A source with knowledge of Salah's position on the matter has confirmed this to be correct to ESPN FC, adding that the player is now considering his worldwide future.

Mo Salah is considering quitting the Egyptian national team due to his unhappiness over what has happened in Chechnya, where the team was based during the World Cup at Russian Federation 2018, a source close to the Liverpool forward has told CNN.

Egypt global Mohamed Salah will consider quitting his time with the national team after becoming unhappy at the reaction of him becoming an honorary citizen of the Chechen Republic, according to CNN.

CNN reported that Salah was uncomfortable with the criticism that followed the photo and is unwilling to being used as a political pawn.

Egypt's final World Cup game is against Saudi Arabia on Monday.

Salah led the Premier League with 34 goals last season.

"Salah was granted honorary Chechen citizenship by Kadyrov at a banquet held to say goodbye to the squad on Friday night". Kadyrov posed with Salah and Hany Abo Ride, chairman of Egypt's football federation for pictures.

The Egypt team have been based in the Chechen capital of Grozny during the tournament, a decision than has been criticised by some because of Kadyrov's alleged human rights abuses and the long distances the Egyptian team needed to travel before their group games. "That's right!" the Chechen leader wrote in a social media post. I didn't invite Mo Salah or the Egyptian team.

A video of the encounter released by the Russian state-funded news agency RT showed Salah smiling as Kadyrov gave a short speech and pinned a badge bearing the Chechen flag to the Liverpool forward's shirt. In an interview with BBC, he said: "Everyone has played here, even Maradona at our stadium, but we don't use this kind of thing for politics".

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.

Salah had a disagreement with the EFA in April over his image rights.
