Following Liverpool's 3-1 win over Arsenal on September 28, Salah was seen at a petrol station near Anfield, where David Craig, who was been sleeping rough for six years, was being taunted by a group of thugs.

The Liverpool star then stepped in and told the abusers that they could one day end up homeless, before withdrawing £100 to give to Craig.

“Mo had seen a couple of the lads hassling me," Craig told the Sun.

“They were calling me names, asking why I was begging and telling me to get a job.

"Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch.

"He heard what a group of lads were saying to me, then turned to them and said, 'That could be you in a few years.'

"I only knew I wasn't hallucinating when Mo incredibly handed me £100. What a complete legend.

"He saw what was happening and said something to them and then he went to the cash machine.

"Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes and I want to thank him."

Salah has only added to the legend that surrounds his name on Merseyside. The player has become a fan favourite, not just for his goalscoring exploits but for moments like this, where he goes above and beyond to help those less fortunate than him.
