Salah led the Premier League with 34 goals last season.

When Mo Salah missed the Egyptian team's first practice at Akhmat Arena to recover from his shoulder injury, and opted to rest at the hotel where the team was staying instead, Kadyrov drove up to his hotel, woke him up and accompanied him to the stadium to meet fans.

Salah is expected to play for Egypt - already eliminated from the World Cup - in their Group A encounter with Saudi Arabia on Monday before flying home and embarking on a summer break.

That means the victor would be in good shape to advance past the group stage, and a draw could end up benefiting either or both. And the 26-year-old admits he's aiming to replicate his efforts with Liverpool with his country this summer.

That has been followed by Kadyrov granting honorary citizenship to Salah at a banquet on Friday night, as reported by Sky Sports.

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.

He returned for Egypt's 3-1 loss against the hosts but was not at his sharpest despite scoring a penalty.

CNN in the US reports that the 25-year-old is considering quitting the Egyptian national team, due to "unhappiness" with how the FA have used him for political purposes.

Before the tournament began, Salah was pictured alongside Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of the Chechen Republic, at Egypt's base in Grozny. "I gave Mohamed Salah a copy of the order and a pin at a celebratory dinner that I gave in honour of the Egyptian team". A source with knowledge of Salah's position on the matter confirmed this stance to ESPN FC, adding that the player is now considering his future with his national team. The Chechen leader posed for pictures with Salah while pinning a medal on his chest.

'Mohamed Salah thanked us for the surprisingly warm and good reception, excellent attitude to the team, excellent living conditions and training, ' Kadyrov posted on Russian social network site VK.
