Liverpool refuses to join Salah in the national team .. and the Football Association requests an exception from FIFA


The Egyptian Football Association continues its continuous contacts with the International Football Association regarding facilitating the task of international players joining their national teams to participate in the World Cup qualifiers, which requires exempting them from travel restrictions imposed on them in the countries in which they play due to the Corona pandemic, so that they can join their national teams.

The Egyptian Football Association had received a letter from Liverpool FC apologizing for the inability of its player, Mohamed Salah, to join the national team in its next camp, which includes facing Angola in Cairo and Gabon in Franceville during the first and second rounds of the African continent’s qualifiers for the World Cup.

The English club’s letter referred to the precautionary measures applied in England to confront the outbreak of the Corona virus in the world, which puts returnees from some countries in compulsory health isolation for a period of ten days upon their return to England.

In his letter, the English club also expressed its hope that the Egyptian Federation would understand that it was forced to do so, in the face of the player being subjected to a quarantine for this period and being affected by this physically, as well as the uncertainty of the conditions of the place of the stone determined by the English authorities.

It is reported that Liverpool FC took the same position with a number of its foreign players.
