Mohammed Salah’s impressive season for Liverpool has seen a pair of his boots added to the world famous Egyptian collection at the British Museum.

Salah has reached national treasure status in his native Egypt after his brilliant 44 goal return in his first season at Anfield.

The Liverpool striker will lead his country’s challenge at the World Cup this summer on the back of winning the Premier League golden boot and being named PFA and Football Writers’ Association player of the year.

Now the 25-year-old’s impact has been recognised even further, with a pair of his adidas X17 Deadly Strike boots being added to the historical collection on display at the British museum.

They will be on display among the biggest collection of Egyptian objects outside of Egypt – including the Rosetta Stone, an ancient decree issued during the Ptolemaic dynasty in 196BC.

Also in the collection is a 5,000-year-old sand-dried mummy, wall paintings from the tomb of Nabamun and sculptures of Rameses the Great.

Mo Salah won the Premier League golden boot in his first season at Liverpool – and his efforts have now been recognised by the British Museum.

The boots will first go on display next week at the London museum, in the build up to Liverpool’s Champions League final against Real Madrid.

Neal Spencer, Keeper of Ancient Egypt and Sudan said, “This acquisition brings the British Museum’s world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date.
