Mohamed Salah Liverpool mural
The Egyptian superstar is a fan favourite on the red half of Merseyside and now finds himself immortalised in a giant painting

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has become the subject of a giant mural from British artist John Culshaw, with the Egyptian superstar immortalised in a painting near Anfield.

The design, which was commissioned by the Anfield Road Traders’ Association as part of a revamp of Anfield Road, is the latest offering from Culshaw, who has previously worked on a goalkeepers mural at the Reds’ training ground and a piece recognising the achievements of former captain Steven Gerrard.

Salah, who has sent records tumbling during his time on Merseyside, now finds himself in illustrious company, with a man that has netted 153 goals through 239 appearances for Liverpool topping a fan poll to determine who would figure in artwork close to the club’s famous stadium.
