He added, “It is a period he is going through and it is not easy to return from Africa (after what happened with the Egyptian national team), he had a lot of pressure on his shoulders, it just needs to be stable, everything is fine.”
He continued: “Both boys (Mohamed Salah and Mane) came back from Africa, it’s not really easy, there was pressure on them, both of them should have led their countries, their coach was part of that too, because of the pressure on them.”
