“Nigeria has players to win the tournament, I am just one player in my team. I don’t take questions and reactions personally. They have good players, but we will try our best to win tomorrow,” he said.

Salah then revealed his desire to lead Egypt to their eighth Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title.

“I’d want to win anything with the country, and I’ll give it my all for the squad,” he stated. We have a good coach and players, so we should be able to win.

“I’m just a part of the team,” he said, “and I wouldn’t consider myself the team’s most dangerous player.” I’ve came to join the squad and play some games.

Discussing Jurgen Klopp’s controversial comments on the Africa Cup of Nations, Salah defended his club manager.

“Klopp was joking when he said he wanted us to come. He told me he wanted me to win, but I’m not sure what he said to Mane. The AFCON is regarded as a big tournament in England.”
