Salah's precarious quest for change in EgyptThanks to his star power and a government keen to keep its most valuable international asset happy, Mohamed Salah won his latest tussle with Egypt's football federation after his demands for better security and improved discipline at the Pharaohs' camps were met. A letter sent by Abbas to the federation demanding its resignation if Salah's demands were not met was leaked by the federation last week, apparently to shame Salah.Hints of what could await Salah if he's perceived to have overstepped his limits already have surfaced during his quarrels with the federation, sometimes in a subtle fashion, sometimes not so much.Several Egyptian lawmakers have accused the group of trying to fuel Salah's dispute with the federation.Social media accounts dismissed as fake by federation officials have served Salah with other warnings.
