(CNN) – If you’re a sculptor it seems there’s no tougher job than delivering an accurate representation of the world’s best footballers.
A new statue of Liverpool star Mo Salah was unveiled in his native Egypt and quickly had football fans on social media in stitches, and even the sculpture’s creator admitted she’s “not happy with it.”
Mohamed Salah has become one of the biggest soccer stars in the world, so naturally a statue was crafted in his likeness in his homeland of Egypt. With Salah leading the way, Egypt made its first World Cup in 28 years in 2018. However, once the statue was unveiled, it was clear that something was wrong.
“I welcome all criticisms this statue received; this is natural because an artist is subjected to a number of tastes but I am personally not happy with the statue’s final product,” said sculptor Mai Abdel Allah, per CNN.
