One word from Ramy Abbas sent the rumour mill into overdrive.
“Fuming," he tweeted Ramy Abbas, before later following up with: “To those protesting against my cryptic messages please remind me about the last time they didn't work."
The Liverpool Echo reports sources in Egypt state that Abbas' ire has nothing to do with the Reds. In fact it's just the latest chapter in a strained relationship with the Egyptian FA.
Referring to the pictures of Salah with the Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov, Abbas also tweeted: "When it was once said that a picture speaks a thousand words, apparently not. So here are the words: regardless of background, ethnicity, orientation, preferences, everyone deserves respect, and equal rights. #RespectForAll."
