Salah saved homeless man being hassled by gang of yobs then handed him £100

Mohamed Salah has been hailed as a 'real-life hero' after stepping in to fend off yobs hassling a homeless man.

The Liverpool star spotted the altercation as he pulled into a petrol station.

The incident occurred on September 28, the same day the Reds beat Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League at Anfield.

The gas station is near the Liverpool ground and is usually frequented by homeless man Daniel Craig.

It was here where a group of yobs started hassling the 50-year-old, taunting him over his living situation.

Salah had pulled up in his Bentley and witnessed what was going on.

The Egyptian got out of his car and gave the gang a scolding, telling them that they could be in the same situation.

It was enough to see the group disperse and at this point, Salah went to a cash machine to withdraw £100 for Mr Craig.

He told The Sun: “Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch.

“He heard what a group of lads were saying to me, then turned to them and said, ‘That could be you in a few years’.

“I only knew I wasn’t hallucinating when Mo incredibly handed me £100. What a complete legend.”

The former labourer has been sleeping rough for six years and usually stays near where Anfield is situated.

The incident was caught on CCTV, and he added: "He saw what was happening and said something to them and then he went to the cash machine.

“Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes and I want to thank him.”
