Mohamed Salah will live forever… Well, not exactly. The Egyptian star will now be part of the great collection of Madame Tussauds Museum in London. The information came from the player himself, who posted on social media a video of his facial expressions being scanned to a computer so they could start producing the piece of art.
According to the staff, the statue will start being produced immediately and will be exhibited still in 2020. The date or month of the debut wasn’t announced yet.
One fact is that this one will be the first statue that Salah will have. Not even in Egypt the number 11 received such a great honor. And being part of one of the greatest Wax Museums in the World is certainly something to be proud of. The Egyptian said he is very excited about working with the Museum’s staff for this new piece.
“We are starting 2020 with this announcement that is sure to satisfy the football-loving crowd around the world. With the Egyptian striker and world champion with Liverpool, Mo Salah is a global star at the height of power,” said the museum’s general director.
Before Mo Salah, the only player of Liverpool’s squad that have received the honor of being part of this museum was, of course, Steven Gerrard. Who better than the captain and one of the legends of the Reds to be there, represented?! His statue was made in 2010 and is still part of the display.
Other players have already got their place in this famous Museum, not all in London. Neuer and Ozil are part of the collection in Berlin. Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi are part of the collection in more than one city around the world. In Blackpool, you can find Joe Hart and Wayne Rooney.
So, what is your opinion about Salah’s statue?! For me, there were other players from Liverpool that may deserve it more than him. But he is a nice guy, and according to Liverpool fans, he is the “Egyptian King”.
