Mohamed Salah has hit out at the Egyptian FA over a dispute concerning his image rights. The quick turnaround showcased the mega star power of the 25-year-old Liverpool winger.

But Salah is furious with his image being displayed on the outside of the national team's plane.

The plane is being provided by official sponsor "WE", but Salah already has an individual sponsorship deal with rival telecommunications company Vodafone.

"Especially since Egypt is going to participate in the 2018 World Cup", Abdel-Aziz tweeted, as quoted by ESPN.

Liverpool sit six points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand, and Salah will hope to secure a victory for the Reds which will guarantee their place in the Champions League group stages next season.

Egypt qualified for the World Cup for the first time since 1990, with Salah scoring a last-gasp penalty in a 2-1 qualifying victory over Republic of Congo last October. The issue has now escalated into a full-blown altercation between Salah and his FA.

The association confirmed Abdel-Aziz's assertion that a resolution has been reached. "Thank you once more".

Abdel Aziz wrote a tweet on his account on Sunday saying, "We will be reaching out to all the parties involved to solve the crisis, especially that the national team is now preparing to take part in the World Cup".

Salah has arguably lived his most successful season in his professional career on personal level.

Hardly a day goes by without Salah on the front pages of Egyptian newspapers. I was extremely happy with the reactions. "I wished things could have been managed in a better way", he tweeted in Arabic. Numerous tweets touched on politics, making references to widespread corruption and inefficiency.

In response, a new Twitter hashtag, #support_mohamed_salah, was created, with fans posting messages of support for the star.
