Mohammed Salah statue gets mocked on internet

A statue intended to pay homage to Egyptian hero Mohamed Salah has been ridiculed for barely resembling the Liverpool forward.

The bronze figure, unveiled in Sharm el-Sheikh, depicts Salah in his familiar celebratory pose with both arms held aloft and his palms facing the sky.
The artwork was on display at the World Youth Forum on Sunday.
The event, which is in its second year, was created by young people in Egypt to help promote peace and prosperity.
a Sculptor Mai Abdallah told Egyptian media that she created the statue because Salah stood as a symbol of excellence for Egyptian youth,
describing the artwork as “distinguished and executable”.
That view was not shared by all, with fans on Twitter likening the statue to Art Garfunkel,
Simply Red front man Mick Hucknall and former Arsenal striker Alan Sunderland.
Leo Sayer and Marv from the movie Home Alone were suggested as other potential     look-a-likes.
There were unfavourable comparisons to the strange statue of Cristiano Ronaldo that was unveiled at Madeira airport in March 2017.
