CLASSY Mohamed Salah invited his former Egyptian team-mate Moamen Zakaria to the Liverpool dressing room to celebrate their FA Cup win over Chelsea.
Salah had to watch a large part of Saturday’s final from the touchline after being substituted through injury.
Liverpool’s epic dressing room celebrations were shared with former Egypt star Zakaria, who is suffering from motor neuron disease, after being invited by Salah.
The striker’s team-mates had previously kept their cool, beating Chelsea 6-5 on penalties to secure their second domestic trophy of the season.
The trophy win also keeps the Reds in the hunt for a historic quadruple with the Premier League title and Champions League still to play.
Salah and his Liverpool team-mates danced with delight as Zakaria held the famous FA Cup trophy in the bowels of Wembley.
Zakaria was diagnosed with ASL in 2020.
The disease leads to the progressive loss of motor neurons, which control voluntary muscles.
One fan tweeted of the healing moment: “Mo Salah and Liverpool celebrate their FA Cup win with Egyptian footballer Moamen Zakaria, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2020. The beautiful game.”
Another tweeted: “What Salah did to Moamen Zakaria shows you what football is really about.”
