Egyptians Crossed Out Candidates, Voted For Mohamed Salah During The Presidential Elections

Egyptians voted for Mohamed Salah during the recent presidential election.

The Anfield hero returned to the Premier League in the summer, and has made a massive impression, instantly becoming a favourite at Liverpool following his goals, assists, and more goals.

He's not only producing heroics on the club scene, but also on the international arena.

Salah steered Egypt to the 2018 World Cup, netting a last-gasp penalty against Congo. For his country, he's bagged 33 goals in 55 appearances, and will be their talisman in Russia.

And to say thanks, the Egyptian locals actually voted for him in the presidential election.

According to reports from The Economist, more than 1 million (!!) Egyptians tampered with their ballots with some crossing out both candidates while voting for Salah. Class.

Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi eventually won the election ahead of Moussa Mustafa Moussa, but plenty of voters brilliantly opted for Salah.

Meanwhile, Salah will be looking to add to his incredible goal-tally against Crystal Palace in the early kick-off.

He's already weighed in with 28 goals in the league, and is the top scorer in England's top flight.

The Egyptian King.
