This is after the Egyptian star gifted him his Liverpool shirt.

“Mo Salah, thank you for the #10 Jersey you sent to me,” wrote Mosimane on his Twitter account on Wednesday.

“I am really humbled. You are an idol and hope for children globally and have proven that it is possible and doable,” he added.

Salah, who has scored nine goals in nine games across all competitions for Liverpool this season, presented Mosimane with the gift in Egypt.

The Liverpool star is currently with the Pharaohs squad that is set to face Libya in home and away 2022 CAF World Cup qualifiers.

Salah and the Pharaohs are set to host Libya at home Borg El-Arab Stadium on Friday and then meet Libya again away on Monday .

Meanwhile, Al Ahly have renewed the contract of Egypt international forward Salah Mohsen.

Mohsen, whose contract with the Red Devils was set to expire in June of 2023, has signed a new four-year deal with the club, meaning he will remain at the club until 2026.

Mohsen joined the Cairo giants from his boyhood club ENPPI in 2018, but was subsequently sent on loan to Smouha during the 2019/20 season.

Upon his return last season, he made 33 appearances under Pitso Mosimane.
