MO SALAH has been added to Egyptian schools’ curriculum in a move designed to inspire the nation’s children.
The 29-year-old’s achievements on and off the pitch will be written in textbooks in education centres across the North African country.
The Liverpool superstar’s life will be taught to both primary and secondary school students from next year.
Younger kids will learn about Salah’s contribution for both club and country on the football pitch.
While secondary school pupils will explore Salah’s exploits off the field, including his charitable donations and what it means to be a hero.
An excerpt from one textbook reads: “Salah’s desire to help others is because he wants to give young people a chance to succeed.
“He is a role model to millions of Egyptians who give him the nickname ‘the happiness maker’.”
It is illustrated with a picture of Salah, an observant Muslim, with his daughter Makka, named after the holy city in Saudi Arabia.
And kids may have a lot to study, given Salah’s recent accolades on Merseyside.
