for us to create a freer role for Bobby (Firmino).”

Salah has become much more than a conventional winger. At times, Jurgen Klopp has moved him into a central role. “Mo is young enough to involve a lot more things in his style of play. It’s not just speed, it’s not just finishing; it’s between the lines, it’s keeping the ball,” Klopp has said.

They worked extensively at Melwood on him dropping off into space and linking play. That’s paid off with 41 Liverpool assists. That ought to silence anyone attempting to label him greedy. At the end of last season, Salah was determined to secure his third Premier League Golden Boot having also won or shared the award in his two previous Liverpool campaigns — which some labelled ‘selfish’.

“Of course I want the Golden Boot but the team trophies come first, especially the Premier League,” Salah said. “It’s not just my job to score. It’s about assists, playing with the midfield and defending, too.”

Aldridge thinks Salah has started this season like any top forward should, focused on scoring more goals than anyone else. “He looks mean. From the first game of the season, he looks intent on winning the Golden Boot,” the former Liverpool striker says. “He’s already won two. You can tell he wants that.”

However, Barnes thinks it is Salah’s “selflessness” that is his greatest attribute.

“He is a great individual but understands that the team is the most important thing,” he says. “So he works hard for the team off the ball and he has enough respect to do what is right for the team as much as it is right for himself as well. A lot of superstar players think, ‘What is right for me, because I want to do this’, but Salah doesn’t.”

Echoing Barnes’ message, Lijnders tells The Athletic: “In the most influential games, he was everywhere to be found. He is so much more than ‘a striker’ for us. Our game stimulates this development and forces this way because everyone is responsible for everything.

“He becomes, more and more, ‘a playmaker’. But the most valuable characteristic of stars is that they know that the team is what makes us all reach these highs.”

As well as doing what is right for his team, Salah’s positional awareness has to be praised.

Looking back at his century of goals, there are at least 10 where he has scored from a rebound or when a goalkeeper has parried the ball into his path.

“That is what centre-forwards do. You follow the ball in,” Barnes says. “He does have that, but he also understands when people are going to shoot, how they are going to shoot, when they are going to cross, where they are going to cross.

“His relationship with Trent Alexander-Arnold or his relationship with Andy Robertson, when he knows he’s going to cross to the far post — this is understanding that they work on in training every day. This doesn’t happen because individual players have got that instinct. Yes, you do (have that instinct) but you also have to understand it is the way the team plays and how Jurgen Klopp trains the team. They know exactly what is going to happen and when it is going to happen.”

A lot of the joy the 28-year-old finds in The Salah Zone stems not only from being encouraged to enter the penalty area by Liverpool’s style of play, and in particular Firmino’s movement, but also from the crosses being played into that space by full-backs Alexander-Arnold and Robertson.

The duo will often vary their deliveries. Sometimes they look to hit what Robertson terms “the corridor of uncertainty” between the goalkeeper and the back line, for the forwards to attack. Other times, they pull the ball back from close to the byline and that’s where Salah’s intelligent movement comes to the fore as he is able to find pockets of space in a crowded box.

Robertson has eight assists to Salah while Alexander-Arnold has assisted him six times, meaning the Egyptian tends to have slightly more joy when the ball is whipped in from further away on the left than he does with it coming from the right. This gives him more time to read the game and position himself accordingly.

He is always there to pick up any knockdowns — as Barnes references. He’s like a magnet to the ball in a similar way to Luis Suarez was during his Anfield stint. Salah can read where the ball is going to be before it gets there. He always seems two or three steps ahead and the positioning and pressing of his team-mates also contributes to his overall success when bearing down on goal. Salah can also produce a variety of finishes too, whether it be after a sweeping counter-attack or getting on the end of a cross.

He is adept at darting inside from the right wing and finding space and ultimately benefits from the quality of the deliveries from Liverpool’s full-backs. Also, as mentioned, plenty of these goals come from counter-attacks where the neat interplay between Salah, Mane and Firmino rips teams apart.

As well as those incisive attacks, there are the runs in behind a high defensive line when he’s often picked out with a pinpoint pass. When this happens, his pace takes him clear. Salah is so quick that rather taking shots on early, he backs himself to dart away from the last man and tends to wait until he’s 10 to 14 yards out before pulling the trigger.

What is most striking about the goals he’s scored from The Salah Zone is the sheer variety of them.

It’s not the case that he waits around in that kind of area. What makes Salah so difficult to defend against is that he’s always on the move. And when that movement comes when he has the ball he’s difficult to dispossess, particularly with the support he has in attack. Even on the flanks, he has Alexander-Arnold constantly in support. Firmino also comes across, as will bodies from the midfield, be it Jordan Henderson or Georginio Wijnaldum. He’s never short of a one-two with a team-mate.

As highlighted, Salah has scored just seven goals from distance. He rarely takes on shots from outside the penalty area because Liverpool attack in such high numbers that there are usually much better options around him. When the opportunity does arise though, as it did against City in 2018 or Chelsea the following year, the instinctive striker will shoot from range.

The March 2018 home game against Watford saw his trickery and balance come to the fore.

Of the four goals he scored in a 5-0 hammering, he was constantly rolling defenders and leaving them on the ground before nonchalantly poking the ball into the net.

On that St Patrick’s Day, two of his four goals came from inside The Salah Zone. The other two were scored on the very edge of the six-yard box, which is a rarity for Salah.

Just 13 of his 100 goals have been scored from inside the six-yard box. But Liverpool’s style and also Salah’s positional play is the likely reason he doesn’t score more from so close in.

The full-backs tend to cut the ball back into The Salah Zone from the byline, rather than firing passes across the face of goal.

One more goal and Salah will surpass Kevin Keegan’s Liverpool tally, nine more and he will overtake Barnes. Another 19 and he will have scored more times for the club than Anfield icon Ian St John.

Aldridge thinks the four trophies he’s helped win and his century of goals already stand Salah in good stead on the list of Liverpool legends, but his place in the club’s pantheon of greats will only be determined after he leaves — and a lot depends on how long he stays for.

“Mo’s right up there,” says Aldridge, who scored 63 goals for the club. “At the end of your Liverpool career, you’ve got to look at it then and assess it then. There are so many players, like Roger Hunt, Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush and Robbie Fowler, who played for the club for a very long time and are still adored. It’s about loyalty as well as winning trophies.

“Players like (Fernando) Torres and Suarez damaged their legacy by walking away. If Mo stays put and gives us the rest of his best years then he’s absolutely got to be up there.”

Barnes warns: “Salah scoring that amount of goals, that will be even more significant if he hopefully stays on at Liverpool and scores another 100. So while it is a big achievement, if he doesn’t stay to continue that… I suppose Liverpool fans have forgotten about Suarez and Torres to a certain extent because of the manner in which they left. I am hoping for that not to happen to Salah.”

Salah’s 100 goals — along with his personal awards and Liverpool’s silverware that saw them crowned domestic, European and world champions — will go down in history. But the challenge of cementing his legacy at the club is still ongoing.

The fans will hope he can top Gerrard’s 186 and become only the fifth Liverpool player to reach 200 goals.

He doesn’t turn 29 until next summer, so could light up Anfield for another five years and help turn the success of recent seasons into a true golden era.

Opponents know all about the damage he can do in The Salah Zone; stopping him is a different matter.
