The star of the Egyptian national team Mohammed Salah says he won’t be drawn into exchanging words with captain of the senior national team of Nigeria Ahmed Musa.
Ahead of their clash tomorrow, the Super Eagles captain Musa said as much as all talks is on the Liverpool ace, they as a team are not worried about the threat he possesses as they also have players who are threatening as well.
“Everyone is talking about Salah, but if you look at our team we have lots of players they will be worried about,” Musa declared during a press conference held in Abuja on Tuesday.
“So we don’t have to think about Salah; they have to think about our own players.
“They talk about Salah but we have players like Samuel Chukwueze and others on the wings who are very dangerous, so that’s football,” the Super Eagles captain explained.
Salah was asked about the comments of the Fatih Karagumruk winger and he responded by saying he wouldn’t be drawn into a war of words with Musa as he has respect for him.
” Both teams have good players, they have the chance to win. We will do our best to win tomorrow. I don’t think there is need to reply him because he is someone I respect so much. Super Eagles have a good team but we would our best to defeat them”, he said at the pre match conference ahead of the game.
