"The Egyptian FA Are Too Scared To Tell Mohamed Salah He Was Wrong"
Mido has slammed the Egyptian FA for staying silent on Mohamed Salah, after the Liverpool forward tested positive for Covid-19 following his brother's wedding.
Egypt played Togo twice during the international break, both against Togo, but Salah was missing from the squad for both games.
The Liverpool forward tested positive for Covid-19 last Friday, having previously been videoed dancing at his brother's wedding with no social distancing and not wearing a mask.

It was confirmed on Wednesday that the former Roma player has failed a second test, and will now almost certainly miss Liverpool's game against Leicester City at the weekend.
Whilst the Egyptian FA have announced the news of the positive tests, they haven't made much other comment and former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido is annoyed at their lack of reaction.
"Does anyone think that Salah made no mistake attending his brother's wedding with 800 to 900 people? In corona time? Isn't that just wrong?" the former Egypt striker said on Al-Nahar TV, via Vi.

"He has the right to celebrate with his brother, but not during a pandemic.
"He's coming to Egypt for the national team and not to attend his brother's wedding. The people love Salah, you also saw this during the wedding. Hundreds of people took pictures while giving him kisses and now Salah has tested positive for the corona virus.
"Is there no one from the union who tells him he was wrong? The fear is just too great. If you let this run, the ship will sink. With you all on board. And we are taken."
Whilst the national team didn't need their star man this week, Jurgen Klopp's need for Salah to be available as soon as possible is far more pressing.
The Reds currently sit behind this weekend's opponents Leicester and will enter the match without a litany of first team players.
