Salah considering international retirement after World Cup – Report
Mohamed Salah is considering to retire from international football after the World Cup, according to the CNN.
The Liverpool winger is unhappy at what has happened in Egypt’s training World Cup base in Chechnya, after he was drawn into a political row.
A controversial picture of Mohamed Salah with Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov was taken before the World Cup, before Kadyrov made Salah an honorary citizen of the Russian republic last Friday.
“Mohamed Salah is an honorary citizen of the Chechen Republic! That’s right!” Kadyrov tweeted.
“I gave Mohamed Salah a copy of the order and a pin at a celebratory dinner that I gave in honour of the Egyptian team,” he added.
The CNN reports that Salah is thinking about international retirement as he believes he has been used politically against his will and “feels exposed by what has happened in Chechnya”, a source told the news network.
The 26-year-old didn’t feature in Egypt’s World Cup opener against Uruguay due to injury, before playing the full 90 minutes against Russia, scoring the Pharaohs’ only goal in a 3-1 loss.
This is not the first time Salah has fallen out with the EFA. as before the World Cup, the winger and his agent were involved in a dispute with the EFA over an image rights issue.
