Salah's boots join Egyptian exhibit at British Museum

Mo Salah's boots in the British Museum

Mohamed Salah has insisted that it was always in his mind to come back to the Premier League and prove his doubters wrong following his sparkling debut season at Liverpool FC.

Salah's boots have now earned pride of place alongside centuries-old treasures in the museum's Egypt collection.

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.

The boots will be displayed alongside other artifacts from ancient Egypt.

"To celebrate Egyptian footballing star Mo Salah being top scorer in the Premier League this season, we'll be displaying his boots alongside objects from ancient Egypt in the run up to the Champions League final".

Neal Spencer, assistant keeper of the museum's Ancient Egypt and Sudan department, said the boots were an important exhibition of modern Egyptian history.

"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. If Real Madrid wins, then Cristiano will be there once more.

Salah's boots will go on display in gallery 61 from May 24 until the Champions League final, which is being held in Kiev, Ukraine on May 26.

Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayern Munich are all willing to meet Liverpool's €200million asking price for Mohamed Salah, according to a report.
