Mustafa Ali: WWE Superstar speaks on how Liverpool Star Mohammad Salah inspires him and how he desires to do the same for others.
Mohammed Salah’s Liverpool run has been nothing short of heroic. He returned as the highest goal scorer last season. He also led Liverpool to a second consecutive Champions League Final this year.
Salah has become an Icon around the world. And one WWE Superstar wants to have a similar impact like the Liverpool forward. Mustafa Ali, who wrestles on the SmackDown Brand spoke about Mohammed Salah’s impact on sports in an interview with Sky Sports.
“What’s awesome about Mo is his representation is so far-reaching. I saw a clip recently where he took his daughter onto the field and the entire stadium erupted. You know the reception for her is tied into their love for him and that’s what I want to do here. I’ve got a daughter and I’ve brought her to WWE events and the moment people realised that’s my daughter, they gave her a standing ovation. It’s so cool to break down those barriers. Mo Salah is from the same faith as me, he looks like me in certain aspects and what he is doing is inspiring me. Not as a football fan, as a human being I’m thinking ‘this guy’s awesome’ for what he represents.”
