Salah Set For Club-Vs-Country Row?

With Mohamed Salah set to be named in Egypt's squad for the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo, the African superstar could find himself in the middle of a heated debate between Liverpool and his country.

It was confirmed on the weekend that the 28-year-old will be one of the overage players named in Egypt's upcoming Olympics squad.

This is likely to see Salah miss pre-season with the Reds ahead of the 2021/22 season, as well as the start of next season's Premier League campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, this could cause an issue between Egypt and Liverpool, especially with there reportedly having been no discussion between the two parties to date.

The postponed Olympics is scheduled to take place between late July and early August, with Egypt U23 manager Shawky Gharib stating that it is "normal" that Salah, being one of the best players in the world, is called upon.

"Egypt Under 23s team's preliminary squad will be led by Mohamed Salah and Mohamed El-Shenawy alongside another goalkeeper," he said on Egyptian TV, as quoted by Ahram Online.  

"Salah is currently one of the most important players in the world and it's normal to call him for Egypt's Olympic squad.

"We will start the official talks with Liverpool after the international break next March."

Liverpool 'Line Up' Klopp's Successor

There is a feeling Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp might not want to let Salah join up with his country for the tournament due to the poor season the Reds have had by their standards.
