The British Museum have added Mohamed Salah’s record-breaking boots to their Egyptian collections.
Salah ended his fantastic debut campaign with Liverpool by writing his name into the history books with 32 goals in 36 games, shattering Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez’s joint-record of 31 goals in a 38-game English Premier League season.
The striker’s boots will first be exhibited in the gallery next week as part of the buildup to the Uefa Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid in Kiev.
They will be displayed alongside ancient statues of Pharaohs and historic Egyptian artefacts in the museum.
“We’ve made an exciting new acquisition! To celebrate Egyptian footballing star Mohamed Salah being top scorer in the Premier League this season, we’ll be displaying his boots alongside objects from ancient Egypt in the run-up to the Champions League final,” the museum tweeted.
