Salah “faint” in Cameroon .. many reasons for his modest appearance
The “Pharaohs” team performed poorly in 3 matches, scoring two goals in two shy victories over Guinea-Bissau and Sudan.

But the biggest question mark falls on the star Mohamed SalahOne of the best players in the world right now, and the Premier League’s top scorer.

Salah is in name only

The “King of Numbers”, Mohamed Salah, failed to register his presence strongly in African NationsAnd issued a single statistic during the tournament, which is the player with the most wrong touches in the tournament, with 20 touches.

This small statistic reflects Salah’s condition in general in the tournament, his mistakes and confusion overshadowed his brilliance, which we were witnessing week after week with Liverpool.

This situation prompted many Egyptian football fans to criticize Salah, who some described as being present in name only.


The outward appearance of the Egyptian star gave a lot of evidence. The Egyptian star appeared resentful and upset, with the movements of his body and hands, during most of the Egyptian team’s attacks in the tournament.

Salah appeared admonishing his colleagues, shaking his head, and sometimes shouting nervously, in clips that represented the negative psychological state facing the international star in the Egyptian team shirt.

lackluster performance

Despite the humility of his opponents, and his defenses far below those he faces in England and Europe, Salah failed to appear well, even on an individual level.

Perhaps the most prominent description of the Egyptian star’s condition is the “lack of passion”, which appeared on him in the meetings, as if he was not fighting for the ball and not trying to give everything he had, just enough to win.

Perhaps one of the most prominent reasons that may push him to appear “conservatively” is the pressures placed on him by German coach Jurgen Klopp, his coach at Liverpool.

Klopp has always criticized the African Championship, because of its sensitive timing, and Liverpool’s need for its African stars.

These public pressures, and the other of them behind the scenes, made Salah afraid of an injury that would keep him away from Liverpool, which is at a sensitive time of the season.

As for the other pressures, it is the signing of the new contract with Liverpool, which appears to have been postponed until after the African Championship.

The renewal of Salah’s contract with his high demands, may be affected in the event of injury, and his departure from playing, so the pressure is great on him in this regard to return to England with minimal damage.

Between Salah and the golden generation

The comparison was made by the masses, between Salah’s performance, and the performance of the stars of the “golden generation” of the Egyptian national team in the 2000s, such as Mohamed Aboutrika, Mohamed Zidan, Ahmed Hassan and others.

The comparison always favors the stars of the golden generation, who were keen to shine at their highest level, when playing in the African Nations Championship, which Salah could not provide.

Despite the technical problems that the “Pharaohs” team suffers from, the “Egyptian King” Salah, even failed to convince the broad masses, that he is trying everything he has, individually and collectively, to keep hope of achieving good results that satisfy them.
