Salah 'insulted' by ongoing image rights dispute with Egyptian FA

Posted May 01, 2018

However, only a day after first choice striker Roberto Firmino penned a new long term deal with Liverpool, reports are emerging that Salah is next.

The 25-year-old mentioned the situation on Twitter earlier.

The 25-year-old, who was last month crowned the Premier League's Players' Player of the Year, becomes the first African victor of the FWA accolade, which has been awarded since 1948. The sponsor is WE, which is a direct conflict with Salah's sponsorship deal with rival telecoms giant Vodafone.

Officials at Egypt's soccer association did not respond to repeated phone calls seeking comment.

Hikers killed in Dead Sea flash floods
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it a "disaster" and said he was being updated regularly by those conducting the search. The main question being asked was why the group had chose to continue with the hike in an area known for flash floods.

The Liverpool forward, who is top goalscorer in the Premier League, pipped Kevin De Bruyne to the award by fewer than 20 votes, with the pair receiving over 90% of the total votes between them.

He said they have been waiting on the Egyptian officials to contact them or give a soothing response as to why they did what they did and how they intend going about a resolution but have heard nothing from them until then.

Although it would be a major shock if the PFA Player of the Year actually withdrew from Egypt's World Cup squad in protest about the Egyptian FA's conduct, Abbas has previously claimed that "all options are on the table".

"We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised!"

The dispute erupts two months before Egypt open their World Cup campaign with a match against Uruguay, ending their 28-year wait for a place in the world's most prestigious football tournament.
