Mohamed Salah 2018

’s popularity in is waxing so strong that a huge percentage of the electorate want the Liverpool star man to become the country’s president.

The former Chelsea forward has been in blistering form for Liverpool in 2017-18, scoring 36 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions since joining last summer.

Mohamed has also racked up 33 goals in 55 caps for Egypt, and scored the last-minute penalty that secured Egypt’s qualification for the 2018 World Cup, in a 2-1 win over Congo.

It is perhaps unsurprising, then, that a number of voters exercised their franchise to cancel out the two names on the ballot – Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, the winner, and Moussa Mustafa Moussa – in order to write Salah’s!

Mr Al-Sisi won 92 per cent of the vote, per The Economist, but more one million people spoiled their ballots, with many exercising their democratic right to protest by scribbling Salah’s name in the box instead.

Salah can further raise his stock on Saturday, as Liverpool face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

The 25-year-old can break the record of the most goals scored in a 38-game season if he manages to net a brace against the Eagles, thus surpassing both former Manchester United attacker and ex-Arsenal star Robin van Persie.
