Mohamed, an international student, and Mo Salah.

It was the best day of my life. When I entered Anfield for the first time, it felt like I was dreaming, everyone was singing for Mo Salah. I was then led to the Players Zone and I saw all the players and Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp. When I finally met Mo, he said that he would probably see me again, sooner or later, as we both lived in Liverpool.
