Liverpool forward's boots go on display at British Museum

Liverpool forward's boots go on display at British Museum

Liverpool star Mo Salah's boots are to sit among Egyptian pharaohs in the British Museum following his Golden Boot win. However, none of those goals were scored with the boots that will go on display: this particular pair has never been used.

The winger also led Egypt to qualify to the World Cup for the first time since 1990 in Italy, scoring five goals out of Egypt's seven at the qualifiers.

Salah's donation is apparently the first-ever football boots shown by the museum, who are aiming to highlight the efforts of a modern Egyptian hero.

This acquisition brings the British Museum's world famous Egyptian collection right up to date.

"That's just like the British Museum", said someone in the office, "Nicking something from an Egyptian and putting it on display".

"The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the United Kingdom, with a truly global impact", the BBC quoted exhibit keeper Neal Spencer as saying.

The Reds Champions League final match against Los Blancos could be a determining factor if the former Chelsea striker would make a move to the Spanish capital.

The 25-year-old will now be hoping to help Liverpool FC end the campaign in the best possible fashion when they take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier reported that Liverpool are eyeing a bid to land Gianluigi Buffon despite aiming to end his footballing career this season.
