Mohamed Salah donates 30,000 euros to veteran Egyptian players



Egypt and Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah donated 30,000 euros to the Association of Veteran Players in Egypt, revealed sports host and former footballer Khaled al-Ghandour on Tuesday evening.

“One hundred and twenty families in Egypt receive a monthly wage of LE 400 from the association,” according to Ghandour.

Salah recently won a poll for the 2017 Arab player of the year, which was launched by the beIN Sports channel on Twitter December 22.

The Egyptian star was also crowned the Premier League Player of the Month for November.

He competed for the prize against Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling from league leaders Manchester City, Burnley’s Robbie Brady, Ashley Young from Manchester United, Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, and Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi.

To cap off a sweep of awards and an excellent year, Salah has also secured the BBC’s African Footballer of the Year award.

According to English media reports, Spain’s Real Madrid wants Salah to join the team by the summer season in a deal worth 100 million euros.
