Diaa El-Sayed, the general coach of the Egyptian national team, revealed a message he received from Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, today, Friday.
Salah is now able to come to Egypt for the next international break, after it was removed from Britain’s red list for the Corona virus.
Diaa stated via Ontime Sports 1: “The first message I received after Egypt was removed from the red list was from Salah.”
He added: “He said to me: Praise be to God, Captain, and God willing, I will be able to transgress well.”
He continued, “He also contacted Mohamed Elneny and told me that he is close to returning and has a cup match on Wednesday.”
And Diaa Al-Sayed turned to discuss the position of Galatasaray striker Mustafa Muhammad on joining the next team’s camp.
The general coach of the Egyptian national team said: “We have a meeting tomorrow and we will discuss Mustafa Mohamed’s position in the presence of Ahmed Mujahid.”
He continued, “The incident did not occur during the era of the current body, and therefore we must see whether the administrative body requested or signed a penalty on him or not.”
“We will tell Queiroz exactly what happened. He is a coach with a very strong personality,” he said.
He explained, “Whether a penalty is imposed or not, we will come out and announce the situation in all transparency.”
Diaa El-Sayed touched on appointing Essam El-Hadary as a coach for the team’s goalkeepers: “The new El-Hadary version as a coach is very respectable.”
He continued, “He studied, conducted studies, attended co-habitations, and went through a training experience, and with his legendary value as a guard, I see him ready for the task.”
He revealed: “Queiroz told him that he was the most likely person to discuss him because he was also a goalkeeper, and Essam responded greatly to him. We will see a special version of El-Hadary, I bet on that.”
Egypt occupies second place in its World Cup qualifiers group with 4 points, behind Libya, which leads with 6 points.
Egypt will play Libya twice next October, a test that will be the first for the new technical staff led by Carlos Queiroz.
