The vagaries of Egyptian football, the burden of Mohamed Salah and the (seemingly temporary) crisis at Liverpool F.C.
The guest on the latest episode of Eleven Named People’s Youtube stream was Michael Hanna (Twitter: @mwhanna1), U.S. Program Director for the International Crisis Group, who talks about his Egyptian immigrant beginnings in 1970s Liverpool, his love for Liverpool Football Club, the extraordinary career and burden of Mohamed Salah (not just on the field; like this or this), the vagaries of Egyptian football, and whether the crisis at Liverpool F.C. is temporary or more deep-seated.
This episode was recorded on October 7th. Since then Salah has scored a hattrick against Glasgow Rangers in the UEFA Champions League and the winning goal in a tough match-up against Manchester City in the English Premier League.
