Mohamed Salah's family 'to sacrifice three calves'

The family of Liverpool maestro Mohamed Salah will allegedly sacrifice three calves in order to wish him luck in the Champions League final.

The family of Liverpool maestro Mohamed Salah will reportedly sacrifice three calves today in order to wish him well in tonight's Champions League final with Real Madrid.

The 25-year-old, who has enjoyed a stellar debut campaign on Merseyside, is a practising Muslim and has been fasting, as well as abstaining from sex, as part of Ramadan.

According to Egyptian publication Al Masry al Youm, the player's family will perform a traditional sacrificial ritual in Egypt today "on Salah's behalf" in a move that will allegedly bring him luck when he lines up against the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos tonight.

A loophole in the customs of Ramadan means that because he has been travelling out to Kiev for the game, Salah will be allowed to eat in the run-up to the kickoff, however.

Salah goes into tonight's game needing three goals to equal Ian Rush's record of 47 goals in all competitions for Liverpool in a single season.
