Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is helping to tackle Islamophobia in the city, the region’s mayor says.
The Reds forward scored 44 goals in his debut season on Merseyside and helped his side to the Champions League final.
And Steve Rotheram, mayor of Liverpool City Region, says the 26-year-old Egyptian’s impact as a high-profile Muslim has “broken down barriers”.
“His legacy will be much more about what’s happened off the field,” Rotheram added.
