– Mohamed Salah, has blasted the Egyptian FA for unauthorised usage of his picture on the side of the national team’s plane
– The Liverpool forward believes that they could be a clash with his image sponsorship deals
– And he will likely loose huge sum of money should this happens
Liverpool star forward, Mohamed Salah, has blasted the Egyptian FA for unauthorised usage of his picture on the side of the national team’s plane.
Middle East Eye report that the 25-year-old feels“insulted” not to have been asked whether their action brings him into conflict with any of his image rights deals.
Salah, who has hit 43 goals this season for Liverpool and is in the running for the Ballon d’Or, took to Twitter to express his dissatisfaction with the Egyptian FA via a posted in Arabic which reads: “Unfortunately, the way this has been dealt with is extremely insulting… I was hoping dealings would be classier than this.”
Salah has his own sponsorship deal with telecoms firm Vodafone.
Rival company “we”, the official sponsor of the Egyptian national team, provided the jet to the team.
The breach of that contract could potentially cost the Egyptian forward millions of dollars.
Salah’s agent and lawyer, Ramy Issa, said the image, as well as other advertisements, had not been authorised by his client.
In another tweet, Issa claimed that Salah’s image could not be used without written consent from the firm that owns the rights to the image.
Egypt are just over a month away from competing at the World Cup finals for the first time in 28 years and they will do well to stop the razzmatazz surrounding their top player spiralling out of control.
Salah is dubbed the “Egyptian King” by fans after scoring so many goals in all competitions for Liverpool and becoming PFA Player of the Year.
The Liverpool ace has also gained himself the nickname the “Happiness Maker” amongst Egyptian fans after a series of investments in his small hometown, Nagrig, a farming village in Gharbia.
NAIJ.com previously reported that In-form Liverpool star forward, Mohamed Salah has edged past Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne to be named the Football Writers’ Association player of the year.
De Bruyne came second with Tottenham striker Harry Kane coming third. 25-year-old Salah has scored 31 League goals in 34 league appearances for Liverpool this season and leads the race for the Premier League golden boot.
