Liverpool: Fans react to Mohamed Salah’s involvement at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics with Egypt - Liverpool

Loads of Liverpool fans have had their say on Mohamed Salah’s involvement in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after Egypt U23 manager Shawky Gharib announced that he has been shortlisted to play.

The 27-year-old is on Egypt’s provisional 50-man list for the summer tournament in Eastern Asia, which will run from July 24th to August 8th if his country reaches the final of the competition. This also takes place on the opening day of the 2020/21 Premier League season. Gharib told Reuters (cited by BBC Sport) that they cannot force Salah to play for them next summer but it will ultimately come down to the player himself and Liverpool to decide whether he competes.

Gharib’s comments got plenty of supporters talking. Despite his absence from the team’s pre-season preparations, some fans were not too concerned as you can see below.

Others were not so laid back about the situation, stating that the club that he plays for should be a priority and not his country and the Olympic Games.

Incredibly, these fans even suggested that Liverpool should sell Salah if he went to Tokyo and also due to his involvement in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Since his arrival from Roma in 2017 for £34m, he has been a goalscoring sensation with 89 goals in just 137 appearances. As a result, he has become a hero on Merseyside and even finished 5th in the 2019 Ballon d’Or listings. The £135m-rated man has broken many records since his move from the Italian capital and created an eternal legacy at the club following his achievements.
