Abd Elaziz, this afternoon, decided to solve the current issue between Salah and the EFA.
"We will communicate with all the parties to solve the crisis; especially since Egypt is going to participate in the 2018 World Cup. In addition to that, Mohamed Salah is an idol for the Egyptian youth, loving and loyal to his homeland and represents his country in Europe in the best way," Khaled Abd Elaziz posted on Twitter.

Salah is facing, along with his agent Ramy Abbas, a problem with the EFA concerning the use of his photo on the Egyptian national team’s airplane without his permission.
“Unfortunately, the way they dealt with us is a very big insult; I wished for better treatment,” Salah posted a tweet on Sunday.
بكل أسف طريقة التعامل فيها إهانة كبيرة جدًا.. كنت أتمنى التعامل يكون أرقى من كدا...— Mohamed Salah (@MoSalah) April 29, 2018
Salah’s tweet went viral on social platforms; it is reported that he posted the tweet after being ignored by the EFA.
The EFA previously revealed the letter sent to Ramy Abbas, on April 2, in response to the use of Salah’s image in commercials without permission.
Ramy Abbas threatened the EFA, in an official letter, that he will take legal actions to protect Salah’s rights, which have been violated.
Egyptian football fans launched a hasthag on Twitter named “SupportSalah” showing support to their favorite player who brought joy with his goals for Liverpool and the Egyptian national team.
Salah is like a God in Liverpool and England, but does he get the same treatment in Egypt?
