Cuper refuses to offer advice to Salah ahead of Champions League final
The Egypt international is currently preparing for the final showdown of the 2018 UEFA Champions League between Real Madrid and Liverpool in Kiev on Saturday.

The 62-year-old Argentine coach revealed that the new faces that were included in the national team squad will take part in the Pharaohs’ friendlies ahead of the global showpiece event.
“I have a group of a wonderful players who believe in the technical staff. I’ll try to do some changes ahead of the World Cup,” Cuper added.
