Ghana manager has cautioned Egyptian National Team about their reliance on , claiming that this may cause The Pharaohs problems in Russia.

Appiah has been appointed as Ghana’s National team manager following Avram Grant resignation from his job after 2017 CAF  African Cup of Nations.

The 57 year old has warned the Pharaohs about their dependence on the Liverpool winger, Mohamed Salah, believing they need to get him more players at a higher levels before going to Russia.

“We played Egypt but as I said, all the time all their attacking machinery is dependent on one player. This is not the best because once he is closed down, then this becomes a problem,” Appiah told Kwese Free Sports.

Liverpool’s winger has finished as African World Cup qualifiers top scorer, after scoring five times, including a brace against Congo that secures Egypt’s place in 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

“If they can work on some stuff and get two or three players that are playing at the highest level, then automatically team’s won’t plan only against Salah but for others as well.”

    Salah is by far the most famous but there is plenty of talent in this Egypt squad the world has not yet discovered and are unprepared for! Can’t wait for the WC.
