The Egyptian team is a problem for Liverpool. Homeland invites Mohamed Salah to the African Cup and Olympics.
Not just Liverpool does need Mohamed Salah. The Egyptian team needs Mo even more. The good news for Jürgen Klopp is that Salah Liverpool may be missing for quite some time next year.
The fact is that Salah is invited to the Egyptian national team for two big tournaments – the Olympics and the African Cup. The Egyptians have once again claimed that Salah is one of the three players they plan to take to the Olympics with 23-year-olds.
“Yes, our goal and desire are to bring Mohamed Salah to the Olympics. “We really want the coaches, the football federation and the fans,” said Shevki Gharib, head coach of the Egyptian U23 team, in an interview with Al-Ahram newspaper.
The Olympic Games are scheduled for this time from July 23 to August 8. If Salah participates in the Olympics, it turns out that he will miss the initial rounds of the Premier League. However, no one knows exactly what the football calendar will be like at that time. Maybe the Coronavirus pandemic will change a lot again. The Africa Cup of Nations is scheduled for early 2022 in Cameroon – from January 9 to February 6. In the worst case, Liverpool will miss not only Salah but also Senegalese Sadio Mane and Guinean Naby Keita in this period of time.
