Military service causing problems for Chelsea’s Salah
Chelsea midfielder Mohamed Salah could find himself forced to return to Egypt to serve military duty due to a decision made by the Minister of Higher Education to rescind his registration for an education program.
The 22-year-old, who joined one of Egypt’s education institutes in order to obtain the ability to travel abroad, was dealt a blow today after his registration was cancelled by the Minister of Higher Education, possibly forcing him to return to his homeland to serve mandatory military service.
This decision could prevent Salah from travelling outside Egypt if he was to return, something that could threaten his future with the Blues.
Egyptian footballing legend and the current National Team director Ahmed Hassan commented on the situation regarding Salah, stating that he has been in contact with the Chelsea winger via phone.
“Salah has expressed his shock about the decision. He told me that he is trying to represent Egypt in the best way possible. Is this the best response from the country?”
It has been mentioned that a meeting will be held between the Egyptian national team coaching staff headed by Shawky Gharib together with members of the Egyptian Football Association and the Minister of Higher Education to find a solution to this dilemma.
