Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah said men in “my culture and in the Middle East” need to treat women with more respect as he was named one of the world’s 100 most influential people by Time magazine.

The Egypt striker, 26, a practising Muslim, was also one of the US magazine’s six cover stars and used his interview to discuss women’s equality.

“We need to change the way we treat women in our culture,” he told Time.
