Mo Salah to wear special golden boots in Champions League tie with Ajax

Mohamed Salah became the 17th player in Liverpool history to score 100 goals for the club in the Merseyside Derby against Everton on Saturday.

Salah became the first man to reach a century for Liverpool since Steven Gerrard in 2008, but did it in the third-fewest number of games.

To celebrate Salah’s achievement, Adidas have created a bespoke version of the X Ghosted football boots for him to wear in Liverpool’s Champions League fixture against Ajax on Wednesday.

The limited edition design will see Liverpool’s No.11 take to the pitch in a pair of gold and white boots with the accompanying tag ‘Salah100’ down the side.

Salah has, however, tried and tested his boots in training on Monday, but will be looking to break them in properly with a goal on Wednesday in their Group Stage opener.

The Reds will head over to the Eredivisie side after a frantic Premier League clash with Everton that ended 2-2 on Saturday.

Salah became the 17th player in Liverpool FC history to score 100 goals for the club when he notched in the Merseyside Derby against Everton on Saturday lunchtime at Goodison Park to become the first man to reach a century of strikes for the Reds since Steven Gerrard in 2008, and he did so in the third-fewest amount of games.

Liverpool will be without Virgil van Dyke for their Champions League tie and could be forced to play without Thiago Alcantara – who is currently being assessed after after sustaining a knock against The Toffees.

Jurgen Klopp is, however, confident that Naby Keita will return to the fold after he returned a negative COVID-19 test and was cleared to begin training and playing again.
