” I asked for more protection for all players , not only for me ,” Salah said.” We had many frays at the team’s clique during our participation at the World Cup in Russia. I couldn’t go to the restaurant twice as they told me you won’t be able to go there for your own safety due to the crowd inside the inn .”. Salah was indicated that he was frequently disturbed by clients coming to his room and wanting to talk.
Salah is staggeringly favourite in Egypt for propelling the football team to their first World cup finals finals nearly 30 times. But in April he fell out with the EFA after it used an unauthorised image of him next to a rival sponsor on the team’s aircraft, which Salah labelled” a major insult “.
Tensions flared again when the Egyptian unit arrived at their World Cup practice base in Chechnya. The region’s chairman, Ramzan Kadyrov, has been heavily criticised for human rights abuses, including persecution of LGBTQ parties. Salah was photographed at an clumsy meeting with Kadyrov, where he was awarded honorary Chechen citizenship.
The arrival of a fame delegation at the team’s training ground to celebrate their success was criticised for potentially disrupting the players.” The team’s abide does not necessarily turn into a village wedding ceremony. Chagrin on you! We are scandalized !” said one neighbourhood football expert.
The dispute persisted after the tournament, when Salah alleged the EFA of neglecting a word of challenges from his advocate.” Do you not have time to respond to us ?!” he tweeted.
Magdy Abdelghani, an EFA official, told a neighbourhood television channel “hes not” spoken to Salah since the World Cup because his” WhatsApp number changes all the time “.
