Mo Salah is such a big deal in his homeland, that Egyptians get free minutes with Vodafone every time he bags!
The mobile phone giant has announced the news, with Salah becoming an ambassador for the company earlier in the season.
From now until the end of the campaign, every time our right-winger scores, Egyptians signed up on the bundle ‘Mohamed Salah World,’ get 11 free minutes!
11 of course is his shirt number, so seems a fair number to use…
By our reckoning, with Salah already on 36 for the campaign, we’re hoping for him to at the very least reach 40 goals in all competitions – but ideally he’ll go a little higher.
His four-goal haul on Saturday evening made him the highest scoring Liverpool player in a debut season in the club’s history.
And he’s on course to better the 31 Premier League goals scored by Alan Shearer, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo – which is the highest since the top flight became a 38-game competition.
Decent signing, all in all.
