Liverpool superstar slams Egyptian FA over image rights dispute

Jurgen Klopp has praised Roberto Firmino after the Brazilian signed a new five-year contract

Egypt and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah said on Sunday that the dispute with the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) over his image rights will be resolved soon.

The Sun is reporting that the Reds are set to open talks with the Egypt global about a new deal at Anfield following his sparkling debut campaign at the Merseyside club.

Salah has been left frustrated in his bid to resolve a situation whereby his image features on Egypt's official team plane for the upcoming World Cup.

Salah, who has been rampant for Liverpool this season, notably against AS Roma in last week's first-leg Champions League semi-final, is now football's hottest property.

Salah, the Premier League's top goalscorer, has his own sponsorship deal with rival telecommunications firm Vodafone. "Sorry but this is a major insult ..."

Ramy Abbas, Salah's agent, said he was waiting for a response from Egyptian officials. "I was hoping the deal would be classier than this", Salah tweeted on Sunday.

"We'll be in touch with all associated parties to solve the issue, especially that the Egyptian national team is preparing for the World Cup", he wrote on Twitter. "Nothing! Complete silence!" he tweeted.

But on Sunday Egypt's Minister of Youth and Sports Khaled Abd Elaziz announced that "an agreement has been reached" with the football association "to carry out all the requests" by Salah.

According to the EFA's official statement, Abou-Rida declared they will solve any problem that is bothering the player who guided Egypt to their first World Cup since 1990. "Mohamed Salah is an idol for Egyptian youth, loving and loyal to his homeland and represents his country in Europe in the best way".

Salah's tweet went viral on social media and Egyptian fans launched a twitter hashtag, #Support_Mohamed_Salah to show solidarity with their beloved player. Salah expressed his disappointment over the way things have been handled.
