MUST READ: Mo Salah shares his life experiences with refugees through LFC Foundation

Mohamed Salah recently shared his wisdom on reaching his life goals with a group of refugees during a Global Works session run by LFC Foundation.

The Liverpool star told the group of 20 participants that if you have a vision and work hard then your dreams can come true.

Salah surprised the group by arriving at their session before taking part in an inspiring Q&A in which he discussed challenges faced on the pitch and the importance of a player’s life off the pitch.

Following the Q&A, the Egypt international watched on as the group showcased their football skills in small-sided games, while he also spent time talking individually to two young refugees about their journey and spoke about the importance of hard work and belief.

“If you have a good vision and you believe inside you that there is a bright light there, you can achieve big things,” Salah said at the event. “I believe if you work hard and you have a good vision, all your dreams will happen. All of them.

“You just need to really work hard and be able to sacrifice and do everything possible to make your dream come true.”

Matt Parish, chief executive of LFC Foundation, said: “It was incredible for us to have Mo come down to the session and share his experiences and advice with the group, it was clear to see the impact the visit had on our participants.

“As a hero to so many across the world, Mo was able to inspire these young men and the smiles on their faces throughout showed just how much this visit meant to them.”

LFC Foundation and key partners work closely with refugees across the Liverpool City Region, providing weekly football sessions to help integrate them into the community and make new friends.
