Federation Internationale de Football Association declined to comment and neither Salah nor the Egyptian FA has issued a statement. Moreover, his rule has been marred by numerous reports of extrajudicial killings and torture in the republic which saw two separatist wars in the 1990s.
Salah, who has declared himself fit for the World Cup in Russian Federation this summer following his shoulder injury, has been vocal on his Reds future, with the attacker revealing he's happy at Anfield. Despite his lack of participation, Salah is still the main attraction with soccer fans in Grozny, where Egypt have based themselves for the tournament. "FIFA should reverse their decision and move the training camp to another city".

"He is doing (physiotherapy) sessions on his shoulder and working out in the gym", squad executive director Eihab Leheita said.
"He is gradually getting better".
Drogba, who played for Chelsea between 2004 and 2012, was the previous record holder on 29 goals but Salah scored 32 goals during last season's league campaign to supass the Ivorian's record.More news: Trump signs `comprehensive document' with Kim as summit ends
"But anyway we have a good team, well-organised and hopefully if Salah is not there to start the game hopefully the boys will do well". So I thought to myself, I have quite a few games to play before the end of the season, I can break the all-time record!
