Mohamed Salah welcomes special guest in Liverpool’s dressing room after Chelsea’s FA Cup final win

Liverpool welcomed Moamen Zakaria into their dressing room to celebrate their FA Cup final victory over Chelsea at Wembley.

Zakaria suffers from incurable Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Motor Neuron Disease, which affects the brain and spinal cord. The former Egyptian international was diagnosed three years ago.

But after Liverpool’s dramatic penalty shootout victory over Chelsea at Wembley, Zakaria was invited into the Reds’ dressing room to party with Jurgen Klopp’s team. A video posted to Salah’s Instagram showed the 34-year-old being pushed around the locker room in his wheelchair by Adrian while holding the FA Cup.

Many of Liverpool’s players and staff can also be seen dancing and singing to GALA – Freed from Desire – in scenes similar to those witnessed following Liverpool’s Carabao Cup final victory over Chelsea in February.

Salah, who was injured in the first half of Saturday’s game, dedicated his hat-trick against Leeds United on the first day of last season to Zakaria. The striker put his hands over his ears as the celebration was regularly held by Zakaria during his playing days.

Zakaria has not played football since he was diagnosed in 2019. He was in the UK to have his health checked at a medical center in London.

Speaking about Salah’s injury after the game, Reds coach Jurgen Klopp said: “Mo came over and said he could go on, but he felt a little bit. I hope he gets well.”
