Will Mohamed Salah (27) compete in the Olympic Games with the Egyptian selection? The Egyptian striker from Liverpool, who has already scored fourteen Premier League goals, is said to be considering joining the Olympics with the Pharaohs from July 22 to August 8.
An option confirmed by the Egyptian hopeful selector Shawky Gharib. He has confirmed that he would like to be able to count on the Reds star for the tournament.
Of the three senior players we will call, Salah is the only one we have decided on so far because he is simply one of the top three players in the world. I didn’t talk to Salah about joining the team for the Games at all, but in all honesty, participating in the Games will also require a little effort on his part,” said Gharib on ON Sport.
On the Liverpool side, Jürgen Klopp has already spoken on the subject. The German manager of the Reds was not particularly excited by a possible participation of Mohamed Salah in the Olympic Games.
