No matter how underachiever Liverpool football club have been in past decade, their fans are full of inexhaustible enthusiasm who still hold a rich football culture of their glorious good old days and often turn up with amazing football chants to inspire the adored professionals.
One such name is Mohamed Salah who has taken the league by storm during his second stint in English football and has been in the form of his life despite a disappointing phase with Chelsea a few years back. Salah, who joined the Reds from AS Roma in summer for a bargain fee of £36.9 mil, has already netted 24 times and registered 9 assists in 30 games combining Premier League and the prestigious Champions League competitions. He is currently the second highest goalscorer of this season’s Premier League campaign with 18 goals and despite being an out-and-out wingman, Salah is only two goals short of hitman Harry Kane.
The 25-year-old attacker’s heroics to take Egypt in the World Cup has earned him an iconic status back in his country and the player is already being labeled as ‘The Egyptian King’ for his enormous popularity. In his first few months at Liverpool, Mo Salah has become a colossal figure among the fans and has been christened as ‘The Scouse Pharaoh’ in the social network.
Following Liverpool’s Anfield heroics against Manchester City ( that finished in a 4-3 win for the Reds who ended up City’s unbeaten domestic status), the fans from a pub near the ground took no time to find out an exquisite chant for their ‘Egyptian King‘.
The chant has been set to the tune of James’ 1990 hit Sit Down and the lyrics are like this:
Mo Salah, Mo Salah
Running down the wing
Salah la la la la la la la
Salah’s fourth goal, however, proved to be the decider in Liverpool’s triumph over mighty City and the star winger will hope to continue his dream run for the remainder of the campaign.
