The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) revealed on Monday that Liverpool has clearly refused to release Mohamed Salah for Egypt’s World Cup qualifiers due to coronavirus restrictions. Mohamed Salah was the first Egyptian player who became a Premier League champion after joining Liverpool in 2018 from Roma. He won the Premier League’s Golden Boot award twice.

The EFA announced this in a statement posted on its social media, “The Egyptian Football Association had received a letter from Liverpool apologizing for the inability of its player, Mohamed Salah, to join the national team for next month’s African qualifiers for the World Cup.”

The letter of Liverpool reveals all the precautionary measures taken in England to stop the outbreak of coronavirus. These measures are forcing returnees to go through mandatory health isolation for 10 days upon their return to England.

The EFA also mentioned, “In its letter, the English club also expressed its hope that the Egyptian association would understand that it was forced to do so, in the face of the player being subjected to a quarantine.”

Since Egypt falls into Britain’s red list, therefore the 29-year-old needs to quarantine after his return from Cairo. Hence he will end up missing 2 Premier League matches.

Salah tasted positive for coronavirus in November. He visited Cairo to attend his brother’s wedding and at that time he tested positive.
