” I asked for more security for all players , is not merely for me ,” Salah said.” We had many agitations at the team’s camp 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 hotel .”. Salah added that he was frequently disturbed by guests coming to his room and wanting to talk.
Salah is enormously popular in Egypt for propelling the football team to their first World cup finals finals virtually 30 times. But in April he fell down with the EFA after it exploited an unauthorised image of him next to a competitive sponsor on the team’s airliner, which Salah labelled” a major insult “.
Tensions flared again when the Egyptian team arrived at their World cup finals education base in Chechnya. The region’s captain, Ramzan Kadyrov, has been heavily criticized by human rights abuses, including mistreatment of LGBTQ beings. Salah was photographed at an tricky has met with Kadyrov, where he was awarded honorary Chechen citizenship.
The arrival of a fame delegating at the team’s training ground to celebrate their success was criticised for potentially shaking the players.” The team’s stand is not required to turn into a village wedding ceremony. Chagrin on you! We are outraged !” said one neighbourhood football expert.
The dispute continued after the tournament, when Salah accused the EFA of rejecting a note of requirements from his solicitor.” Do you not have time to respond to us ?!” he tweeted.
Magdy Abdelghani, an EFA official, told a local television channel “hes not” spoken to Salah since the World cup finals because his” WhatsApp number changes all the time “.
