In a press conference Sunday before their match against Japan, Sadio Mané hinted that he was sad for Mohamed Salah. The Senegalese player revealed that he sent a message to Mo Salah before the start of the World Cup.
Egypt’s Pharaohs playmaker had an incredible season with Liverpool, scoring 44 goals in all competitions. He was also voted best player in the Premier League.
However, Mohamed Salah suffered a shoulder injury in the final of the Champions League in Kiev, a situation that had repercussions on his participation in the world. He missed the first match of the Pharaohs against Uruguay and could not prevent their second defeat against Russia.
Egypt is now out of the race, much to the disappointment of Mohamed Salah who probably had ambitions for this World Cup.
In a press conference Sunday before their match against Japan, Sadio Mané hinted that he was sad for Mohamed Salah.
“I sent him a message a week ago, he’s a player who really wanted to play during this World Cup. Unfortunately, he arrived suffering from an injury and I wished him the best, but he is a very strong guy mentally. “
“He really fought, he came back to help his country. Unfortunately, they failed but it’s football, you have to live with. I wish him all the best for the future and for the moment, it is normal that he has difficulties, it is football, “said Mané.
