Mohamed Salah loves to play for Egypt, EFA refute fallout rumours

The Egyptian Football Association have confirmed that Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will return to the national team normally in June.

The Pharaohs are set to begin a new era under Hossam Hassan as they look to recover from a disappointing run in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Egypt are set to take part in the Winsunited Cup during the March break in the UAE alongside Tunisia, Croatia, and New Zealand.

However, there has been controversy around Mohamed Salah, who is currently out due to injury with his last appearance for the Reds coming in a 1-1 home draw with Man City.

Despite his return, it has now been confirmed that Salah will remain at Liverpool after being left out of Hossam Hassan’s squad.

Speaking on the matter, EFA board member Walid El-Attar said: “There was communication between Liverpool, the EFA, and Mohamed Salah. There was also an exchange of official letters in which Salah’s full injury condition was explained.

“Official communication is the most important, and this is what happened between Liverpool and the EFA. Personally, I had a phone call with Mohamed Salah.

“The general idea is that Salah needs to return to the pitch gradually, and this is already happening with Liverpool. He needs continuous monitoring with the medical team.

Salah will be absent from the upcoming Egyptian national team camp, but he will be present normally during the international break in June, which is the most important, as we will play World Cup qualifiers during that time.

“Mohamed Salah does not at all object to joining the Egyptian national team at any time. On the contrary, Salah loves to play for Egypt.

“Everyone in the EFA and the Egyptian national team aims to promote the interest of the national team, as well as Mohamed Salah.”
