Mohamed Salah furious over image rights dispute with soccer body

39;World class' Salah threatens Ronaldo Messi grip on Ballon d'Or

Footballers have been known to channel their frustration in various different ways, with some using their anger or irritation to inspire positive moments like a match-winning goal but on Saturday, it looks like Mohamed Salah went the other way.

Salah has four years left to run on his current £90,000-a-week deal.

The 25-year-old mentioned the situation on Twitter earlier.

The 25-year-old Egypt worldwide, who now leads the Premier League scoring charts with 31 goals to his name, appeared to flail a balled hand towards Netherland centre-back during Saturday's 0-0 draw with the Potters at Anfield. This is contradicting and opposing as the Liverpool striker has a sponsorship deal with Vodafone, a rival telecommunications firm.

Officials at Egypt's soccer association did not respond to repeated phone calls seeking comment.

Liverpool sit six points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand, and Salah will hope to secure a victory for the Reds which will guarantee their place in the Champions League group stages next season. He argued that EFA and its sponsor, the advertising agency, Presentation, needed to obtain written consent from MS Commercial (Cayman) before using the image.

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".

The Arabic hashtag "I support Mohammed Salah" was widely used online, with hundreds of thousands of fans declaring their unwavering support for the player against the federation.

The club are confident of Salah being happy to sign - the forward has showed no signs of wanting to leave the club once the season has ended - and Salah is expected to sign his new deal before the World Cup gets underway in June.
