Liverpool star Mohamed Salah slammed for ‘negligence’ ahead of missing key Leicester clash

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been slammed by former Egypt striker Mido after he tested positive for coronavirus. Salah sat out of Egypt’s two matches against Togo during the international break after returning a positive test last Friday. He is now set to miss Liverpool’s Premier League match at home table-toppers Leicester City this Sunday.

Salah was filmed at his brother’s wedding just days before it was announced he had contracted the virus.

And former Tottenham star Mido is angry that the 28-year-old attended the wedding in the current climate.

Mido says Salah risked the health of his team-mates and deserves to be criticised for his actions.

“I know I may be under attack after my next talk, but it has to be,” Mido told Al-Nahar TV.

“Mohamed Salah made a big mistake by attending his brother’s wedding a few days before the Egyptian national team match.

“He showed great negligence with the steps taken to prevent coronavirus, and the result was that he was infected.

“The neglect of Mohamed Salah caused the Egyptian team to lose an important player in a very important match and time, and he also risked the health of his team-mates. He should not have been present at his brother’s wedding, especially at that time.

“The other point here is the silence of all those responsible for the player’s negligence, which confirms the fact that the player is still bigger than the national team and this will lead to a great failure.

“Officials in Egypt did not direct any word of blame or reproach to Mohamed Salah and the harm caused by his negligence to the Egyptian team, and I name each of the minister of sports Ashraf Sobhi, chairman of the EFA Amr Al-Ganayni, the coach of the national team Hossam Al-Badri, and the national team director Mohamed Barakat, all are cowards and fear Mohamed Salah fans who love the Liverpool star.

“But here I am speaking without calculations or fear of anyone. No one can say that Salah did not make a mistake by going to his brother’s wedding at that difficult time and in light of the coronavirus crisis.

“All the English newspapers speak against us negatively, Salah should have been blamed for what he did, but everyone feels fear.”

Salah tweeted a message to supporters on Tuesday evening, thanking them for their messages.

He wrote: “I’d like to thank everyone for the supportive messages and well wishes. I’m confident I’ll be back on the field soon.”
