To celebrate Liverpool’s FA Cup victory over Chelsea, Mohamed Salah invited former Egypt teammate Moamen Zakaria into the Liverpool dressing room.
After being forced off due to injury, Salah was forced to watch a large portion of Saturday’s final from the sidelines.
After Salah invited him in, Liverpoo’s epic dressing room celebrations were shared with former Egypt star Zakaria, who suffers from motor neuron disease.
The forward’s teammates had kept their cool earlier in the season, defeating Chelsea 6-5 on penalties to win their second domestic cup of the season.
With the Premier League title and the Champions League still to play for, the Reds are in contention for a historic quadruple.
Salah and his Liverpool teammates joyfully danced inside Wembley Stadium as Zakaria held the famous FA Cup trophy.
Zakaria was diagnosed with ASL in 2020.
Motor neurons that control voluntary muscles are gradually lost as the disease progresses.
“Mo Sаlаh аnd Liverpool celebrаting their FA Cup win with Egyptiаn footbаller Moаmen Zаkаriа, who wаs diаgnosed with ALS in 2020,” one fаn wrote on Twitter. “Whаt а lovely gаme.”
“Whаt Sаlаh did with Moаmen Zаkаriа shows you whаt footbаll is reаlly аbout,” аnother tweeted.
