Salah and the Egyptian Football Association have endured a fractured relationship over the past few years, and the 27-year-old has seemingly been dealt another slight after being overlooked for the captain's armband.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Ahmed Fathi has been retained as the Pharaohs' captain after the veteran defender reportedly refused to relinquish his role within the national team.

Head coach Hossam El-Badry, who assumed the role after Egypt's disappointing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign, has now confirmed that Salah will not be the nation's new captain.

"The decision of the armband is the responsibility of the manager," El-Badry said.

"There are no problems between Salah and Fathi. In the end, we decided the armband will go to the oldest player."
