Liverpool and Egypt superstar Mo Salah may be done with his national side once this World Cup concludes.

Sadio Mane said Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah has the mental strength to bounce back from injury and World Cup heartache, revealing Saturday that he sent him a message of support.

'Mohamed Salah is an honorary citizen of the Chechen Republic.

But as he struggled for fitness a picture of Salah walking beside Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov became a major talking point at the World Cup.

The Liverpool star has only featured in one of the Pharaohs' games at the World Cup this summer, scoring a consolation goal against Russian Federation after being left as an unused substitute in their opening match against Uruguay as he continued to recovery from a shoulder injury suffered in the Champions League final.

He returned for Egypt's 3-1 loss against the hosts but was not at his sharpest despite scoring a penalty.

Salah is claimed to be assessing his future, following what has turned into something of a debacle at Egypt's training base in Grozny, the capital of the Chechen Republic.

Kadyrov, leader of Chechnya since 2004, has been accused of numerous human rights violations, including discriminating against women and persecuting sexual minorities.

According to the Independent, "Rights groups and Western governments allege that authorities in Chechnya repress their political opponents, discriminate against women and persecute sexual minorities, all allegations that Chechnya's leaders deny".

Salah is expected to play for Egypt in their final group game against Saudi Arabia on Monday but his long-term future with the national team is uncertain. "I gave Mohamed Salah a copy of the order and a pin at a celebratory dinner that I gave in honour of the Egyptian team".

Friday night's banquet was held at Kadyrov's presidential palace in Grozny.

EFA boss Abo Rida insisted: 'We have our captain Mohamed Salah and under the rules Federation Internationale de Football Association requires him to be inside his camp and requires him to stay with his team. "They chose us themselves".
