Mohamed Salah exhibited an amazing gesture on the streets of the UK when he saved a homeless man, David Craig, who was harassed by a group of boys within a petrol station close to Anfield. The Egyptian star pulled up at the petrol station in his Bentley and then saw David being harassed by some boys as they continued to taunt him.
According to the Mirror, the situation occurred moments after Liverpool defeated Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League on 28 September. Salah stepped in, warded off the boys and warned them they could also be in the same situation in the future.
After they left, the Liverpool forward then went into the cash machine to withdraw £100 (around R2 100) for the man.
David Craig has been homeless for six years and has hailed Salah as a "real-life hero".
"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.”
Also, Mesut Özil offered huge financial support to an Arsenal mascot who was earlier sacked by the club, despite that the German recently accepted a huge pay cut on his wages.
Jerry Quy was relieved of his duties at the club at the start of the week with Arsenal claiming his services were no longer needed since there are no fans in the stadium during games.
The German midfielder says he would pay Gunnersaurus's wages after the club let the mascot go after 27 years of his service.
