The Egyptian football player Mohamed Salah has managed to win the hearts of many around the world due to his outstanding performance in every match with the Liverpool Football Club. But it seems that he even won the support of an unlikely fan: Israel’s minister of defense.

Avigdor Lieberman called on the country’s chief of staff to sign Mohamed Salah to the Israeli army in a sarcastic tweet on Tuesday.


“I will be calling the chief of staff immediately to tell him to hire Mohamed Salah to the Israeli army,” he said on his official Twitter account.

Salah had scored two goals and nabbed two assists during Liverpool’s match with Roma, Salah’s former club, on Tuesday.

The Egyptian player has 43 goals thus far under his belt in the Premier League and won English soccer's Player of the Year award on Sunday.
