Salah Chelsea future under threat

Mohamed Salah's future at Chelsea is in doubt.

The London Evening Standard says Salah's Chelsea career is hanging in the balance as he may be ordered to return to Egypt to complete military service, Egyptian media reported.

Salah, who completed a move to Stamford Bridge from Swiss club Basel in January, is allowed to live in England on the basis of his participation in an educational programme.

However, his registration to that programme has been rescinded by the Minister of Higher Education in Egypt, the football website kingfut.com said, meaning the pacy 22-year-old may have to return to the country.

"Salah has expressed his shock about the decision," Egyptian National Team director Ahmed Hassan said on kingfut.com.

"He told me that he is trying to represent Egypt in the best way possible. Is this the best response from the country?"
