English report: Liverpool rejects Mohamed Salah's participation in the Olympics because of Euro 2020

The English newspaper “Daily Star” revealed that it is unlikely that Liverpool star Mohamed Salah will participate with our national team in this year’s Summer Olympics in Tokyo, as his club expects the player to be part of the group preparing for the new season at this time.

Shawky Gharib, coach of the Olympic national team, is awaiting the final position of Mohamed Salah before announcing the over-aged trio participating in the Olympics, who will be the Reds star at their head if an agreement is reached with Liverpool.

And the newspaper “Daily Star”, today, Friday, that the coach, Jurgen Klopp, believes that players not participating in the Euro 2020 tournament or the Copa America should be available for the pre-season period on July 12, and the club has already rejected France’s request to allow newcomer Ibrahim Konate To play in the Olympics next month.

Salah is expected to miss Liverpool in the middle of the season due to his participation in the African Cup of Nations with his team, and the Reds do not want to lose him at the beginning of the season, as Liverpool are likely to also lose Sadio Mane and Naby Keita for the duration of the African continental championship.

The newspaper pointed out that the official decision is not yet clear regarding Salah’s participation in the Olympic Games, but Klopp and Liverpool’s position is clear about Salah and he does not want to lose him during the Olympics as well as during the African Nations Cup.

While Liverpool have no choice but to accept Salah's participation in the African Nations Cup, they can not agree to his participation in the Olympics, because it is not a competition organized by FIFA.
