He congratulated Juergen Klopp, the coach of Liverpool FC, who wrote on the official account of the Laureus Prize, and said: "Mohamed Salah definitely deserves the award. Congratulations, Mo, you deserve a lot of awards, it is a major prize for you."
The Laureus World Sports Prize is a prize awarded annually to athletes, and the International Sports Award was sent in 1999 with the support of its partners in the automotive and telecommunications field, and the first festival was held on May 25, 2000, in Monte Carlo, the capital of the Principality of Monaco, two years later.
The Laureus World Sports Awards were launched in Monaco and Prince Albert was the official host, with the late South African leader Nelson Mandela as a guest of honor.
Selection is carried out in two stages, first: a selection committee of the world's leading sports writers, editors and broadcasters from the voices of more than 80 countries to create a shortlist of six nominations in each category.
The second stage, during which the voting process is monitored by the independent auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers, for voting, then the members of the Laureus International Sports Academy, by secret ballot, select the prize winners.
The Liverpool coach added: "When you talk about Mohamed Salah, you think first of all about an outstanding footballer, a great goalscorer and a great player tactically."
Klopp continued: "If I told you that Salah is a better person than being a player, then you will have the ability to imagine what kind of person he is."
The German coach concluded, saying: Certainly, Salah knows very well that without the presence of other people in the sport, he cannot win individual prizes in the round witch, but in this case it is your prize alone. You are really an inspiration to many. Congratulations again and a worthy award.
The Egyptian star won the award due to his achievements with Liverpool and the projects he undertakes in his hometown of Nagrig.
