Liverpool star Mo Salah's agent responds to latest Egypt Olympics selection reports

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool will expect to go into the 2020-21 season as Premier League champions, with Klopp's side now 22 points clear of Manchester City with 13 games remaining. But we have to take into consideration various points.

The coach of Egypt's U23 side, Shawky Gharib, intends to include Salah as one of the team's three over-age players but he admits he can not force him to accept a call-up to the national side.

"I wish we could have the whole squad together for pre-season which is not possible for different reasons - the Euro's coming up, Copa America again".

"We are completely clear about what we want, but we need more information: how will it look, when will the preparation start, all that stuff", he added.

If we lose Mo for the first couple of weeks of the season it is not a disaster by any stretch of the imagination. All the favorable points I might claim concerning Mo I have actually stated in the past.

"We haven't taken a decision yet".

"We will certainly have to see just how we manage it. We cannot actually review it actually since we do not recognize anything concerning it, or otherwise a whole lot concerning it".

Salah was part of the Liverpool team which won the Champions League last season and they are now runaway leaders in the Premier League with the Egyptian their top scorer on 14 goals.

A third user commented: "Controversial I know but if Sancho and [Timo] Werner are available this summer I'd personally sell Salah".

Salah is an advertising and marketing desire and also the club's proprietors will most definitely desire him to fly the flag for the brand name on any type of pre-season trips.

However, Salah's agent Ramy Abbas says "no decision has been made yet" over his involvement.
