Egypt National Team Coach Insist Mohamed Salah must rest

Egypt National team coach Hossam El Badry insist that Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah "must rest" and will miss Egypt's friendly against Botswana on October 14.
Hossam El Badry said he spoke to Salah following a report from the national team doctor on the fitness of the squad's overseas-based players.
"I agreed with him that it is in his best interests and those of the national team that he rests," El Badry told local channel MBC Masr.
"He won't be with us at the training camp for Botswana, but God willing, he will be with us for the official matches."
Salah and the Egyptian FA have butted heads before several times, most prominently when a photo of him was plastered on the squad's plane ahead of the 2018 World Cup, causing sponsorship problems for the star.
Hossam El Badry will officially take charge of his first match as Egypt coach against Botswana following his appointment last month.
Egypt national team will begin their qualifying campaign for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations at home to Kenya in November.
