Mohamed Salah’s hopes to win his first Champions League trophy were dashed when he was forced off the pitch with a suspected dislocated shoulder injury.
The exit caused a tremendous stir among football fans worldwide as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said Mo’s place at the World Cup was in doubt.
The Egypt international had enjoyed a stunning debut season with Liverpool, after quitting Roma last summer to join the Merseyside team.
His 44 goals in all competitions helped fire Liverpool to the European final and secure Champions League football next season.
His impressive campaign also saw him handed PFA Player of the Year award and pip Harry Kane to the elusive Golden Boot.
The 25-year-old is now one of the biggest stars in world football, so how much does he earn?
Mo was signed for a massive £34million with Liverpool last summer.
At the time, Mo is believed to have signed a £90,000 a week contract, which was more than double his salary at previous club Roma.
But reports this month suggest the Reds are keen to offer Mo a new deal in order to keep him at the club.
It comes as Mo’s fine skills have been the talk of the town across Europe with Real Madrid and Barcelona reportedly intending to hand him an offer.
At present, Mo’s net worth is believed to be approximately £1.6 million, according to The Richest.
He has also been raking in money from his endorsement and sponsorship deals.
Mo, who’s from the city of Basyoun in Egypt, started his senior career with club El Mokawloon in the Egyptian Premier League in 2010.
He departed shortly to join Basel, Switzerland for an undisclosed fee.
In his stunning debut season in the country, Mo won the league title – the SAFP Golden Player Award.
His stunning performances caught the attention of Premier League side Chelsea, who subsequently signed him for a £11 million fee in 2014.
However, he was used sparingly at the club, and was allowed to leave for Roma, who signed him for £15m.
Following consistent match-winning performances in Rome, Mo headed back to the Premier League when he was signed for Liverpool.
Mo married Maggi in 2013 and has a daughter Makka, born in 2014.
