A pair of cleats owned by Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will be displayed beside statues of the ancient pharaohs in the Egyptian collection at the British Museum in London, following the player's amazing performance in the English Premier League this season.

“This acquisition brings the British Museum’s world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date," stated Neal Spencer, assisstant keeper of museum's Department of Ancient Egypt and Sudan.

“The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the UK, with a truly global impact,” Spencer said, adding that “displayed amidst the statues of ancient pharaohs, we now show the boots with which Mo Salah won the Golden Boot for Liverpool.”

This year, the 25-year-old forward Salah played the best season ever played by an Egyptian, scoring 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season.

He has clinched all individual titles in the Premier League, including Player of the Year, the Golden Boot and will get the chance to add to that tally when Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on 26 May.
