Mohamed Salah Speaks About Disruption The Egypt Camp Faced During The World Cup
It might've been a glowing 2017/18 campaign for the Mohamed Salah, but his World Cup tournament with Egypt left a lot to be desired.
The Liverpool attacker scored an unprecedented 44 goals in all campaigns last season, but couldn't save his national side from getting knocked out in the group stages of the World Cup in Russia.
But now, in an exclusive interview with the Guardian, Salah has explained how the WC was a bit of a horror show for Egypt.
He said: "I asked for more security for all players, not only for me. We had many disturbances 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."
It doesn't stop there. It is reported that a EFA official told a local Egyptian television channel that he had been abler to get in touch with Salah ever since the World Cup because his "WhatsApp number changes all the time.'
Salah recently tweeted this (translated):
الطبيعي أن أي اتحاد كرة يسعى لحل مشاكل لاعبيه حتى يوفروا له الراحة.. لكن في الحقيقة ما أراه عكس ذلك تمامًا.. ليس من الطبيعي أن يتم تجاهل رسائلي ورسائل المحامي الخاص بي ... لا أدري لماذا كل هذا؟ أليس لديكم الوقت الكافي للرد علينا؟!

"Naturally any ball union seeks to solve the problems of its players until they provide comfort.. But really what I see is exactly the opposite. It is not natural that my letters and my lawyer's letters are ignored... I don't know why this is all. Don't you have enough time to answer us?!"
I really don't know that what's going on in Egypt these days but I'm still supporting Salah :relieved:

Unfortunately, the Egyptian Football Federation doesn't know how to deal with a big star as @MoSalah,because Salah is a new case for Egypt :flag_eg: need more professional way to handle #salah #mosalah #mohamedsalah #lfc #ynwa #thekop #LiverpoolFC #محمد_صلاح #ليفربول #ادعم_محمد_صلاح

Salah and agent latest tweets suggest the issue still continues. They will bring him down if he does not comply. Mark my words. The situation in Egypt has only deteriorated since the WC and only a figure like Salah could save Sisi's Presidency. #ادعم_صلاح
