Egyptian professional footballer and adidas ambassador, Mohamed Salah, held a children’s press conference hosted by adidas.
Mo Salah, was spotted outside The Dubai Mall with an entourage of excited school children from Dubai based, DES School, where he held an hour-long press conference with the children with the Dubai Fountains and the Burj Khalifa as the backdrop. Salah was asked a range of questions, some football related and others more light-hearted!
‘What were your favourite and worst subjects in school?’ Salah fired back the answer with a laugh saying “I didn’t have a favourite subject in school so I’m glad I know how to play football.”
And when asked ‘what was the highlight of your career?’ Salah replied, saying “I would say the day I scored the goal which qualified Egypt for the World Cup 2018.”
The children aged between 7 – 10 years old, hailing from all parts of the world, including Salah’s home country of Egypt, were super excited to have an experience to engage with an icon in an intimate environment. Yusef Aneel said “I had the best day with Mo Salah. I got the opportunity to ask him questions and play with him after.”
Following the Q&A, Salah then made an appearance at the adidas Originals store at The Dubai Mall to greet competition winners and fans, as well as enjoy a performance by local Abu Dhabi-based rapper, Freek with his own track ‘Mo Salah’.
