A day later, the Egyptian team management has issued a response, providing reassurance to Mohamed Salah’s fans and his club, Liverpool, stating that the incident was not serious. They explained that the pitch invaders were described as passionate Premier League followers.
Additionally, the management asserted that a considerable number of people in Sierra Leone are supporters of Liverpool or Arsenal, making the opportunity to witness Salah and Mohamed Elneny in action at their home a rare and exciting experience for them.
Speaking to The Athletic, Egypt boss Mohamed Ghoraba said: “The story of it being an assault is not there at all. Here, the people are very kind and they support Liverpool or Arsenal.
“For them, Mohamed Salah and Mohamed Elneny are icons, so their presence in the country is something they wish to happen again. For them, that’s the only opportunity to have Salah playing in their ground, so it’s normal like any fan entering the pitch.”
