Did you know Liverpool and Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah was in the country on Tuesday night?

Game Yetu can authoritatively confirm that it’s indeed true that Salah jetted in Kenya on Tuesday evening and left on Wednesday at around 7 a.m.

“Yes. Salah was here. He came in on Tuesday evening and checked out early morning today. He was on transit,” an official from the hotel told Game Yetu.

The official also told of fans' jubilation the minute ‘Mo’ stepped into the hotel.

“Immediately he walked in everyone wanted a picture with him. So he agreed to sign some autographs for fans,” the official added.

Salah fell short of success in the just ended Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] tournament in Cairo, Egypt. The Pharaohs were knocked out by Bafana Bafana in the last 16 courtesy of a last-minute striker by Thembinkosi Lorch.

Salah’s Liverpool are currently on their pre-season tour, where they have already lost to Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla. They face Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday at the Yankee Stadium.
