- The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has written to Fifa for an explanation of its missing votes for the Best Fifa Men’s Player award.
The EFA says that Pharaohs’ acting coach Shawky Gharib and captain Ahmed Elmohamady placed votes for Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah that were not counted.
Neither are included on the voting breakdown on Fifa’s website.
Since the awards ceremony Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has removed ‘Egypt’ from his Twitter profile.
His profile now simply reads:
“Footballer for Liverpool FC.”
He also posted a Tweet which translates as:
“Whatever they do to try to change my love for Egypt, they will not succeed.”
