Mohamed Salah has been in the headlines for scoring his 50th goal in his 65th appearance for Liverpool against Red Star Belgrade and thus became the fastest player for Liverpool to reach the milestone. The 26-year-old Egyptian fired a couple of goals against the Reds and helped Liverpool win the match by 4-0 at the Anfield for the UEFA Champions League 2018-19. Salah’s noble gesture with a fan won him millions of hearts. After the match, as Salah was walking towards the changing room, he spotted a lady into the crowd.
She was seated in the front row with hand sing made in Arabic and the fan held a sign that read, “I have come from Egypt for you.” Salah immediately ran to her and handed her his jersey and also received something in return. He looked a bit confused but as per the reports, the lady gave him Thornton chocolates.

Salah scored a couple of goals in the match one was at the 45th minute and the other was at the 51st minute. He started off slow in the season and could not score much. But after his 50th goal, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised Salah and said, “[It's] an exceptional number," he said. "Hopefully he can continue. He's completely fine. It's all good. I couldn't see his face [when he scored], but I know he's fine. I saw his face when I took him off—that was different!.”
