In late September, Salah pulled up to a petrol station in Liverpool and noticed a homeless man, David Craig, being verbally harassed by a small group.
Not liking what he saw, the Egyptian star intervened, warned the abusers that they could one day face a similar fate, and handed the homeless man some money.
The gesture, which was caught on CCTV, clearly meant a lot to the man in question, who has now paid tribute to Salah for stepping in on his behalf when many others wouldn't have.
"Mo was every bit as wonderful as he is for Liverpool on the pitch," Mr. Craig was quoted by
"He heard what a group of lads was 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.
"Mo had seen a couple of the lads hassling me. They called me names, asked why I was begging, and told me to get a job.
"He saw what was happening and said something to them, and then he went to the cash machine. I was more than chuffed. I'm a massive fan.
"Mo is a real-life hero in my eyes, and I want to thank him."
Salah's heroic moment came on the same night that Liverpool defeated Arsenal 3-1 in the Premier League with the attacker playing the full 90 minutes that night at Anfield.
