Mohamed Salah: The Egyptian national team was very often distracted during their stay in Grozny

Liverpool and Egyptian national team’s forward Mohamed Salah spoke about the difficulties he and the national team faced at the base in Grozny during the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“I asked for more protection for all players of the national team, not just for myself. We were very often distracted during our stay in Russia at the World Cup. Twice I could not go out to the restaurant, because I was told that I could not go down from the hotel for security reasons. There was a crowd of people there”, – quotes Salah The Guardian.

The Egyptian added that he was often distracted by guests who came into the room and wanted to talk.

After the end of the World Cup CNN reported that Salah intends to leave the team because of the politicization of his image in connection with the wide coverage of the meeting with the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov. In the team of Egypt this information was rejected.
