Premier League Sensation, Salah ‘Shocked’ As He Meets His Lookalike. Photos by dimexy247(m) : 4:02 pm On May 05
Liverpool star forward Mohamed Salah was stunned when he met his lookalike Ahmed Bahaa in Egypt. Bahaa has risen in fame as several football supporters have mistaken his identity for the Liverpool star. Ahmed Bahaa has a striking resemblance to Salah but is an engineer who resides in Giza, Egypt.
Bahaa is receiving more attention as Salah has set several records since his arrival and won the PFA Player of the Year.
Footage has resurfaced of Salah coming face-to-face with his doppelganger in the Egyptian village of Nagrig, the former’s hometown, back in 2016.
The doppelganger is Ahmed Bahaam, a 30-year-old businessman who has become the talk of Egypt due to sharing 99.9999 percent of his genetic material with the nation’s favourite footballing idol.
Indeed, Ahmed was guest of honour at a cafe in Cairo as he joined fellow fans to watch Salah in action during the Champions League semifinal against Roma.
In a video on YouTube, Bahaa revealed that he is older than the 25-year-old Salah, and when they both met the Liverpool star could not but admit the striking resemblance.
He said, “Salah was taken aback when he saw me.”
Bahaa added, “He said to me he feels like he’s standing in front of a mirror, but that it is he who looks like me because i’m older.”
Bahaa also revealed that he is honoured to look like Salah as everybody in Egypt admires the Liverpool forward.
He said, “Everyone feels Mohammed Salah is just like them, a cousin or a brother and i am exposed to this quite often.”
