Liverpool relief as Salah avoids three-match ban for Martins Indi clash

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah

Mohammed Salah's claim that he was deeply insulted by an image rights dispute in his native Egypt prompted top-level political intervention to swiftly resolve the issue.

Liverpool's star striker Mohamed Salah has hit out at the Egyptian Football Association over the unauthorised use of his image, saying he feels insulted less than two months before the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Egyptian hitman, who joined in a £37million deal from Roma last summer, has taken the Premier League by storm and he is on course to land the Golden Boot to add to another individual accolade, the PFA Player of the Year - which he picked up last week.

Liverpool reportedly fear losing Mohamed Salah for their final two Premier League games of the season following the Egyptian forward's clash with Bruno Martins Indi.

The Egyptian tweeted on Sunday that he felt "insulted" by his home country's football association and how they dealt with an image rights conflict.

Meanwhile, Egypt's Youth and Sports Minister, Khaled Abd el-Aziz stated that "we will be in contact with all the involved parties to solve the matter, especially as Egypt is preparing for the World Cup".

Salah scored the decisive goal against Congo.

Ramy Abbas, Salah's agent, said he has been waiting for a response from Egyptian officials.

Egypt qualified for the first time in 28 years for the World Cup and will be competing in group A with hosts Russia, Saudi Arabia and Uruguay at the tournament. With more than 40 goals this season, Salah has captivated the football-crazed nation of about 100 million people. "I was hoping the deal would be classier than this", he said on his personal Twitter account.

Hardly a day goes by without Salah on the front pages of Egyptian newspapers.

"I want to thank everyone for your support today", Salah tweeted late Sunday.

"What's the plan?! We just see more and more billboards and ads coming out which we have never authorised!"
