A statue of Cristiano Ronaldo made headlines for all the wrong reasons last year. Now, it seems Mohamed Salah is following suit.
The Liverpool forward has had a statue created in his honour recently.
Unveiled in Egypt, the sculpture shows off Salah’s trademark goal celebration with his arms aloft.
Ronaldo’s infamous statue was mocked continuously for its amusing appearance and lack of resemblance to the football player.
Ironically, Salah’s bust may be even wider from the mark and tweeps can’t stop laughing.
Some funny comparisons include Art Garfunkel (musician) and even cartoon characters, Beavis and Butt-head.
Mia Abdel Allah sculpted the statue and accepts the widespread criticism.
Briefly.co.za took a look at some of the funniest tweets.
