Fans not impressed with bizarre statue of Mo Salah

first_imgFootball fans around the world were not impressed with Mohamed Salah’s statue that was unveiled at the World Youth Forum in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.An artist named Mai Abdel Allah made the statue to pay homage to the Egyptian after he guided his nation to the World Cup in Russia and also made a sensational impact for Liverpool on his debut Premier League season.Salah scored 44 goals for Liverpool across all competitions last season and also guided them to the Champions League final.Following his achievements, he became a national hero and a symbol of hope for Egyptian youngsters.Abdel Allah’s sculpture shows Salah performing his usual celebration with his arms spread but with tiny arms, legs, body and a relatively large head, the statue has drawn a lot of attention and was criticised for not being anything close to Salah.It is even being said that his statue is worse than that of Cristiano Ronaldo that was unveiled outside Madeira Airport in Portugal.Fortunately for the Portuguese, his statue was reworked on and unveiled again.The bronze bust of the player with a toothy grin and bulging eyes at first was mocked by fans and some even questioned its resemblance to the Portugal and Juventus’ star striker.The island of Madeira in March last year renamed its airport in honour of its hometown hero Ronaldo as well.Ronaldo’s girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, and his mother, Maria, both attended the renaming ceremony of Portugal’s Aeroporto da Madeira, now known as Cristiano Ronaldo Airport.advertisementMadeira Airport has new bust of Cristiano Ronaldo (@Madeira) June 17, 2018According to a report in the Madeira Island News, the soccer star’s family had requested for the replacement through Ronaldo’s CR7 Museum, which is also based on the Portuguese island.The new bust was placed on the same day Ronaldo scored his 51st career hat-trick to help Portugal draw 3-3 against 2010 world champions Spain at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.Salah and his fans would now be hoping that the Liverpool striker gets the same treatment as the former Real Madrid man and a better statue is made of the prolific Liverpool forward.Why does the statue of @MoSalah look more like #ArtGarfunkel?

He helped me to make as few mistakes as possible.”Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“[Antonio] Conte wasn’t the sort of coach who looks at the name of the player but whether or not they’re functional to his ideas, and that makes it easier for whoever’s job it is to find functional players.”“[Massimiliano] Allegri is more flexible in that sense, so it gives you a bit more margin for manoeuvre in the transfer market.”“We aspire to win the Champions League but we’re not obsessed about it,” he concludes.last_img read more
