Egyptian student paints graffiti tribute of Mohamed Salah on school wall



An Egyptian student has payed a graffiti art tribute to football legend Mohamed Salah on the wall of a school in Gharbiya, named the “Mohamed Salah Industrial High School” as Salah had studied there, ElWatan news reported.

Khaled Abdel Monsef al-Saadawy, a 20-year-old student at Tanta University’s Faculty of law, spent seven hours a day for nine days in a row to paint the graffiti portrait, he told ElWatan.

Bad weather proved to be a significant challenge during the project, he said, adding that it was also his first time he worked on a scaffold.

Last year after Mohamed Salah scored remarkable penalty that qualified Egypt for last summer’s World Cup, his hometown in Gharbiya renamed the school in his honor, celebrating Salah’s exceptional success.
