Liverpool star Mo Salah came to the defense of a man that was being harassed by a rowdy crew, before giving the man £100 for good measure.
David Craig, the homeless man in question, has described the Liverpool star as a hero that is as caring off the pitch as he is menacing off it.
“Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch,” Craig told The Sun.
“He heard what a group of lads were saying to me, then turned to them and said, ‘That could be you in a few years. I only knew I wasn’t hallucinating when Mo incredibly handed me £100. What a complete legend.”
The prolific Egyptian forward’s actions were caught on CCTV after Liverpool’s league victory over Arsenal.
“Mo had seen a couple of the lads hassling me,” said the former labourer.
“They were calling me names, asking why I was begging and telling me to get a job.
He saw what was happening and said something to them and then he went to the cash machine.
“I was more than chuffed. I’m a massive fan. Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes and I want to thank him.”
