Mo Salah's Dispute with the EFA Likely to Resolve

Egypt Sports Minister to intervene in EFA-Salah dispute

Worry That Mohamed Salah May Miss World Cup Due To Egyptian FA Dispute

Premier League leading scorer Mohamed Salah said on Sunday he is insulted over the unauthorized use of his image and blames the Egyptian Football Association in a dispute that comes less than two months before the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Especially since Egypt is going to participate in the 2018 World Cup", Elaziz tweeted hours after Salah's. "I was hoping dealings would be classier than this", he wrote.

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.

Last week the Egyptian's agent warned there was a "very serious issue" with the Egyptian Football Association over the Liverpool star's image rights.

Salah is represented by Ramy Abbas, who is both his lawyer and agent.

Hany Abu Reda, called Sunday Egyptian International Mohamed Salah, where he promised that the EFA will not cause any troubles for the Liverpool's Egyptian forward.

Trump has complained bitterly about how Jackson was treated, and defended him as a good man who did not deserve such treatment. Several reports say he's accused of promoting a hostile work environment, drinking on the job and overprescribing medication.

However, Egypt's Youth and Sports Minister Khaled Abd Abdel-Aziz said he is communicating with all of the concerned parties to solve the dispute. He added, "Salah is an example to follow for all Egyptian youth. he loves his country, a honest and a ideal representative for Egypt in Europe". He argued that EFA and its sponsor, the advertising agency, Presentation, needed to obtain written consent from MS Commercial (Cayman) before using the image.

However, Elaziz said he would make sure Salah "gets everything he needs" and would ensure he fulfils all of his contracts.

Maher Shtayeh, the mayor of Nagrig, told AFP: "Mohamed loves his village a lot".

Salah has donated money to buy hospital equipment, renovate schools and build an ambulance unit in his village.

The Egyptian tweeted on Sunday that he felt "insulted" by his home country's football association and how they dealt with an image rights conflict.
