Mohamed Salah calls for change after Egypt’s poor World Cup

ROSTOV-ON-DON: Egyptian star Mohamed Salah has given his first public indication of his disagreement with his country’s soccer federation over the team’s use of Chechnya as a base during their ill-fated World Cup campaign.
Salah had remained publicly silent on the choice of Grozny, the Chechen capital, as the team’s base and his anger that he was used as a political symbol by Chechnya’s strongman Ramzan Kadyrov, who faces accusations of human rights violations in the predominantly Muslim Russian region.
“Some might think it’s over but it isn’t over. There needs to be change,” the 26-year-old Salah wrote cryptically on his Twitter account late Sunday.
