According to the report on Egypt Independent, Mohamed Salah expressed unhappiness about the attitude of Egypt coach Carlos Queiroz.

Mohamed Salah's statement

''He is stubborn with the Egyptian people, and if he sees people heading right, he will go to the left, and he always deals with the fans in this way.
“Is it reasonable that there is no one in Egypt who knows football, and only Queiroz is the one? Queiroz will always oppose the people of Egypt and there is no result.
''Queiroz decided to exclude Afsha Mohamed Magdy from the team because the fans love the player, and Queiroz always does the opposite to the fans.”
