Mohamed Salah and the Tokyo Olympics .. the latest developments in the “difficult file”


The President of the Egyptian Football Association, Ahmed Megahed, revealed the latest developments related to the position of the Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah, from playing for his country in the Tokyo Olympics.

Mujahid said in a press statement, “Our contacts with Liverpool have not stopped, and we are seeking their approval for Salah to join the Olympic team.”

And he indicated that, “Despite the absence of a final response from Liverpool, we pin our hopes on obtaining their approval. Salah’s presence with the Olympic team is very important,” according to the Spanish newspaper “AS”.

Mujahid told Reuters that there is still plenty of time before the deadline to send the final squad list for the tournament, as all participating teams must submit their final squad of 30 players by June 30.

And the coach of the Egyptian Olympic team, Shawky Gharib, had revealed last March that Salah’s participation in the Olympics was a “triple decision.”

Gharib said at the time in an interview with Agence France-Presse, “The decision to join Mohamed Salah in the national team is a triple decision, first a technical decision from me personally, then an administrative decision from Liverpool FC and its German coach Jurgen Klopp, and then the player’s desire to participate with us in the Olympics.”

He added, “Salah’s joining the national team in the Olympics is a move by the state, represented by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Football Association and the technical staff, in search of an Olympic medal that will be the first in the history of Egyptian football’s participation in the Olympics.”

He continued: “Salah’s name as one of the three best players in the world will move the Pharaohs team to another position in the Olympics,” noting that “his presence will differentiate us a lot,” citing the role of the Brazilian Neymar da Silva, the French star of Paris Saint-Germain, in leading his country to obtain the Olympic gold.
