Egyptian Coach Blames Chelsea for Losing Their First Game

Egypt coach Shawky Gharib is not happy, and he has too many things to blame after Egypt lost their African Cup of Nations qualifying game against Senegal. However, the top reason he thinks why he lost the game was because of Chelsea.

According to his wisdom, Mohamed Salah could not perform up to his potential because of the lack of match fitness and thinks that Chelsea is to be held responsible for it as they have benched Salah for the most part of the season.

‘The poor fitness of the players, especially Chelsea’s Mohamed Salah, is also a reason for the loss.


The Egyptian league hasn’t started yet and also Salah didn’t regularly play with Chelsea. If Salah is off-form, Egypt’s performance is always affected.’

Do you agree with him? Should we give Salah more playing time? If yes, then who should he be replacing in the usual starting eleven?



  1. i think that mister shawky went astray,
    of blaming chelsea,for salah’s poor fitness.
    that means he was counting on an individual performance, while senegal was playing collectively. And i’m sure he is to be
    blammed for counting on an individual performance,and luck of experience.

  2. i dont think its fair to blame chelsea for salah poor performance. coz if its training he trains with others. so he has to look where is problem n rectify rather than blames it would help.

  3. oh blaming chelsea is d solution let him work on his team n stop d talking! salah wil surly av playing time, leta its just d start of d season das y he is not playing let him b patients

  4. Football is base on a team effort not just an individual. So please know what you talking next time before you start to blame chelsea.
