His life story in English-language textbooks for primary and secondary level students alongside icons like Naguib Mahfouz and Sir Magdi Yacoub.

Born in the village of Nagrig in the Nile Delta, Salah has consistently donated large sums of money into charitable efforts to develop his hometown. These philanthropic efforts will be studied by secondary level students, while primary level students will be taught about his upbringing and successes in the world of football.
