Now he’s making people happy off the field as well.
Young Liverpool fan Ammar Halabi enjoyed a dream come true during Liverpool’s pre-season tour of the United States.
With the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 16-year-old Ammar, who is bravely battling muscular dystrophy, had the chance to meet his hero – Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.
Salah met up with the youngster and his family, who fled to the States as refugees from Syria two years ago, during the Reds’ recent stay in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Salah handed over a signed shirt and posed for pictures with Ammar, his siblings Mahmoud, Luay and Bayan, and parents Rawda and Yaser.
On meeting Salah, Ammar said: “Everybody loves him and I want to be like him. He is a great person. It’s a really great feeling.”
The 25-year old made an error in stoppage time that led to a goal for Borussia Dortmund in the pre-season International Champions Cup game on Sunday.
After the friendly, Karius slammed his critics on Instagram, writing: “To those who take joy in seeing other people fail or suffer, I feel for you.
“Whatever it is that is happening in your life to hold this much anger and hate, I pray that it passes and good things come to you.”
The German received the backing of former Spain goalkeeper Iker Casillas after being criticised – and his Reds team-mate Salah.
The Egyptian star sent out a tweet to motivate Karius while advising him not to bother with those who write him off.
“Stay strong Karius, it has happened to the best of players. Ignore those who [email protected],” Salah wrote.
