MO SALAH has been blasted for “doing nothing” for Egypt by their former boss Hassan Shehata.

His goals have fired the Reds to all the honours available domestically as well as the Champions League.

And he insists that he should be contributing more to his country on the pitch.
Speaking to Sada El-Balad TV channel, he said: “Salah is a great player, he's done so much abroad and he's one of the world's biggest stars.

“But he didn't do anything for the Egyptian national team, he should have done more.”

He said: “I am honoured that I played with you and I am very proud to play with you whether I am with you or not in the future.”
