Mohamed Salah is reportedly angry with the Egyptian FA after they failed to vote for him in the 2019 FIFA’s Best awards held in Milan, Italy on Monday.
The Liverpool forward who finished fourth in the men’s Best Player award sparked controversy after removing all references to the Egypt National Team from his social media accounts on Tuesday.
Captain Ahmed Elmohamady and Olympic team coach Shawky Ghareeb did not cast their votes while journalist Hany Danial picked Salah’s Liverpool teammate Sadio Mane and Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of the 27-year-old.
According to UK newspaper, Daily Mail, a major investigation is now underway in Egypt after Elmohamady and Ghareeb revealed they voted for Salah, but they were not registered towards the count.
The recent development, meanwhile, rises fears the forward could cut all ties with the Egyptian FA after the two parties were embroiled in another dispute a few months ago.
