He is also a pure fan of premier league side, Liverpool FC.

This came out in the open in around 2017 when Liverpool lost the Champions league final to Real Madrid.

Infamously, he was seen in a video where he said that, if he would meet Sergio Ramos, who broke Mo Salah's shoulder, apparently causing Liverpool the title he would beat him up. Sounds funny right.

In the above photo, you can see where he was a bit younger, he loved the former club captain, Steven Gerrard.

The above photo shows where he most recently wore a Liverpool shirt to his Club training ground after Liverpool won the league and said he was ready to take any fine.
