Wigan Athletic skipper Sam Morsy praised Mohamed Salah’s professionalism and talked about their relationship in the national team.

Morsy was a regular in the Egyptian national team under former manager Hector Cuper and even represented the Pharaohs during the 2018 World by making a 40-minutes appearance against Uruguay.

However, since the Argentine’s departure, the 28-year-old was called-up just twice under Javier Aguirre and has failed to return since November 2018.

Morsy discussed Salah’s work ethic and talked about the different activities they used to do to pass time during the national team camp.

“The conversations I’ve had with Salah about his training regime are phenomenal,” said Morsy

“The way football goes at any level means you have to sacrifice a lot for your trade.

“But the guys at the top level have to give everything. It’s their whole lives, they are 24-hour-a-day athletes.

“Salah is relentless. The top boys are. They work harder than everyone else. I remember seeing him and thinking to myself, ‘Wow, you’re miles off it’.

“This guy is a superstar and works that hard. That’s what you have to do at that level. Being around these  players, it is inspiring.

“He’s a really nice, friendly guy. He’s always laughing and joking, always playing games. He’s very relaxed, there’s no ego. He absolutely loves his profession and Liverpool.

“He’s very competitive. Ping-pong, pool, chess — he’s one of those people who want to be the best at everything.

“We’ve played a few games of chess. I beat him the first game and he  battered me all the rest!” He added.

The former Port Vale midfielder also believes that he’s the only one capable of convincing new national team manager Hossam El-Badry to call him up to their next camp.

“In that period where I wasn’t there, he [Javier Aguirre] gave other players a chance to impress and I ended up not going.

“There’s now a new manager who I believe has been watching me, so it’s up to me to grasp any opportunity,” he concluded.

Egypt haven’t had the strongest start under El-Badry, as despite having won all of their friendly encounters they were held to two consecutive draws against Kenya and Comoros. They now sit third in Group G of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
