Liverpool and Egypt forward Mohamed Salah's boots enter British Museum

Following his record-breaking season, the FC crew debate whether Mohamed Salah has surpassed Neymar as the best player after Messi and Ronaldo.

To cap off his incredible season, Mohamed Salah has seen his football boots enter the British Museum as part of their collection of priceless Egyptian artefacts.

After scoring 44 goals in 51 games this season and attaining hero status in his home nation by securing World Cup qualification, Salah's adidas boots are to be exhibited as one of the "greatest treasures from Egyptian history."

The boots will be going on display next week in the run up to the UEFA Champions League final, with Salah in action as Liverpool face Real Madrid in Kiev.

"This acquisition brings the British Museum's world-famous Egyptian collection right up to date," said Neal Spencer, keeper of Ancient Egypt and Sudan at the British Museum. "Displayed amidst the statues of ancient pharaohs, we now show the boots with which Mo Salah won the Golden Boot for Liverpool."

Amazing stuff.
