Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian football star who is a forward for Premier League club Liverpool, has deactivated his Twitter account after posting a cryptic tweet on Tuesday that read, “2019 Resolution: Time to get in touch, for real.”
As of Wednesday, his Twitter account '@MoSalah' seems to have been deleted, and his fans are left to wonder why.
Some speculate it’s a late New Year resolution while others think the move comes from a previous dispute Salah had with the Egyptian Football Association.
The player’s agent has been involved in a row with the Egyptian 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.
However, deleting his Twitter account could also mean that Salah wishes to be less active on social media although his Instagram account is still active.
