Liverpool football sensation Mohamed Salah is not just a dutiful footballer on the field of play, he is also a dutiful father who is never shy away from flaunting how much he cherishes the opportunity to spend quality time with his family.
He recently shared a picture showing when he was having a wonderful time with his two daughters, Makka and Kayan to his over 40 million Instagram followers. In the picture, Mohamed Salah laid on a chair in his living room while lifting up his less than a year old daughter Kayan. Makka who is Mohamed Salah’s first child, rested on him while giving the footballer a big smile.
In the caption, the 28-year-old Egypt international wrote: “choosing my favorite” to tell the world how much his daughters mean to him. Since Salah’s wife Maggi who he officially married in 2013 did not feature in the picture, she should be the one behind the camera that captured the wonderful father and daughters’ moment.
