Mohamed Salah has revealed that he is free to eat what he wants due to not having “any fat” on his body.
Mohamed Salah has enjoyed an outstanding debut season on Merseyside, scoring 43 goals for Jurgen Klopp‘s side including a brace in their Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma.
Speaking to CNN, Salah lifted the lid on his gastronomic habits, including his love of kushari, Egypt‘s national dish.
“Nutrition is so important, it’s part of the game,’ the 25-year-old said. “It has helped with my recovery, allowed me to sleep better and helped my body adapt quickly.
“My nutritionist says that because I don’t have any fat on my body, I can eat what I want. I also don’t drink so it’s fine.
“When I go back to Egypt, I call my friend from the airport to buy kushari for us to eat in the car. I pull my hoodie over my head, jump into the car and then I’m eating it straight away!”
