Egyptian professional footballer Mohamed Salah, who plays as a forward for Liverpool, is one of the hottest players on the football scene at the moment. He’s so “hot” that one cafe owner paid tribute to the 25-year-old star by naming his cafe after him.

Formerly known as Country Road Discount Store, the cafe, now called Mohamed Salah Smokers Paradise, has a special deal on offer: whenever Salah scores a goal, everyone gets a free meal that day, reported the Anfield Express.

Salah has scored 36 goals since his debut for Liverpool, and has scored more goals than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues.

The Liverpool-based store sells everything smoking-related, but the irony is that Salah is anti-smoking, however, we’re sure that he appreciates his fan’s grand gesture.

Other Mohamed Salah hardcore fans showed their appreciation for the footballer by referring to him as “Lionel Salah,” “Egyptian Messi,” “The Pharaoh” and “The Egyptian King.”

Salah, who started his career in 2010, is worth an estimated $2.25 million, according to The Richest website.
