Salah was crowned African Footballer of the Year in 2017 and Premier League Player of the Season in 2017-18 after scoring 32 goals for Liverpool FC in a single season. Salah has won the Golden Boot three times, which is given to the Premier League’s highest scorer each season.

Salah was born in Basyoun, Egypt, north of Cairo, to middle-class parents. As a child, he admired professional football stars such as Brazilian Ronaldo and French Zinedine Zidane, whose moves he attempted to imitate during pick-up games.

He joined the Egyptian club El Mokawloon’s youth team when he was 14 years old and made his senior team debut in 2010. Salah’s pace and ability to score quickly drew the attention of Swiss club FC Basel, which signed him to a contract in 2012.

In 2012–13, he helped FC Basel win the Swiss Super League and reach the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Europa League semifinals. That season, he was named the Swiss Golden Player as the best player in the Swiss Super League.
