If you have been watching soccer for the last decade or so, you are likely familiar with Egyptian soccer player Mohamed Salah, often informally referred to by the soccer press and fans as “Mo.” While Salah is often known for his world-class finishing, dribbling, and speed on the soccer pitch, what is less often talked about is his excellent taste in watches.
In order to celebrate his many accomplishments, we are going to take a closer look at the life, career, and watch collection of Mohamed Salah.
Who is Mohamed Salah?
Mohamed Salah was born on June 15th, 1992 in Nagrig, Egypt. He began playing soccer in his early years and by the age of 14, he had joined the youth team of Al Mokawloon after being spotted by a local scout. By the age of 15, he would be playing for the club’s senior team after team manager Mohamed Radwan noticed the young man’s immense talent.
Mohamed Salah’s Early Soccer Career
By 2012, Salah had been signed to the Swiss soccer club Basel, who had been scouting him for quite some time, and would end up scoring his first goal in the league just a week after his debut. During the 2013-2014 season, Salah would decide to leave the Swiss soccer league and accept an offer to play for Chelsea.
Mainstream Success in Soccer
In early 2014, it was announced that Mohamed Salah would be joining Chelsea FC, making him the first player of Egyptian descent to do so. This would increase his visibility considerably and bring him to the attention of the international soccer community in a way he had not been able to achieve previously.
Despite his success during his time in Chelsea, he would only end up playing two actual years with the team, as he would spend his final season with them on loan to Roma FC. However, his tenure there would prove to be short-lived as well, as he would only play there for one season.
Signing with Liverpool
Mohamed Salah currently plays with the legendary Liverpool FC, a team of which he has been a member of since 2017, making it his longest-tenured team since he began his professional soccer career. His first year with Liverpool was a record-breaking one for Salah, including scoring 36 times during his debut season with the club. Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard would even go on to note in an interview that “we are witnessing the start of greatness.”
In 2019, Salah would go on to have his most important year professionally yet, as he would score the first goal in a 2-0 win over Tottenham to help the team win that year’s UEFA Champion’s League final. Later that year, his team would go on to win the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup, with Salah being awarded the Golden Ball award for Player of the Tournament.
The following year, he would help lead Liverpool to a Premier League Championship, and he would lift the trophy for the team after their 5-3 victory over Chelsea FC. In September of 2020, he became the first Liverpool player to score in four consecutive league openers, and only the second man in Premier League history to do so.
In 2021, Mohamed Salah would go on to score his 100th goal with the Premier League during a game against Leeds. In April of 2022, Mohamed Salah was voted England’s Men’s Footballer of the Year.
