Salah shares his views on Egyptian League future
Fiorentina’s Mohamed Salah has tonight tweeted some comments regarding the Egyptian Premier League and its recovery from yet another tragedy following the deaths of at least 22 Zamalek fans involved in clashes with police forces prior to and after their 1-1 draw with ENPPI on Monday.
The Egyptian, who recently moved to Fiorentina on loan from English Premier League leaders Chelsea, released a series of tweets commenting on the state of the league, its course of action, as well as advice directed to the general Egyptian public.
“Everyone is talking about resuming the league quickly, and that’s fine, but will the people get their justice quickly too?” Salah tweeted, stating in his next tweet: “I haven’t seen a single optimistic comment on the issue and the majority of commenters are young adults. Where is the optimism?”
كلو بيتكلم ان الدوري يرجع بسرعه ده تمام بس هو حق الناس اللي ماتت هيرجع بسرعه ؟؟

Following the tweets, Salah then had some advice for the general public, offering his opinion on how Egypt, and it’s footballing community can move on. He tweeted; “I’m stating what I can see. If every person wants this country to move forward then start with yourself. Check at the end of the day if your work has been positive or negative. I am saying this because every single successful person I’ve met and every book I’ve read say the same thing. I hope what I’ve said benefits, even if it’s just one person.”
The comments come at an extremely tense time for the Egyptian FA as well as the fans of the Egyptian Premier League following the deaths of at least 22 Zamalek fans earlier this week prior to and after their top of the table clash with ENPPI. The league has been suspended indefinitely.
Salah, who made his debut for Fiorentina on the weekend, has previously been fielded questions regarding politics and football in Egypt during press conferences. No doubt there will be more coming his way after the tragedy at the Air Defence Stadium.
