The Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Senegalese Sadio Mane, the Liverpool stars, and the Algerian Riyad Mahrez, the Manchester City winger, were subjected to a strong attack by former African players after the silence in which they enveloped their reaction towards their clubs refusing to participate in the African Nations Cup scheduled in Cameroon during the period from the ninth of January Until the sixth of February next.
And the most violent statement was from the legend of the Senegal national team, Henri Camara, who asked about the silence of the trio towards the continent of Africa, saying: Why all this silence?”, on the pressures from European clubs calling for the postponement or cancellation of the continental championship because they think only of themselves, forgetting that The African Cup is an important continental tournament like Europe and South America, and it should be played with all the professional players.
Camara told Senegal’s ITV network: “I think the time has come for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Riyad Mahrez to express their opinions to silence this controversy, and to think of logic for both English and European clubs. Why all this silence? The Africa Cup of Nations is a competition It is important for football on the continent, and there is no need to cancel or postpone it.”
There are great doubts about the participation of the three stars, Salah, Mane and Mahrez, who are considered the backbone of African football and the biggest attraction for the masses in the continental championship, which enjoys wide public follow-up and global attention.
