Mohamed Salah published the first photo of his exercises, since his departure from the Egyptian team participating in the African Cup of Nations, and his return to his club, Liverpool.
The Egyptian star was injured in his country's match against Ghana, in the African Cup of Nations, a few days ago, and decided to travel to Liverpool to receive the necessary treatment, hoping to return to the national team if he recovers, and the "Pharaohs" continue in the tournament.
Salah received a great deal of criticism in sports and public circles in Egypt, after his decision to travel to Liverpool and leave the national team in the tournament, in order to receive optimal treatment.
On Thursday evening, Salah published his first photo during therapeutic exercises, inside the Liverpool FC training headquarters.
Salah appeared in the picture walking with a rubber band around his legs.
This photo received "ridicule" from some, due to the simple exercises performed by Salah, led by former Egyptian national team star Ahmed Hossam Mido.
Mido mocked the simplicity of the exercises, which he pointed out that Salah does not need to be in Liverpool to practice, such as the process of walking with a rubber corset.
The photo came hours after Salah published a “tweet” on the “X” website in which he confirmed that he would begin treatment, and attacked the skeptics in a sarcastic manner.
In the tweet, which he wrote in Arabic, Salah said that he had begun the treatment and rehabilitation program in order to be ready to return to the national team as soon as possible.
He said: “Yesterday I started the treatment and rehabilitation program, and I will do everything possible to be ready as soon as possible and return to the national team as was agreed upon from the beginning.”
He added: "I also love it and I love its people. Try harder," referring to the critics who accused him of prioritizing his loyalty to the Liverpool shirt over his loyalty to his country's national team.
It is noteworthy that the Egyptian national team qualified with difficulty for the round of 16 of the African Nations, where it will face the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday evening.
