Salah row escalates with Egyptian FA

first_imgNow the conflict has flared up again after the striker and his lawyer accused the FA of failing to respond to a list of requests dealing with the player’s treatment.Salah’s lawyer Ramy Abbas Issa said the demands involved the player’s “well-being whilst with the national team, and assurances that the image rights violations wouldn’t happen again”.In an angry rebuttal the football federation said Monday that it would not accept the requests, blasting some as “illogical” and insisting it would not “favour one player over another”.Salah hit back with a pair of Facebook videos, insisting he was asking for better security for the whole squad at team hotels.He said that he did not want to be disturbed in his room by visitors wanting to chat in the middle of the night as had happened before.“I’m the person that these things happen to. I’m the person who gets harmed by these things,” he said.“These requests are very small but make things easier, they make the player focused in the match.”The fresh war-of-words between the two sides comes ahead of Egypt’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Niger on September 8.The disagreement between national hero Salah and the Egyptian FA first burst into the open in April over the player’s image rights.Salah was angered that his image was being used by the national team’s main sponsor, telecoms firm WE, when he already had a contract with rival company Vodafone.That dispute was eventually resolved following intervention from political leaders.The player was also reportedly left unhappy after he was made to appear with Chechen strongman Ramzan Kadyrov at Egypt’s training ground in the region for the World Cup in Russia this summer.Kadyrov has been accused of wiping out dissent with a brutal crackdown on his opponents.Egypt crashed out of the World Cup after losing its three matches, with Salah struggling to reach his best after sustaining a shoulder injury playing for his club Liverpool in the Champions League final.0Shares0000(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Egypt’s forward Mohamed Salah looks on during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group A football match between Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the Volgograd Arena in Volgograd on June 25, 2018 © AFP / NICOLAS ASFOURICAIRO, Egypt, Aug 27 – A bitter spat between Egypt star Mohamed Salah and his country’s football authorities escalated Monday, casting a fresh shadow over his involvement with the national team.Salah, 26, and the Egyptian Football Association have previously been at loggerheads due to a disagreement over image rights.last_img read more
