Egyptians crossed out candidates, voted for Salah during presidential election
Mohamed Salah's popularity in Egypt continues to soar, with several of the country's electorate even voting for him to become president, reports Goal. The Liverpool forward has been in electrifying form for Jurgen Klopp's side in 2017-18, scoring 37 goals in 42 appearances in all competition. Salah has also racked up 33 goals in 55 caps for Egypt, and scored the last-minute penalty that secured Egypt's qualification for the 2018 World Cup, in a 2-1 win over Congo. It is perhaps unsurprising, then, that a number of voters crossed out the two names on the ballot - Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, the winner, and Moussa Mustafa Moussa - in order to write Salah's! Al-Sisi won 92% of the vote, per The Economist, but more than one million people spoiled their ballots, with many exercising their democratic right to protest by scribbling Salah's name in the box instead. Salah further raised his stock Saturday after scoring against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The 25-year-old scored in his 21st game of the season against the Eagles, equalling a record currently held by Cristiano Ronaldo and Robin van Persie.
