As hard hitting journalism goes, we’re not expecting a Pulitzer for this – but thought Liverpool fans would appreciate the story behind THAT Mo Salah banner!
The other day, snaps from WWE went viral that showed a Liverpool fan holding a sign that read: Mo Salah: King of Egypt!
His name is Riaz and we tracked him down on Twitter and asked him his thoughts behind it…
It turns out though that Riaz had his banner confiscated on the strict instructions of WWE head honcho Vince McMahon (or so the security said…)!
Here’s how our chat went:
EOTK: So.. What made you come up with the idea?
Riaz: First of all, because I’m on EOTK, I’d just like to take this opportunity to give a massive shoutout to Mo Salah’s Mum because she gave birth to an absolute legend. The idea was really last minute, I decided I wanted to take a sign for the event, and who better to promote than the King of Egypt?
EOTK: Haha! I’m sure she’ll appreciate that… So what happened inside the Arena – I heard the banner got taken off you?
