‘He Has Done Nothing For Egypt”-Pharoah’s Ex-Coach Slams Mo Salah
Hassan Shehata, a former Egypt coach, has slammed captain Mohamed Salah, claiming that the Liverpool forward has made no contribution to the Pharaohs.
Salah is Egypt’s most famous footballer, having won every possible title with Liverpool over the last five years.
The Liverpool forward goal-scoring prowess places him among the world’s best players, but the 30-year-record old’s with Egypt hasn’t convinced Shehata.
The erstwhile coach, who led Egypt to three consecutive AFCON titles before stepping down months before Salah’s debut, believes the attacker should have done more.
Shehata told Egypt Independent (via Goal): “Technically, and I’m sorry to say this, but Mohamed Salah [has done] nothing with the national team. He should have done much better than that. He must provide more when he plays for his country.”
He added: “He should have said this to the officials here. Although he is not the one who chooses the players, he should have said that the players here are not like the players in England. Therefore, the coaches have to find a way to open the space for Salah. We must find players to help him appear properly on the pitch.”
