Mohamed Salah is reportedly considering quitting the Egypt national team because of his involvement with Chechnya during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 26-year-old is claimed to feel "exposed" after being made an honorary citizen by Chechnya leader Ramzan Kadyrov.

Salah, who was forced to miss Egypt's opening defeat against Uruguay as a result of the shoulder injury he suffered in last month's Champions League final against Real Madrid, is still expected to play for Egypt in their Group A finale with Saudi Arabia on Monday before flying home and embarking on a summer break.

Salah missed the opener against Uruguay, a 1-0 defeat, while he and his Egypt side were overrun by hosts Russian Federation 3-1 to exit the tournament at the group stage with one game remaining.

Egypt striker Amr Gamal said that Salah's injury "killed" their chances of success and now the Liverpool striker could quit global football due to his fury at being used for political gain during the tournament.

Chechnya leader Kadyrov is backed by the Kremlin but is under sanctions imposed by the United States, which accuses him of contravening human rights.

"That's right! 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".

In the social media post, Mr Kadyrov added that he wants Egypt to return to Chechnya after the World Cup for a friendly against local club Akhmat Grozny - named after his father, who was assassinated in 2004. I didn't invite Mo Salah or the Egyptian team.

EFA boss Abo Rida insisted: 'We have our captain Mohamed Salah and under the rules Federation Internationale de Football Association requires him to be inside his camp and requires him to stay with his team.

Salah was honoured during a banquet held to bid farewell to the Egypt squad held at Kadyrov's presidential palace in Grozny on Friday night.

Salah had a disagreement with the EFA in April over his image rights.

There has been a massive fall-out ever since the pictures emerged and Kadyrov was accused of using Salah as a propaganda stunt. "They chose us themselves".
