Mo Salah posts angry tweet, demands answers from Egyptian Football Association
Football star Mohamed Salah posted an angry tweet on Sunday, demanding answers from the Egyptian Football Association pertaining to an image rights issue earlier this year.
The player’s agent has been involved in a row with the country’s FA after they used his image on the national team’s plane during the World Cup in June, clashing with Salah’s contract with his sponsor, telecommunications giant Vodafone, which holds exclusive rights to using his image.
“It would be normal for any football association to seek solutions for its players’ problems to comfort them… But actually what I see is the complete opposite... It is not normal for my messages and my lawyer’s messages to be ignored... I do not know why all of this? Don’t you have enough time to respond to us?!” Salah wrote in Arabic on his official Twitter account.
This is not the first time that Salah publicly expressed his anger over the issue. The player had previously tweeted that he considered the association ignoring the issue a “major insult”.
Many Egyptian fans took to social media to express their support for the star player, citing corruption in the country’s sports institutions.
