Salah led Liverpool to Champions League final for the first time since 2007 and he hopes to lead his team to achieve the title when they face Real Madrid at the final in Kiev on May 26.

"The boots tell a story of a modern Egyptian icon, performing in the United Kingdom, with a truly global impact, and build on our recent project to acquire objects to tell the story of daily life in 20th and 21st century Egypt" said exhibit keeper Neal Spencer.

Egyptian legend Mohamed Aboutrika has now explained why he believes Real's Marcelo is scared of the 25-year-old, and that Jurgen Klopp's side have a big chance of winning the European final next Saturday.

Real, however, are aiming to win their third Champions League in a row and the 13th in their history.
