Let’s get this right out of the way…
Mo Salah is a model we didn’t know we needed!
The Liverpool and Egypt star has graced the cover of the latest edition of GQ Middle East Magazine, and oh boy, he looks smokin’.
The photoshoot has been photographed in Manchester by Buzz White and styled by Olivia Harding, and the footballer looks his charming best.
Mo Salah as we’ve never seen before
Nicknamed ‘Egyptian King’ by his admirers, Mo Salah (@MoSalah) is the people’s champion.
Oh, and our cover star as well.

However, not everyone was impressed
Some people blamed the styling
This could have been so much better.https://t.co/vTE9y8Pp44

Others weren’t feeling the vibe
Needed a trim or hair gel?
If Mo Salah can make it on the front cover of GQ despite being in desperate need of a trim, then all you guys out there have half a chance. #nevergiveuponyourmodellingdreams #butdoyouhavetheabsthough #maybenot

Yo they did Mo Salah sooo dirty with that gq shoot. Couldn’t have put some product in his hair or something??
