Salah will receive call for Tokyo Olympics but yet to make decision
It's a worrying trend in modern football, with countless international tournaments and meaningless friendlies occurring seemingly all year round.
The Olympics, of course, would mean that if Egypt go far Salah could well miss a chunk of the start of next season. Along with the AFCON in January next year too.
But the forward's agent has stated on Twitter that the player is yet to make any sort of a decision regarding whether he'll accept the call up to the Tokyo Olympics.
It all adds up to one of our most important players missing potentially 2 months of next season, if they prove to be a success.
