Chechen President Kadyrov: Salah is currently the best player in the world
The Liverpool winger didn’t take part in the team’s first open training session in Russia, as he is still recovering from a shoulder injury suffered in the Reds’ Champions League final loss to Real Madrid late in May.
“Mohamed Salah is a great player and also a great human being. He is the best player in the world right now,” the Chechen leader said as he accompanied the 25-year-old player to Egypt’s training session.
Kadyrov replied a question about the importance of hosting the Egyptian national team in Chechen, saying that his country is honored to host the Pharaohs and that they will aim to provide the team with everything they need as they prepare for the World Cup.
Egypt, who will be making their first World Cup appearance in 28 years, will kick off their World Cup group stage campaign against Uruguay at the Ekaterinburg Arena on June 15. They will play against hosts Russia at the Saint Petersburg Stadium four days later and will face Saudi Arabia in their final group game at the Volgograd Arena on June 25.
