Salah considering retiring from national team

Posted June 25, 2018

After initially clashing over the improper use by the Egyptian FA of Salah's image rights, the former Roma and Chelsea man has reportedly expressed his displeasure at being "used politically and is [now] considering ending his affiliation with the Egyptian national team as a result".

Salah is claimed to be assessing his future, following what has turned into something of a debacle at Egypt's training base in Grozny, the capital of the Chechen Republic.

CNN's John Sinnott and Alireza Hajihosseini report that Salah "feels exposed" by the events and does not want to be used for political gain.

Kadyrov, a highly controversial leader, made Salah an honorary citizen of the Chechen Republic.

"It is a deserved honour", Kadyrov wrote on social media, adding that Salah's presence had ignited "unprecedented interest in football" in the region.

He is nearly equally disdainful of House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI): "Ryan traded his political soul for. a tax cut". Immigrants like Ever Castillo and Diva Funes were among those affected by the mixed signals from the U.S.

After his prolific scoring helped Liverpool to a Champions League final, Salah was equally instrumental in guiding Egypt to this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation. Given the vocal Tweets from his agent, Ramy Abbas Issa, it's at the very least clear that all is not well in the Salah camp. He is eating and laughing with his team-mates. Egypt have no chance of advancing to the World Cup knockout stage.

Salah, who hit 44 goals for Liverpool in his debut season, suffered the injury in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid when Sergio Ramos wrestled him to the floor.

Salah is also unhappy that he's been dragged into issues beyond football and there is considerable friction with the Egypt FA, who had been locked in an image rights row with his representatives before the tournament.

But his global future will now be under consideration as a result of the events in Chechnya during the tournament.
