Mohamed Salah has been labelled ‘negligent’ and the Egyptian FA ‘cowards’ by Mido after the Liverpool star tested positive for coronavirus last week.

It was confirmed by the Egyptian FA that Salah had tested positive for Covid-19 last Friday.

The 28-year-old was on international duty with his country when the positive result came back and the subsequent self-isolation means he has missed games for Egypt and will sit out Liverpool’s clash with Leicester at the weekend.

Salah tested positive for Covid just days after he had attended his brother’s wedding, from which videos emerged of a large party and no social distancing.

Mido is furious that Salah put himself in a position to contract coronavirus and that Egyptian officials have not punished him more heavily for doing so.

‘I know I may be under attack after my next comments, but it has to be that way,’ Mido told Al-Nahar TV.

Mohamed Salah made a big mistake by attending his brother’s wedding a few days before the Egyptian national team match, he showed great negligence with the steps taken to prevent the coronavirus and the result was that he was infected.

‘The neglect of Mohamed Salah caused the Egyptian team to lose an important player in a very important match and time, and he also risked the health of his team-mates.

‘He should not have been present at his brother’s wedding, especially at that time. The wedding included more than 800 people, and half of them accepted to embrace and kiss Salah.’

Mido, who played in England for Tottenham, Middlesbrough, Wigan and Barnsley went in heavily on the hierarchy of Egyptian football, accusing them of being too scared to act against their biggest star.

‘The other point here is the silence of all those responsible for the player’s negligence, which confirms the fact that the player is still bigger than the national team and this will lead to a great failure,’ he said.

‘Officials in Egypt did not direct any word of blame or reproach to Mohamed Salah and the harm caused by his negligence to the Egyptian team, and I name each of the Minister of Sports Ashraf Sobhi, Chairman of the EFA Amr Al-Ganayni, the coach of the national team Hossam Al-Badri, and the national team director Mohamed Barakat, all are cowards and fear Mohamed Salah fans who love the Liverpool star, but here I am speaking without calculations or fear of anyone, and what is being said should be said to me.

‘No one can say that Salah did not make a mistake by going to his brother’s wedding at that difficult time and in light of the corona crisis, all the English newspapers speak against us negatively.

‘Salah should have been blamed for what he did, but everyone feels fear.’

Salah will miss Liverpool’s game with Leicester on Sunday, but could return for their Champions League clash with Atalanta on Wednesday 25 November.
