Salah, Egyptian FA at loggerheads

Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has hit out at the Egyptian Football Association as his image rights row rumbles on. The Reds' 43-goal top scorer and Ramy Abbas, his lawyer and agent, have been frustrated in their attempts to resolve the dispute ahead of June's World Cup in Russia. They are fuming that Salah's image features prominently on the outside of the national team's official plane which is being provided by official sponsor 'WE'.  The player has his own individual sponsorship deal with rival telecommunications firm Vodafone but the Egyptian FA have refused to back down. Salah tweeted yesterday: "Unfortunately the way to deal with it is a very big insult... I was hoping the deal would be classier than this." It is unclear whether Salah means he could threaten to withdraw from the Egypt squad. Abbas has previously stated that "all options are on the table". Abbas said on Saturday that he had been waiting over a week for a response from the Egyptian FA to what he has described as "a very serious issue".
