Mohamed Salah’s problems with the Egyptian FA have been well documented.

Salah has been linked with a very premature international retirement due to his issues with Egypt’s footballing body and there doesn’t appear to be any resolution in sight.

The Liverpool talisman hit out at the Egyptian FA yet again on Sunday night, claiming that his attempts at opening a dialogue have gone ignored.

الطبيعي أن أي اتحاد كرة يسعى لحل مشاكل لاعبيه حتى يوفروا له الراحة.. لكن في الحقيقة ما أراه عكس ذلك تمامًا.. ليس من الطبيعي أن يتم تجاهل رسائلي ورسائل المحامي الخاص بي … لا أدري لماذا كل هذا؟ أليس لديكم الوقت الكافي للرد علينا؟!

“Naturally any football association should seek to solve the problems of its players until they provide comfort.. But really what I see is exactly the opposite,” Salah tweeted.

“It is not natural that my letters and my lawyer’s letters are ignored… I don’t know why this is. Don’t you have enough time to answer us?!”

Salah fell out with the organisation over the summer because of a disagreement over the use of his image rights by the Egyptian FA ahead of the World Cup in Russia.

Reports claimed that the 26-year-old was unhappy to see his image used on a national team plane without his consent.

Salah’s representative, Ramy Abbas, complained about that problem in April and echoed the player’s frustration this weekend.

We have not even been contacted for a resolution! Nothing! Complete silence! What’s the plan?! We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised! What effect do they think this is having? A good one?! Anyway, time is of the essence…

Salah was also said to be angry about a picture of himself and Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov which went viral in the days leading up to the World Cup and felt like he was being used as a political pawn.

It remains to be seen what the future holds for Salah and his national team but there is a clear disconnect that needs to be addressed.
